In reply to Dilligaf, you are correct and I am the other of the Two Fellas and I was founder of the CAMRA Isle of Man Beer and Cider Festival. Thanks for all the kind comments from MF members, they've

Most of what was brewed would have been low in alcohol - known as small beer. The whole family, even children would drink it. The brewing process made it safer to drink than plain water.

New micropub opening in Peel shortly. No spirits, no kids, no technology just space for a dozen people drinking ale in a tiny boozer.  

Just happened to be in Peel this evening.  Welcomed in for a chat and a peek, looking good.  Opening tomorrow, so I may well have to get Mrs X to drop me off.

Peel is a good spot for a night out nowadays now the nutjob population has been diluted a bit by the influx of fresh dna. Did go on the ghost tour there a few years back. The guy that took his job a bit seriously informed us that at one time there was about 130 pubs in peel. Quite staggering

I think those 'ghost tours' used to exaggerate things a bit too. Those boys were on to a good thing for a while there. Good luck to the micro-pub though. Just what we need and yet another reason for visiting Peel. I sense the Island picking up again in some ways.

I sense the same and from speaking to a few people who share similar thoughts. Which seems to fly in the face of a number of key indicators like a declining population and the downsizing of the finance sector.
