Never been a John Smiths fan, his Nephew's ales on the other hand, different class IMO. Anyway where is Richard, he loves a pint of Smooth. :P

I am with you on that one ... Sam Smith's ales are superior.
I thought the were originally brothers ...

So did I but this suggests not. ( If I have read it correctly)

It says they were brothers ..John, Samuel and William.

In 1879 John Smith died and did not see the completion of this magnificent £130,000 building which opened in 1883. He left his personal estate, which included such items as the barrels and brewery equipment, in equal shares to his brothers, Samuel, a tanner from Leeds, and William, a bachelor.

A Tanner is just about a pint of SAM SMITHS is worth.

And as for the flat cask stuff 3d would be too much.

A pint of SMOOTH is the future. :SNOOTY:

RIP The Corner Pin, Doncaster.

Some good memories but another which ultimately appeared to suffer at the hands of Enterprise.

The next Wetherspoons Real Ale Festival will (officially) run from Wednesday 9 October until Sunday 20 October 2019.

40 ales will be available this time, marking 40 years since founder Tim Martin opened his first outlet in 1979. 35 UK and 5 International breweries will be represented.


Particularly looking forward to ...

Tring American Ruby Mild 3.8%
Hydes Ruby Celebration Ale 4.0%
Liberation Colney Hatch 4.0%
Castle Rock Heart of Glass 4.2%
Exmoor Barista 4.2%
Birrificio Argo Terzo Tempo 4.4% (Italian brewer)
Belhaven Barn Dancer 4.5%
Evan Evans Fire Island Buffalo 4.6%
Mash Challenger English IPA 4.8% (Australian brewer)
Mauldons Cherry Porter 4.8%
Alesmith Nut Brown 5.0% (American brewer)
Brains Red Dragon 5.0%
Green Jack One Step Beyond 5.0%
Greene King Ruby Abbot 5.2%
Wychwood King Goblin 6.0%

However, 40 in a week and a half will take some doing.

When it was 50 ales, the festival was two and a half weeks. Dropped to 30 ales it was a week and a half.

Logic says this should be a two week festival.

Spoons Festival Ale ...

Belhaven Barn Dancer 4.5%, a brown ale. Pours clear brown. Aroma, bready & earthy. Taste is bready, malt, toffee and nuts. Quite pleasant.
(Gatehouse, Doncaster).
