    Default Sam Smiths EPIC FAIL

    Best just read it and make your mind up...regardless of the rights or wrongs, this isn't a fight worth having, surely?

    It's easy to tell the difference between Sam Smiths & Cropton.

    One brews a variety of good, tasty real ales. The other one brews Old Brewery Bitter and that's it.

    I've actually done a brewery tour of both of these, Cropton won there as well.

    It's pathetic, but reading alleged doings by the SS management on other sites I've concluded that they are tight paranoid morons. I once started a thread asking whether the regulars on here would rather have a Spoons or Sam's pub open up as their local and I chose Sam's - I've changed my mind after all I've read over the last few months.

    Sam's lost their way long ago. When I was a student in the late 70s they were just arriving on the scene in London, and finding OBB in a pub was a find indeed in a city awash with keg WatBreads and if you were lucky Charrington's IPA. Then they got a couple of pubs, put only keg stuff in them and it was downhill all the way.

    I see someone on the other site is systematically going through all Sam's pubs telling the sordid tale, good on them - Just don't do it on here!

    I think old Humph might really have done it this time. The White Rose is such a potent symbol of the county's identity and regional pride. People are spitting feathers, as the facebook page shows: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Boycot...30834506968949

    They were already on my fail list for not returning Al 10000's hand written list.

    Agreed, its very poor form from the brewery and it will stop me drinking there (I only ever really went to the London ones - the central Leeds SS pub is rubbish)

    Hello by the way to anyone who might remember me from the other site - I was recommended here by Gann.

    None around here so I do not drink Sam Smith's anyway, but it really is something one would hope to see on front page of Daily Mail [sorry about using that name]

    Shame on SS
