And I think they are happy to wallow in their ignorance; if they had any intention of becoming more informed, we would have seen them at the ICBCF (they were invited)[/quote:3s4s7rig]
Well there are a million things in the world I no nothing about and I am happy to remain ignorant of. Just because I know a little about beer doesn't mean I am naturally more curious. I know nothing of cars or clothes and everything from the letter b onward.
People are not going to suddenly decide they want to know everything about everything. The best chance they will know more about beer is if a giant super chain set up thirty locations with cheap beer to tempt people in. They might learn something about beer and get an interest just by hanging out in such a place.
Much better chance that that will effect people then anything I have ever done to persuade people to be interested in beer.

the difference is that you are not on radio espousing your "view" on the things you know nothing about.
I agree with wayneibs. They are soulless. Only a few spoons in Scotland play music. They have large tv's showing Sky sports new, but no sound. maybe that's one reason why they can charge so little for beer. Between £1.70 &2.50, depend on which pub you go to.
I think the novality of spoons, with the real craft drinker may wear off, because of the soulless poor quality or the ale.
Where I stay, in Hamilton, Spoon's had planned to open a pub in a old variety hall several years ago. The local licence board (via the the owner of the local big discothèque) were against it. Because of the 'cheap booze encouraging binge drinking'. Then what happened, the owner of the discothèque was in talks with Spoons, about renting them space in their complex. All in the name of money (In my view)
