    Yes - I went on a tour of the Black Sheep brewery and we got tasters of lots of the ales. All good IMO.

    before you try too many from Black sheep, keep in mind that the name Riggwelter
    is supposed to come from the Old Norse, rigg-back and velte ??? to overturn. When a sheep is on its back and cannot get up without help, local Yorkshire dialect says it is rigged or riggwelted. The ale can have the same effect.

    Director's is still about. It is a bit variable on quality - it needs to be looked after properly.

    First post here amd nothing to do with Hi-Fi!

    Don't really have a favourite but supped quite a bit of Kelham Island Ammarilo Gold recently.

    Lovely stuff.

    Lots of folk raving about the Jaipur but have to say I wan't that keen. Probably too refined for my amateur buds.
