    Or we could do a Gunge mercy mission and send homebrew. Might need to send a keg each rather than a bottle each though.

    I think Gunge is hypnotising us into sending him beer having been part of a top secret government project on mind control.

    Some of those beers used to be good though. What's really galling is buying stuff you used to like and finding they've messed around with it. Can anyone point to any 'big name' ales that are still reliable? Subjective, I know...

    This exactly. 'Things' certainly ain't what they used to be. Ah well...

    Brewery develops a good beer.
    Beer lovers try it, enjoy it.
    The beer sells well.
    Brewery tries to increase production to keep up with sales.
    Brewery bought out by Marston's or similar.
    Shops and pubs now flooded with the beer, which sells.
    Beer now tastes like sh!te.

    I'm sure we can all think of several examples that have followed this path.

    It’s called the Marston’s - Greene King effect.

    Fullers still produce good beers (well, most of them are good), but they’ve just sold their brewery business, so I expect the Griffin Brewery to be flats within 5 years and the beer to be made in Milton Keynes or something.
