Stella weakens: Stella Artois has lowered its strength to 4.6%ABV. It had been reduced from 4.8%  and it’s not long ago it was 5.2%. AB Inbev says it is line with ‘Health and wellness trends’- nothing to do with reducing the duty bill which will not be passed on to the customers then? It will remain “reassuringly expensive”. One wag tweeted that he thought he had Covid as the taste of the beer was so insipid. Brewdog have done the same with their ‘Elvis Juice’ which started life at 7% but is down to 5.1% now.


Diary dates:  AJ’s Open Days – 25thSept. and 30thOctober and 27thNovember (1200-2200).  Black Country Arms Beer Festival on 28th-31st October.  Dudley Beer Festival on 25th-27th November @ Town Hall. CAMRA Regional Social @Barton Arms, Monday 27th December (no awards due to Covid, but there will still be speeches, I suppose)

Membership Renewals: All memberships will need to be renewed in the New Year, sorry if you feel  a bit ‘cheated’ that we haven’t done much for you this year, but things will eventually get better. Just ask Boris.

And finally:  Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Stay safe and healthy !
