    I'm not sure what the significance of drinking in every English city is. I don;t have a list of them but would be surprised if they came to over 100. Wales is another matter as I know I'm missing one of the six, namely St Asaph. I've never been there, know it's in NE Wales eerrrr that's it!
    I've been to all five of his favourite pubs and am glad he included the JDW Imperial but there were pubs I much preferred in Alton & Newcastle Staffs.
    I'm missing one of his beers & breweries as I don't believe I've had a Cloudwater beer. Stay Puft is good but rather sweet and as for Pedigree he looks old enough to know that it's not the beer it was over 25 years ago. I don't know Leatherbritches that well but on most days Salopian is my favourite.
    It's a more plausible claim than that one some time ago. I very much doubt if I've been to as many pubs as the pack leaders on this site. With few exceptions, I find myself taking extended stays in favoured venues nowadays.

    Looks like you're not missing much! https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/areas/s...central/clwyd/ (Custodian 42 has been there, and there are no beers stronger than
    4.5% in the whole city.)
    Come On You Hatters!

    Well we all have different criteria for making towns/cities worth visiting, St Asaph is chapel country of course so may be a bit lack lustre. It would be useful if there were informative reviews for all the pubs; Alan H has done his best and there is WhatPub but that usually pulls its punches.

    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    St Asaph has a population of around 3,000, I actually think having ten open pubs is pretty impressive for a place of that size!

    Lidl plans to open pub in supermarket. Makes a welcome change from people converting pubs into supermarkets I suppose.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Default Stones Bitter to return to Sheffield pubs with original recipe.

    With the recent outpouring of love for draught Bass culminating in National Bass Day, on April 11th, I wonder if there if there will be anything like the same enthusiasm shown for the return this beer. I suspect not.

    It was notorious for giving drinkers severe morning after headaches, as commentators on some social media sites have noted and was nicknamed 'Yellow Peril', accordingly. I seem to recall a few of my own.

    I remember Stones, or was it Wards,from a visit to I think Rotherham in about 1976.Can't remember much about it, to be fair. Stones used to be available in the free trade in Kent for some time, though it took a lot for anything to wean me off my Fremlins.

    We used to drink the keg version and Charrington's Toby at https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/23082/ over 35 years ago. I can't remember it but suspect that it was none too memorable.

    It was a fairly indifferent regional Bass beer as I remember it, if slightly stronger than the average, although I see it won Silver in the Bitter category of Champion Beer of Britain in 1991 (probably due to heavy voting by devotees). Subsequently it became keg only to a much watered-down recipe. Amusingly the cask version was also relaunched in 2006 as "how it used to taste" but had fizzled out by 2011.
