Surprising, as Wadworth's have supplied for many years.

I hope they have some lighter ales.

Since the beginning?  If not certainly since the mid-80s anyway....

Since 1983, according to "The Woodworm Years".

Anyway, the tie-up with Hook Norton is potentially good news, nothing wrong with their beers.

A change is probably due, after all, a couple of years ago I set up a tongue-in-cheek petition asking Wadworth to re-instate regular 6X alongside the "Gold" gluten-free variety. It got 55 signatures  Smiley

You'll be after this one Andy - same as me

HOOKY 3.5% ABV
A subtly balanced, amber bitter, hoppy to the nose, malty on the palate – the classic session beer, eminently drinkable.

See: Auburn, light amber
Smell: Hoppy, soft fruit
Taste: Malty, fresh, bittersweet

Mmmm - Hooky Gold....


Just my personal favourite - I usually take a trip past the brewery to pick up a few bottles as it's almost impossible to find up here in Glasgow.

Fairly certain it was Theakstons at Farewell Farewell and the first reunion.

I love 6X.
Unfortunately those around me the next day don't like how my system handles it.

"I love 6X."

Say that out loud and people around you might indeed be worried. (Try it now. 😉)

Deffo Theakstons in 79.  I remember buying my sister a half of Old Peculier - and having (!) to then drink it as she didn't like it.  We stayed on't Best Bitter for the rest of the evening.

My understanding is that Wadworths got the gig when Theakstons concluded that supplying so far a way as Cropredy. The bar was being run by the late, great Neil Cutts, landlord of The White Bear in Masham, the Thakston brewery tap. I recall, probably in 1988 the Daily Mail magazine did a feature on Cropredy. The WHite Bear was my local at the Time and I was in there, chatting with Neil, when he received the summons to explain to the powers that be, why he, a Theakstns landlord, was selling Wadworths. Fortunately the article also mentioned the White Bear and we all suggested that he pointed out the publicity they had got. It must have worked because he survived the interview.

Is it Neil Cutts who gets a mention in "The Card Song" on The Five Seasons?

Drat! I'll miss the Corvus Stout.

I just hope that Hook Norton provide something to cater to those of us who believe that good beer should be black!
