    The only other 'news' is Plau are making noises about being ready to open soon. I won't hold my breath!
    Have you been to The Filling Factory yet?

    That isn't a shock given he was the main ale drinker in there. He sits near us at North End and I've seen him at a fair few away games this season, very rarely has he been sober.

    I have been once with the missus who wanted to check out the mobile cocktail van that visits every Friday. Very impressed with the setup they've got there. Three decent cask ales, two keg beers and Krombacher pils/weißbier. The landlord of the Moorbrook told me many craft breweries get their ale kegged there so they could potentially sell any number of beers. Will definitely be going back, maybe even this weekend.

    Absolutely and given the catalogue the landlord had when I made my only visit, Heineken are willing to let the cask side be free of tie.

    I've been a few times, I really like it, I was just wondering what you thought.

    Correct about the range of beers, the owner told me the same. He also has a licence that covers pretty much anything and was hoping to put on some sort of summer music event.
