(Getting seriously off-topic now - sorry!)

Another thing I hate about Greene King - you go into their pubs and they have a "guest" beer which is always "Morlands" Old Speckled Hen or "Ruddles" County, or "Ridley's" Old Bob. Guess where these "guest" beers are brewed? Yes, Bury St Edmunds, at the GK brewery (these are all breweries taken over and closed down in the past few years by GK). When is a guest not a guest? When it's a beer in a Greene King pub. It should be illegal to bill an ale as "guest" when it's brewed by the same brewery that owns the pub, IMO.

Now they've taken over and closed Hardy & Hanson's Nottingham brewery. So expect guest "Kimberley" ales soon at your local GK pub!

(Continuing my one-man GK boycott, except under duress) >:-(
