    Here's my take on this :-

    1) It was always known as Tavern Keg.
    2) I had no idea that KI were that old!
    3) I thought it happened in the 1970s!
    5) I had something in the back of my mind that ESB was a rarely found winter ale.
    6) Is a pint of Gold Top less fattening than a pint of Batemans Mild?
    7) Dortmund was a total guess. I know nothing anout German beer but had something in the back of my addled mind that there was a beer connection with Dortmund.
    10) I've been to Princetown but was following the New Testament (cider guide) across Dartmoor. Hill's cider was in just about every pub. Jail Ale to me is an imitation of Directors, very sweet and brown. Sadly it's a permanent fixture in many SW England Spoons.

    Good quiz! I once did a quiz with a picture round including brewery logos from the 1978 GBG. Included were the Ram and Griffin which I thought would be nice and easy. Nobody had a clue! The worst thing was that it was in a MacMullen's pub and nobody even knew the Hart!

    Hopefully you weren't sent there at the request of a High Court Judge!

    I'd never heard of it, but I knew the jingles for Double Diamond and Whitbread Trophy. Even Sherlock Holmes would have got that one.

    I knew Kelham Island Brewery was that old, but I thought Sharps was from the '80s, and so older!

    You may well think that but I couldn't possibly comment.
    I do remember looking down at the prison through a haze of Devon cider.

    I suspect that:
    a) it would have been scrumpy rather than cider; and
    b) if you remember anything, you must have been sold the grockle version!

    Hills cider used to be the cider most places in Devon stocked in the 1980s . I remember it being dry rather than scrumpy. It was nowhere near as strong as the Biddendon Kent cider and in those days Devon probably had no breweries. I think the idea of cider for the grockles came from the days when a local farm would provide the cider. to a pub.
    I don't know why Hills stopped but their cider were commonplace throughout Devon. It was the cider County rather than Somerset but my favourite was and probably still is Herefordshire.
