    I totally agree; I've been wary of their beers since they watered down the Hop Bomb, probably about the same time the Liverpool shower took them o#ver. The original Peaky Blinder is billed as a Black IPA but isn't. It's not black, is too weak for one and is nowhere near hoppy enough. It's more like a brown ale.
    I went to their brewery tap earlier in the year and found it way well overpriced for the Black Country.
    Sadlers and Hawkshead are now well and truly on my avoid list.

    Amber have owned it for some time and hadn't done anything, but yesterday I walked past and there are loads of skips outside being filled with tat.

    Surprisingly 9/14 and only one of them was a guess.

    8/14 but the Smiths one was unclear about how you could answer so I'm claiming 9, the Stonegate price varied according to where you read it and what was included. Mostly educated guesses.

    Lots of guesses and made 12/14, which completely surprised me!
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement
