Yeah, I tried lining them up too. Didn't work very well.

Good stuff James. List added to website. I presume that's Mad Hatter with the Fatter Stout rather than vice versa. Be a hell of coincidence if it wasn't.

Bugger. How did that get transposed? I'll check the master sheet when I get home. For the time being I'll blame Mr W.

Hope there's a good enough selection for beer geeks, tickers and people who don't care about the bollocks and just want decent beer.

Herding brewers is like herding cats.

No story really, I'm just not happy with it. Worked out what I did wrong but I'd rather not have a false start with a boring beer. Thankfully I was in the position to try it and pull it before it went on sale.

Nothing wrong with it as such, it's just not what I wanted.

Ah fair enough, I initially thought from your tweet that there may have been an amusing story behind it.

I am an idiot! I'll tell you tomorrow. It's not that amusing. I'm pretty gutted actually.
