    Just shows how true "lies, damn lies & statistics"

    It is based on per head of population which is meaningless. But never let inconvenient truths get in the way of a good story

    Default Good news for the Shipley and Saltaire drinking scene.

    Bradford pub owner William Wagstaff has big plans for the Shipley Pride.

    That's very good news and makes Shipley a great destination with The Fox and Saltaire Brewery Tap nearby and some decent curry houses.On the Leeds & Liverpool as well

    I f you include the 2 million tourists renting holiday homes most weeks in the summer it actually has less breweries per head of population than Saudi Arabia.And I may add how come they only have Doombar in all the pubs if they have such a thriving industry.Only joking but thought Yorkshire would have claimed that title.They seem to claim every other one.

    You beat me to it with the above. I can only think of a couple of St Austell beers that I like, the majority are horrible sweet malty things where they ran out of hops in the brewing process.
