    Take a look at this Google Map I created. I have a plan of doing a bit of a brewery cycle tour weekend this year so trying to gather as many tap room locations as possible.

    Only problem with that is you have to spend a night in Reading...not wrong about the breweries though!

    Plenty of other decent pubs/coffee places within 5/10 minutes walk also.
    Nottingham isn't a bad shout, haven't been there for a while...

    It's quite the price to pay for good beer.
    Socks before or after trousers, but never before pants. That's the rule.

    Cheltenham is also a possibility but Deya is a little far out.
    I think I was spoiled by Buxton Brewery's Taphouse! Incidentally I also still have a bottle of Yellow Belly Final Batch which I picked up when I went there earlier in the year...

    There's an ace bottleshop/tap room in Cheltenham called Favourite Beers as well as Deya.

    Shame Wild Beer is no more in Cheltenham. Deya is walkable from the train station I believe.

    Is/was that Stormtrooper pale ale any good, or does it just hang around entry level? They don't seem to sell it by me.

    In other news, a local brewery (Bragdy Twt Lol) took severe flood damage from the storms we've just had (record high water levels, etc) and they are having to crowdfund to get back on their feet. https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/twtlol

    It's looking like it will take them at least two months to get going again which is a big shame, they make some tasty brews

    My dad is going to the Holdens brewery later for emergency supplies.

    No doubt people will moan at him when they see the back of his car totally filled up with bottles of Golden Glow, but that's what he does once every few months when he's running out - it's not a one off panic spend.

    He said he'll get me a couple of packs. Bless him.

    Is there a shortage of Golden Glow? Don't have a problem and I doubt if anyone else would. Holdens and other independent breweries will struggle if pubs aren't ordering so in my eyes your dad is helping them.

    No, but if my mum is labelled 'at risk' when her current round of medication ends early next week, they'll be housebound for 12 weeks!

    It'll send them both stir crazy.

    Loads of independent bars and pubs are gonna really struggle thanks to Boris's "advice". Had he ordered them to close they could at least get insurance to cover their bills etc.

    What a complete surprise that he's just looking out for his rich chums in the insurance game and hanging the small guys out to dry...

    Before we go full in on Boris I think it's worth saying that business interruption insurance may not cover Covid-19 and government decrees. It's also likely that most small businesses don't have business interruption insurance.

    Macron had this right and that is where Boris or Sunak in his statement this afternoon should give business the crumbs of comfort they need.
    Nothing to see here...... can't offend sensitive souls.

    The seeds are in the beer mat and you just plant that.

    His advice has made sure they have zero chance of it tho.

    Zurich have already confirmed they're not covering any Enterprise Inns tenants (buying their insurance is compulsory as well).
