Seems like it's going to be a big day in Waitrose next Monday - as well as the Fuller's & Friends bottles, they're launching a watermelon Gose. This from the press release:

"Waitrose, in partnership with Thornbridge Brewery and Brew UK, has announced the winner of the 2017 Great British Homebrew Challenge – a watermelon-infused beer brewed by digital designer, Josh Smith.

"The Gose, a German style of beer, is named ‘Mr Smith Gose to…’ after the well-known 1939 Frank Capra ‘Mr Smith Goes to Washington’ and made with watermelon juice. It will be available in Waitrose shops from the 13th November.

"The Great British Homebrew Challenge, now in its fourth year, sets out to find the best home-brewed beer in the country. The winning recipe, chosen by a panel of experts including Thornbridge’s Head Brewer, Rob Lovatt, and Waitrose beer buyer, Sarah Hammond, is brewed by Thornbridge and sold at Waitrose shops across the country."

When is it due to open Glen? Is it down near GF and the cemetery on the Southam Rd?

Yes exactly right. I believe they are now due to open after the New Year, I think there has been problems.

Psyched for Josh winning this. He was one half of the Evening Brews blog which folks might remember from a few years ago.

Hate to be 'that guy' but all the pun beer names that require you to mentally mispronounce gose slightly annoy me. Quite low on the sliding scale of annoyance, but still

Same here. It suggests the punnist doesn't know how to say it properly.
