A story I’ve been following on the Brookston Beer Bulletin: There’s an interesting battle of wills taking place in the Lewes Arms pub in East Sussex, England. It seems large English brewer Greene King has bought the pub, replacing the fine local beer they normally serve with Folger’s Crys…er…their own beer.
Needless to say, this has incensed the locals, who love their pub and their brewery. A boycott is in effect and business is off 90%.
I like Greene King’s beers, but their attitude sucks. It’s good to see a grassroots effort against corporate arrogance working for a change.
