I went on a visit around Shippo's Brewery, late sixties. Each beer we tasted was superb. It was undrinkable in Shippo's pubs though !!. Sunk a lot of Home ales in the Grosvener up Mansfield road. It was always packed, great night but the beer always seemed watery. It was. Some draymen were flogging 50 galls to independent pubs and back-filling the tanker with water. I remember 3 people ended up arrested over it and given jail sentences.

At the end of the night , the Grosvener was a riot of sound as the crowd sang the Beatles "hey jude, na, na na nanan-na...........

Anyone else in those singalongs ?
