    I'm with you on all of those. I can't see both of us being thrown out...

    At 03.07 this morning I couldn't be bothered to spell hypocrites , so idiots it is. That's if these people exist, not my words.

    It would be like me and other like minded people going to a Wetherspoons beer festival.

Sours I wouldn't have gone near five years ago, but am now getting into some on occasion. In defence of Roger Protz, we're not mates or anything like that but I have been out drinking with him on a couple of occasions and he visits my local two or three times a year, he's a decent and interesting chap in my book, I know he champions old school beer but he is quite open to new stuff as well ,
    as far as politics go I have no interest in them whatsoever in any walk of life let alone the beer world, which is why that although I'm a CAMRA member I don't get to involved at branch level.
    My beef with Protz ( cant deny he is very knowlegeable about beer)is he writes too many articles about the family brewers of Britain.We know everything there is to know about them and its boring.He still champions the boring bitter brigade rather than the new kids on the block.

    This is why I like his alternative point of view!

    I agree. Not all of the new breweries are what you might call "craft". Two near me, ELB & Redemption are almost entirely cask and generally old school. He is widening the schism between younger craft fans and the fossils that refuse to accept that there are much better beers around than those from most of the old independents. His blatant support for Bass should result in his removal as editor. You have to wonder if he's getting a bung from Mouldy Corpse.
