    It might be just the price, some of the BM beers are quite strong making them expensive for the area and of course some people just won't drink stronger beers. When I went to the Loughborough one last Autumn the guest was Bateman's XB which seemed to be generally a popular beer up there and was cheaper then the Blue Monkey beers.
    There are a significant number of people who go to the William in Leyton and will only drink the Bethnal Green which is Brodie's only boring brown beer.

    No its because they like the taste.I had to drink it when I was in Devon this year as practically every pub had it.Its for people who don't like much flavour in their beer.I thought it was rubbish.

    Oh dear, you have my sympathy!! If I were to go to Devon it would be for the cider mostly, and I believe that despite other claims Devon is the cider capital of the UK. I don't know the county that well but it always seemed like that to me!

    Cider =battery acid to me but I did bring some bottled cider home which was pretty good.I didn't see much cider around other than the commercial stuff.And I didn't see a lot of interesting local beers .Doombar seemed to be the beer of choice .The landlords choice probably.

    Default Mexican Mondays

    They've started a new club called Mexican Mondays. I'm glad to say this hasn't replaced Cheapskate Monday where the guests are around 20p a pint cheaper. I have to say I would have preferred a Chinese or Italian club but I might give it a go.
    I had my first festival ale today and it was Titanic Wit Stout (5%). It was outstanding and at £1.99 on Cheapskate Monday all the better!
