FAO UK Admins - Breweries/Places Housekeeping

It doesn’t matter which way you try and sign in. No Admin work can be done at present. Site is going to crap.

Actually Gan Yam are moving up north and waiting for planning applications to go through so currently not brewing full time as opposed to having closed entirely.

@mR_fr0g I understand your logic for the change, but the same could be said for a huge range of beers that have barrel aged versions.

Maybe we could add something to the description to explain that this is an annual barrel aged beer with varying ageing processes. Also make it clear the description is for the 2017 version and include descriptions of other versions with the year like the 2019 version which is on the link above. On Untappd the description is of the most recent version.

@Mr_Pink_152 and @mR_fr0g the same is true of other Cloudwater beers

https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/cloudwater-francois-biere-brut-white-wine-ba/573720/ and https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/cloudwater-saison-white-wine-ba/631162/ have exactly the same description but a slightly different ABV

Are these the same beers. have the same descriptions on Untappd but 2 entries. Not sure who entered the second on UT. Was it Cloudwater or another user?

I added a new Tenby beer earlier in the week. When I searched for ‘Tenby’ the brewery that came up was Harbwr Tenby. So added the beer incorrectly under this brewery:


Can I suggest that brewery name is changed to Harbwr (Tenby Harbour). If you look on their website they refer to themselves as Harbwr, with the reference to Tenby being more of an afterthought.

I added the beer under the correct brewery so the duplicate Chasing the Sun can be deleted.

@BlackHaddock has done the same same as me. He added this beer:


But should have rated this existing beer:


Admins were also confused as the two beers were verified.

Thought I’d post this here:

A couple of Changes in Cheshire

  1. Borough Arms has ceased brewing (I suspect the kit gave up the ghost !)
  2. Tantum are moving to an address near Nantwich (full details not known yet)

I was going to add a new brewery but looks likes the details for Beer Nouveau could just be updated. Temperance Street Brewery now operates from their brewery - basically members of the public pay to brew/have lessons on a commercial kit.

This micropub had only got one review (as it’s in Devizes that’s possibly not a surprise) but it’s actually a tap for Stealth Brewery:


This lot have been dissolved so presumably the brewery can be closed:



Magic Spells’ beers are contract brewed at Firestone (only trial brews are carried out at their London location):


Small things, but Brew in Ashby should be 6 taps and 100 bottles, not the other way around…


Also the Swan in Mountsorrel doesn’t seem to have a website. The advertised link is dead:


Finally, the Crown Inn in Stockport isn’t a brewpub (I asked). While one of the founders of Stockport brewery once ran the Crown (or something like that), it doesn’t seem to be affiliated with Stockport Brewery. Also they have fewer taps these days (I counted 11 cask/keg that could be designated as craft).


Edited as I somehow got the first link wrong…

Des de Moor has updated his list of London brewers without their own breweries aka client brewers (scroll down past the first set of breweries):


So updates on some breweries which are currently not down as client breweries and in other cases conformation of where beers are brewed. Part 1, as he’s not updated all the links yet:

The first thing I’ve spotted is that the details for Bloomsbury Brewery on Ratebeer are seemingly incorrect. The brewpub is no longer open… and did not reopen at any stage? The recent beers - such as Limitless Lager which I think I added - are from a seperate client brewer, Bloomsbury Drinks Company.


This lot are now client brewing at Brum Brewery:


Brewing at Bianca Rd:


This lot brew at Brew Buddies (so they collab with their contractors?):


Brew at Cameron’s (no longer Belguim). Should be down as a client brewer:


Brew at Brum Brewery:


Brew at Franklin’s:


I’ve closed the Borough Arms brewery down again. That has opened and closed more than enough!
When we get the new Tantum address I will move that over.

Just noticed that Laid Back brewerry in Haslington (Cheshire) isn’t listed in either Open or Closed breweries. I have a feeeling they aren’t brewing any more though.

Part 2:

Wolfpack brew at Greene Kinge:


WorkShy now brew at Kew:


Project 88 at Hop Kettle:


This place:

…is now the Fell Bar, owned by Fell Brewery:

… and seems to have been for about 3 years!

Not sure if it should be an edit to the existing place on RB, or a closure of the existing place & setting up of a new one? If it’s an edit, assume this is an admin jo? If it’s a close and new place, if one of the admins can close the Moo Bar, I’ll set up a new entry for the Fell Bar.

Nice place by the way, I’d recommend it!

Just noticed that Golden Eagle in Derby is still listed as a “brewpub”, though the brewery (Titan) is now closed, as already noted in the Breweries section

Not sure what to do with thia place: The Blue Glass in Bedford.


It’s changed location and now has a cafe-type seating area along with the shop (this has been updated), however they only sell two beers: Blue Glass Ale, a golden ale brewed by Brewhouse and Kitchen Bedford, and Mythos. They’ve decided to concentrate on wine likely because of Beerfly cornering the beer market.

Should we close or re-rate? I’m guessing the latter as it is still open and because of their house ale (which is almost certainly a standard B&K rebadged), but they are not a beer place anymore.

@jjsint I got address changed and updated from bottle shop to restaurant when i revisited in October. And updated my previous place rate and score (selection dropped to a 2). It’s a nice place run by nice people and worth a visit for the house beer (and better than most of the places below it in the Bedford league table imo!). Not sure about the rebadging though, he said it was an exclusive for them and nothing appears obviously the same from their core range listed on RB. NB - Photo needs to be updated on the site though.

On the main forum the feedback from Admins was that if places move or such like they should be closed and a new entry set up. Seems sensible to me - don’t want to look at old reviews and not spot updates.
