    pump 5 Binghams -vanilla stout
    Oakham should be in there. 4 or 5 of their beers could be interchange with Dark Star or Thornbridge.

    I'm going for beers that are no longer available in their original form and as far as Boddies and Bass go it's back to the seventies.

    Brakspear Bitter - the Wychwood one is nothing like the Henley original.
    King & Barnes Old - some of the current Horsham micros have made a good job of recreating this.
    Boddington's Bitter - It was never the same after it escaped from Manchester and the NW.
    Pitfield Street Dark Star - a bit of mischief!
    Draught Bass - It was ruined in the early eighties and is now just a poor variation on Pedigree.

    I could add the two Young's bitters, Marston's Owd Roger, Lees Moonraker, Ruddles County, Gibbs Mew Bishop's Tipple and many more but... Oh! I just have.

    My 2013 selection for the five handpumps would cover a range of styles

    Pump 1 (Mild) Mighty Oak Oscar Wilde
    Pump 2 (Session Bitter) Bathams Bitter
    Pump 3 (Strong IPA) Marble Lagonda IPA
    Pump 4 (Porter) Red Squirrel London Porter
    Pump 5 (Stout) Titanic Chocolate and Vanilla Stout

    That's pretty close to beer heaven.

    No place for some cracking brews in that line up,I will just have to open a second boozer
    My only changes would be:

    Pump 4 Titanic Plum Porter
    Pump 5 Siren Craft Broken Dream.

    The pub would get a 10 .
