I tried one of Thwaites' new beers at the weekend. They've spent some money overhauling their seasonal range and designed some pretty natty pump clips which will attract attention at the bar.
The first one to be brewed is OBJ. This is a name that had a good reputation in bygone years and was used by other breweries in Lancashire as well if I'm not mistaken. Please feel free to enlighten me. It is a strong, darkish, warming brew which I'll certainly look out for in future.
Thwaites' have installed a line for bottle conditioning also, which is a move to be applauded. 'Old Dan' has been produced as a trial run and I hope to sample that soon.
