I've heard rumours for a little while but it seems that the pandemic has hit Skinners hard. They have started a crowdfunding campaign to try and keep it going till the pubs open. It'll be a sad day if they go to the wall.

I remember Skinners. Even went on the brewery tour while I was camping near Truro. Great beer names and pump clips as I recall, but I found all their beers very sweet. That didn't hold me back on the brewery tour, though, which amounted to about 10 or 15 minutes looking at some vessels and then an hour an hour or so in the hospitality centre. :laugh8:

For me, they have been left behind a little bit but some of their beer, Lushingtons or Porthleven for example are great.

Ah. Things have moved on. In my day it was all Betty Stoggs and Cornish Blonde and one with a flasher hiding his bits behind a barrel. Don't recall having tasted the two you mention.

Mate of mine got a barrel of Ginger ****** in for his wife's birthday party a few years back, sipping a few of those at his smallholding looking out over the sdea watching the sun go down was brilliant. I see they've "retired" the name of this beer now, probably not PC. Always enjoyed their beers when in Cornwall.

We had Lushingtons at our wedding (originally from Cornwall). Special place in my heart for the drink I had at the best party i've ever been to :)

Sad day, hope they survive.
Trips down to Cornwall always involved tangling with Betty Stoggs.

The good news is the croudfunding raised the target £100k in four days
Additional money is now being raised to develop a community space outside the brewery now for events to be held to benefit local charities.
