Happy to report that the beer situation seems to have improved lately, with at least 6 beers on from 2 or more breweries. A lot from Arundel in particular. They seem to be better stocked at weekends, and I believe another beer festival is imminent!

The Bricklayers Arms, Putney

I think you've missed the point. We love this pub too and we are concerned by the recent trend for hardly having any beer on. When you go into a pub that you've enjoyed for several years and find that only 1 of 12 pumps are serving beer, you do ask questions. Several other people have noticed similar occurences and so they have posted independent comments too. This isn't a case of us all forming a "pernickity" gang of beerhunters. As for the comment about "change...ooooh change", this says far more about you than it does about us. You are using the idea of an irrational fear of change as a one-size -fits-all statement to extinguish any discussion about the actual issue in question, namely the loss of choice at this pub. Would you apply the same comment to the wholesale destruction of pub culture that is occuring across the UK? I realize I'm probably falling for the bait here, but after a while these intellectually lazy comments get to me. "Top place" - I agree, but for how much longer? I am pleased however at the good choice one of the previous posters experienced recently.

Yes, things do "change", but there is a difference between "changing" & "vanishing" Make sure you know what you mean next time.

I'm off now to get over myself

"Average" is the word you're looking for...?
