This may mean very little to some of you but it means a lot to me.

I found out that Carlseberg are to stop Making Tetley's Dark Mild.

This will end a Pint that Me, My Dad and My Granddad have drank along with Many others.

The Fizzy Yellow Stuff kills another beer!

Until the 1950s, Mild was the largest selling ale. It retains some popularity in the West Midlands, Wales and North West England, but has been totally ousted by bitter and lager in the South of England. [2] In 2002 only 1.3% of beer sold in pubs was Mild[3]. Mild's popularity in Wales, in particular, persisted as a relatively low-alcohol, sweet drink for coal miners. Outside the United Kingdom, Mild is virtually unknown, with the exception of Old in New South Wales and some microbrewery recreations in North America and Scandinavia.

This makes me want to brew another mild! I shed a tear for you Orfy. Your Mild Mannered Ale has just moved up in my brew schedule.

I wonder why it is that fine dining grows in popularity, fine wines grow in popularity , but pale insipid beers (like Bud Select 55 ) keep becoming popular

Aggressive business. Targeting dumb (and I mean this not in an intelectual way) beer drinkers that fall for glitzy advertising, eye level display, and corporate weight. All about the dollar, and nothing about taste and history.
