Actually it never ceases to amaze me of the kind of stupidity that some people conjur up in their heads at times :D

I had the nitro ipa last week - not sure it was that hoppy and the nitro makes it less so, kind of tasted almost like so-so cold cask ale.

I do have sneaking regard for hop house 13. It seems to play to Diageo's agenda of making beer that can be drunk in volume even if it has some hops in it. I wonder if the clean lager base means they need less hops as well...

It is a bit childish but if the promoters weren't upfront about Diageo's presence to other breweries it is no wonder people are annoyed. Their presence annoys me because they are only there because they feel threatened/want to seem hip. If they had their way we'd be back to four beer options or less.

The graffiti appeared after hours during the brewers' lock in cleaning up time. Not too much security around at that point. I saw it being wiped off and I doubt it was up for long.

I've been there for the cleanup time and it does go for a long time. It's hard work.
