  1. That's what I heard also again from man in the pub gossip but seems legitimate to me.
  2. Word on the street now is that the filling station will be reopened as a spar shop and still sell fuel.
  3. I recently done a trip from Liverpool to Aberdeen and along the whole way the only places you can find cheaper fuel than we have on the island is supermarket's.
  4. When was the last Time you purchased a bit of coke? Your talking £100 for 0.7 /0.8 of a gram now. It's no wonder people take the risk to bring it to the island. In Liverpool it cost less then half that............ Or so a friend tells me.

    http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=48372&headline=Blow for Hooded Ram festival&sectionIs=news&searchyear=2019 I was just about to post the same
  7. It can only get worse from now anyway Mike cowbourne is head brewer now according to his social media account. Mind you likely be short lived with the current situation of Oddbins.
  8. I have been fortunate enough to go Inside this house. I must admit it's not to my taste at all but it is most definitely an incredible building. Every inch of the place is bespoke from light fittings to the lift. Also there is an incredible echo when standing in the main atrium. I can see why it's got such a high price tag.
  9. I have seen that job spec seems they want a lot from one person.
  10. The HR brewers are running okells thats the whole reason Dr Cowbourne has his knickers in a twist and walked out.
  11. Hooded ram is closed down indeed not sure what will happen with the pub and there tent at TT.
  12. I will just be happy to have more choice when it comes to nailing and screwing. Amongst the other things they have to offer.
  13. Seems screwfix are heading over to the island based on job adverts. https://services.gov.im/job-search/viewjob?Id=136674
  14. How can you be sure that it was from a new barrel ? Its likley there is still a lot of stock left that Mike and the old brewery team made.
  15. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/okells-bitter-changing-dramatically-already/
  16. I have been reading all this with interest and dilli and I are on the same wave length. Think there is most definitely some bitterness going on
  17. heading into port now after testing. I bet what ever they have done is temporary
  18. Well The Ben isn't in good health at all currently stuck on the dam thing with engine failure just outside heysham port having waited three hours on the dock for it to leave this morning.
  19. Ahh fair play I don't know may if his beers to be honest.
  20. Did he brew it? Some people say he had a load of stuff done in the UK for TT
  21. Rob story himself was in bushys this afternoon maybe looking for ideas.
  22. I have been working down at Bushys and it was absolutely mental on Friday and Saturday night. First time I have worked there and I can say it's amazing how hard everyone works not just on the bar but behind the scenes. Also I think it's brilliant that Martin mucks in and works just as hard as everyone else you wouldn't get the bosses of H&B or HR behind the bar and delivering stock.

    It would appear these lot at abort 67 now have people making calls on there behalf I have just received a call from this number 01422307578 and a quick Google Search reveled that others have had a call regarding abortion reform in the isle of man. https://who-called.co.uk/Number/01422307578
  24. Well I'm looking for a little 1.0 or 998cc for cheap tax only £54 and cheap to run but it's finding one that hasn't been raced around by a 16 year old that's hard.
  25. To be fair the only reason I like to use a dealer is so I can test drive a few and haggle like hell with them. Private sale are sometimes more hassle than they are worth.
