    Not sure I'd be boasting about it being associated with disasters / failures such as Titanic, Shackleton & Concorde

    They are going to find that the Premium Bottled and Canned Ale market is a very crowded place nowadays and I hope it's to their cost. My local Tesco which isn't an Extra branch already does beers from Thornbridge, Brewdog, Wild Card, Vocation and several others. If they do it at under a quid a bottle I'll try one.

    They already brew a keg version of it for export. I agree with you totally, beer like that should be sold in 500ml or pint bottles. I really hope they fall flat on their face with this.

    On Seeing the Lizards blog he has mentioned he works in a shop and since Thornebridge decided to put their beers in small bottles the sales of Jaipur have plummeted.Another beer that should be drank in pints or 500ml.I only buy large bottles or tins unless its something strong and a dinky bottle of Jaipur just seems wrong.

    Wants to make it into a licensed wedding venue. I guess that means Vegan Lesbians if you read between the lines.

    "We think it's a tasteful, sympathetic and reasonable decision" - as a vegetarian I think it's none of those things. There really should be a law against landlords who obviously don't understand anything about pubs tearing up history like this.
