Big brewers – think smaller!

In a victory for people power over idiot companies pushing their own versions of “globalisation”, the good people of Lewes (England) have had their locally brewed beer put back in the pumps of their local pub…

What began as a walkout by regular drinkers, and then turned into a campaign uniting the residents of a rural Sussex town against the might of one of Britain’s biggest breweries, has finally ended.

Drinkers at the Lewes Arms were furious when the pub’s owners, Greene King Brewery, decided to pull the locally brewed Harveys Best Bitter from the pumps last year in favour of its own beer.
