I've just looked through the Meridian clip again and I'm a bit disappointed that, as in the article in The Times, the Conqueror is not mentioned by name. Perhaps I'm being over-sensitive but it looks like, once again, I have been part of an advert for somebody else's pub. I would also like to disassociate the Conqueror from the "No females" comment in the item. I am happy to number some of the nicest ladies in Thanet among my regulars and long may they continue to be so.


For anyone who missed the Meridian TV item on Micropubs last night, here's the url:

Beers on at the moment are Abigale Samphire, Hopdaemon Skrimshander and Windsor and Eton Conqueror.

The 7th Planet Thanet Beer Festival took place this weekend and was a resounding success. As someone who makes his living out of selling real ale, I'd like to say a big "thank you" to the organising committee and volunteers for raising the profile of our wonderful drink and providing people with such a diverse and well presented selection. Cheers guys!
