I picked up some of the Pig and Porter "Black Pig" Their collab brew with Blackjack Brewery. I tried to buy it direct from the brewery as is my usual method, but they were out of stock, so had to track the last few bottles down to a shop in Whitstable.I had hoped to try the Gothic at the Dover Winter beer festival, unfortunately it wasn't on. Had to console myself with some greenjack Baltic trader instead. If you like dark strong beer try Gadds imperial Russian stout, its great. Gadds brewery shop is worth a visit if your near Ramsgate, doss very cheap takeout, anything from a couple of pints up to a barrel.
Sorry but there is only one bottled beer and I'm afraid that is Newcastle Brown Ale!Do they still brew maxim there ? I had a taste for it when I was on a YTS sceme in the 90's ! I used to like drinking the odd bottle of broon too until they moved it south of the river to Dunston and now its brewed in woolyback land, so its not proper dog now !As i am from Wearside. It has to be Double Maxim. Far better than Newcastle brown ale.
