Not really, it's less that 1½ pints and costs £20 :shock: :shock: :shock: also I tried these at the last convention and frankly they're not that good and certainly not worth £15 a pint which is what it works out at.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I think they are being aimed well and truly at the Discworld collector, who will buy it because it says "Discworld" on the label.

Or distant family members who can't think what else to do for a gift. It's a novelty and nothing more.

The early ones were pretty good, I wasn't impressed with the new ones

I remember at one point you could just buy the labels of the original ones.

I have soon of the spare labels somewhere, at the moment I'm lucky if I can find myself when I get out of bed. :lol:

Thanks for the feedback - we'll pass it onto the brewers who are always trying to improve the beers.

We're currently working on bringing back Nanny Ogg's Scumble, Invalids Restorative, Founders and Black Hogswatch along with Ridcullys revenge from the original recipes.

Also in development, an Assassins beer called "Taking the Dark" - a 10% Imperial Stout, Goblins Head Pub Root Beer (as featured in Snuff) and Old Blonk (as featured in Raising Steam.

And a really really exciting, and top secret project that will be amazing when it comes together.

Watch this space.

Paul,
You should bring them to Wincanton again to get feedback. Things have changed there in the past few years with regards to organisation and a couple of the pubs do guest ales (2 of which have been under new management for a few years now).

And maybe I can sell that last crate of Nanny Oggs back to you (minus most of it).


Regarding the new ones, the price has put me off. I understand why its priced that way but its incredibly expensive when you have to buy 2 (Drink me, keep me).
