    Of course the Crafterati may feel sorry for people they feel are not enjoying the fruits of the one true path, they might just dislike older people or they are just shallow neophiles.

    Hopefully that's insulted the lot of them
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    I agree entirely. (Not saying what with though).
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Remember, other treasures on 'Welcome to the Pleasuredome' included 'Relax (Come Fighting)' and 'War (...and Hide)' but ended on 'The Power of Love' then 'Bang'!

    I'm agreeing with everyone so as not to offend anyone.

    A good album with very good production values on the vinyl full-side introduction song.

    Bass, possibly now under threat with the Marston's/Carlsberg merger?

    I suppose AB Inbev may decide to get someone other than Martson's/Carlsberg to contract brew Bass.May all depend on the details in the contract which I would guess is very complex.However from an AB Inbev point of view,moving production away from Burton might impact any "heritage" marketing of Bass in future.

    Roll of the dice. A new owner who wants to make a statement by properly reviving the first ever trademarked beer for easy PR win could be on the cards. Plus the associated branded merch (think of all the Guinness paraphernalia you see).

    Or they might just sell it off if someone comes in with a high enough bid.

    We haven't seen anything of Aqualung since 8 May, when he responded uncompromisingly to Richard's request for him to "stop this patronising drivel". Does anyone know anything about him? It's not like him to be silent.
