There's a new brewery in town, adjacent to the Dove public house in St Helen's Street. Not surprisingly it's called The Dove Street Brewery which has been brewing since the beginning of August, initially with test brews. But since the recent Beer Festival four quality ales are on offer. Why mention this in a journal of some sobriety? The best tasting beer produced so far is Underwood Mild, named after our illustrious Vice-President, Peter Underwood, who was a regular in the pub when he lived in Vermont Crescent.
Ady Smith, landlord of the Dove and owner of the brewery said, "Peter is a good friend and loyal townsman. The beer is a dark traditional mild, full of flavour yet only 3.2% ABV, exactly as Peter likes."
