Ah, perhaps the pump clip did have a ’NW’ kind of motif on it, I couldn’t really recognise what it was trying to be at the time. When I added Melody Maker yesterday, I based my "Williams" deduction 100% on data from untappd. So if it’s wrong, blame them!

As I suspected. And that untappd info seesm to come from one person who seemed the to think, for unspecified reasons, it’s Williams Bros. Anyway, out Scottish friends are on the case so, no doubt, they’ll get chapter & verse in the fullness of time.

According to their twitter feed, CraftCentric are definately New Wave brewed at Williams Bros. Possibly export only? I know Chris has a lot of business interests in Stockholm.

Thanks for the info. Do they say anything about if these are new beers or just re-branded already existing Williams Bros beers?

Best to treat them as separate entries unless & until we are 100% certain they are rebadges.
