Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A first review of the pub from Roger Protz, super pub expert.

Protz on Beer - Roger Protz - Mark Dodds is back pulling pints

Mark Dodds is living proof that you can't keep a good publican down. If you'd lost your pub and livelihood and been declared bankrupt you might throw in the towel. But he's just re-opened a "failed pub" and is happily pulling pints once more.

Mark is one of the great pub campaigners. His experience at the hands of giant pubcos has turned him into their most vociferous critic and the Twittersphere is emblazoned almost every day with the latest attack by J Mark Dodds.

His brush with the pubcos took place in Camberwell in London but I met him some 350 miles north in the border town of Berwick-on-Tweed. It was good of him to see me at 10 in the morning as the Brown Bear had only opened the previous night and he was understandably exhausted.

But he has a tale to tell,....

tbh I don't understand why Mark even wasted his time talking to Molson Coors or Carlsberg, but he is a traditionalist and that means crappy fake eurofizz and mas produced crap beer for the masses. thank goodness it fell through and he's got decent products instead

keep to the Fen Causeway
