Mike Kerr 1980/1987 One very satisfied customer indeed on my first visit, drinking the finest and most memorable single pint in 51 years' experience of drinking cask beer, on a sunny 1980 Sunday at c.13.45 hrs. - hand pulled Wem Best Bitter, the only beer the landlord needed to sustain his reputation and livelihood. Tragic to put it mildly that Greenall Whitley saw fit to close the brewery in the Spring of 1988. Brewing and keeping beer that well is a dying art.
