Happy Christmas HMRC We would really like to thank HMRC for taking over 53% of our takings (not profit, our takings) in December. We then have to pay suppliers and staff (regrettably!) which I'm sure will leave us with the square root of s*d all to enjoy Christmas with. And just for good measure they then fined us a further £1k for not ticking the correct box on one of their over complicated export forms (and then added VAT to that.......how can that be Value Added......????). How they sleep at night is beyond me - perhaps they will be the only ones to see Father Christmas because they will be awake worrying about all the small business's they have shafted over the festive period.......I guess not. Happy Christmas HMRC
Independence has won overall champion bottled beer of Great Britain @SIBA_BeerX last night. A Gold for Milk Stout too! We like this award!
Many many thanks to Fiona Beckett for the kind and informative words in the Guardian article below. Our 4% Fortitude is marching forward strongly and you will be seeing it all over Bristol during the festival season. BBF Milk Stout (released in 2006) is probably the biggest national award winning Milk Stout in the country and not just in Brizzle! Available from our online shop or straight from our tap room!! Link
