I look forward to Coors Light in the Salcombe Yacht Club very soon!

Sad news for the drinker and local economy but good for the seller! Experience shows that big brewers' promises are empty.  They will analyse the minerals in the water and make it elsewhere in some giant factory then set about asset stripping.  Pity really but I suppose inevitable.  Its a good job Merlins aren't made that way.

Well if you from the East at least you have access to the only proper beer - Adnams.

And also, Fat Cat, Woodfordes, Wolfe, Mersea Island,Batemans,Nethergate, mauldons, St Peters and many others. More breweries than Merlin designs so now is the time to plan your Merlin brewery crawl.

It's not like a long established brewery going down; 15 years then sell up to take a profit. The others mentioned were all old established brewers and although it's a good drop of beer, you can't compare with the likes of Adnams.

I'd rather drink the contents of my sailing boots than drink Coors Light. Hope they keep their hands off Betty Stoggs.
