    Steve, In your show today you said that Ward's bitter is brewed in Sunderland. The Ward's brewery in
    Sheffield closed and shortly afterwards the Vaux brewery in Sunderland closed as well. Ward's is now
    brewed in STOCKPORT (see below) Best Regards,

    OK, here is the gen on the new Wards.

    A new company, the Double Maxim Brewing Co (based in Sunderland), which also has a new subsidiary
    company, Wards Brewing Co, has been set up by a couple of former Vaux directors (Vaux are the ones
    that used to own Wards before they decided to close it down).

    This new company has launched a new bottled Wards Best Bitter, which uses more or less the same
    recipe as the old Wards Bitter, except it is brewed to a stronger ABV to reflect the premium beer
    market that bottled beers tend to be sold in.

    However providing sales of the bottled stuff go well, they are talking of launching a draught cask
    conditioned version next year, which will have a lower strength, nearer the old stuff.

    The new Wards beer is not actually brewed in Sheffield, as the brewing is contracted out to
    Robinson's of Stockport, and with beer the local water tends to affect the taste. However if the
    venture is successful who knows - maybe they might invest in building their own brewery in
    Sheffield? We can only hope.

    One may usually cancel one's own posts. Using OE: select the message, and choose 'Cancel message'
    from the 'Message' menu.

    Forged cancels have been so common for years that many systems ignore them though, so you have to be
    quick and/or lucky to cancel it on your local system before anywhere else gets the article.
