It’s Rooster’s Baby Faced Assassin for me.
100% Citra Hops.
Available in Morrisons or Waitrose.
And they’ve got a great Taproom in Harrogate.
Full disclosure - it’s my family brewery😹

Good point there too. I don’t tend to find the traditional breweries like moorehouses, Ilkley, Salt as appealing in comparison to some of the more newer breweries that have been referenced.

I would add Thornbridge to that list of breweries. Bad Co do an exclusive IPA for Asda, £1.25 a can or £12.00 for a box of 12; good beer, great value.

Cheaper to buy someone for £2 million and pay 40k per week than paying £10 million and £20k week based on a 3 year deal. Probably also better for cash flow.
