    So next time we ride there, we'll all have to stop and say, hey I can see the brewery from 'ere.

    There's an inevitability about these transactions. The big brewers aren't really brewers, they are marketing and distribution companies. The small brewers are great at brewing beer but useless at the marketing and distribution.

    One hopes they continue to exist in Huddersfield and not somewhere more difficult for me to cycle to/train home

    So, who next?

    Meanwhile, I've had a bad case of the flu but I felt so fever-free this afternoon that I managed to cycle over to Deptford, where I had a very good Wander Beyond Rising Embers. It's a great porter.

    I don't know how big Magic Rock are but Fourpure were pretty big when Lion came along on the prowl. I suspect that there's a point where independents hit too many obstacles to expansion. BBNo is nowhere near the scale of 4pure and I'd have thought they could easily take the next step up using crowdfunding.

    The next stage of my beer rehabilitation involved a ride to Greenwich followed by a stop off at the Dog and Bell, where i chanced upon a Kent Brewery Old Jamaica stout. Hints of ginger and toffee but a little disappointing.

    What the big brewers are really good at is cost cutting. Carlos Brito has built his entire career on it. No matter how much MR say it won’t happen, quality will suffer and likely craft brewers won’t do collabs with them anymore so they’ll be less innovation.

    No more MR for me.

    And there seems to be enough new kids on the block still willing to fill the innovative void.

    This fruity magnificence from a small scale local brewer proves my point. Sundowner.
    The murky mess under that one was also from a local Brewer, Abyss, in my newly crafty shitehole boozer. Lovely stuff.

    srw It's a bit more complicated than that...

    Passion fruit, mango and pineapple purée? Why not have a farking Lilt Shandy.

    Why not you just post the pics and comments of the beers you like, rather than criticising the tastes of others?

    Darkstar APA 4.7%. Very much north American flavour. It's alright.

    An Arbor Evening. The Zero is a lovely zingy session ale; the Yakima is a decent nightcap but is suffering in my eyes from comparison with Space Hardware, which I couldn't get my mitts on this evening.
