Pint of Hobgoblin. Still my favourite beer.

I was surprised to see a wagon entering Banks' brewery recently with Hobgoblin all over it.

Checking I saw that Wychwood was now part of the Marstons group who, following their take over of W&D some years ago, moved their HQ to Wolves. And they also own Ringwood, Brakspear and Jennings.

Who knows where anything is brewed there days ?

I'm afraid a lot of the so-called 'real' ale brewers are going over to the dark side these days.
I stick with Wood's, The Ludlow Brewery, Wye Valley & Hobson's (at a push).
Quite spoilt for a pint round here.

Edit:
And as far as I know Tsing Tao is now the only 'asian' beer that's imported.
Cobra, Tiger etc ...all brewed in UK

Inevitable really I suppose bearing in mind its marketing and such a shame really that it's no longer independent.

Still tastes good though.

Hobgoblin that is.

I kind of feel like I deserve a drink later. Might have a glass of whisky.
