Thus spake Eeyore.
There has been a long history of takeovers and buyouts, so that what appear to be different brands are in fact Marstons or Whitbreads, and choice of beer has been more limited than it has appeared - Fuller's or Gales'? Same difference? Plus it's one thing to supply your own pub (The Black Cat, The Foundry, Farriers Arms etc), quite another to scale up to supply several pubs or produce sufficient beer for TesMorrRoseBury's.
I don't know precisely what is going on with The Royal Tunbridge Wells Brewery, but a Facebook post this morning stated "the brewery is currently shut. I have several options for the future of the brewery which I am pursuing. Plans are to be back up and running in due course." I'm hoping that the brewery can continue.
The brewery is based in Tunbridge Wells (obviously - but Whitstable isn't in the Bubble) and started in 2010 as a collaboration between Simon Lewis and retired brewer Ian Dormon, from the previous Royal Tunbridge Wells brewery, closed 1983.
I've had a number of their beers - I think there was a green hop, but I've also had a Dipper (3.7%), a Royal (4.1%), a Beau (4.8%), a Helles (5%) and, most recently, a Golden Ticket (5%), I think my favourite. I hope they can continue in some form.
