Sad news I heard on twitter was confirmed when I visited a supermarket recently: Special Brew has had its strength cut. And the cans have shrunk.
When the bastards brought in high strength beer duty Spesh proudly stood above all the other tramp juices that cut their strength and stuck to its guns at a glorious 9%. Originally brewed for when Winston Churchill (bad cess to him) visited Copenhagen I occasionally partook of its syrupy goodness myself. But no more. Next time I find myself going wild camping I'll have to track down some of the craft tramp juice that's now available in cans.
