It used to be all a miles cry from the consideration days of brewing in Gloucestershire, while so much cities might boast their very own neighborhood brewery, generating beers of personality. It’s tempting to be overly sentimental in regards to the closure of much-loved breweries reminiscent of Wintle’s wooded area Brewery of Mitcheldean, Tayler’s Cotswold Brewery of Northleach and so forth … yet there have been fiscal and social components that made such rationalisation inevitable.
