Bad brewing news

We're all supposed to be worried about the drop in beer sales, but I'm not going to. I'm going to celebrate. The only people actually whinging about it are the producers of mass-market slop - Carling, Carlsberg, Fosters, Stella. Muck, the lot of it. Microbreweries are enjoying record sales. People aren't switching off beer. They're switching to decent beer and that, friends, is reason to celebrate.
In fact, I'd drink to it. If I had any beer in the house...

A friend of mine works at Tetley's in Leeds, a place where they once knew how to brew proper beer, and he says they are now talking seriously of closing the place next year.

So its not all bad news then...

Precisely.
All them nitrokeg shite beers that end in the word 'smooth' as well - they're not selling. Probably because they're all flat, tasteless crap.
