SalvageHunters

Post by SalvageHunters » Wed Jan 11, 2017 11:26 am

Hey guys and girls

The new series of Salvage Hunters is coming to the Discovery Network and we are looking for old or closed down breweries that may have some hidden gems locked away. Our decorative antique dealer Drew Pritchard is a huge beer fan and a love of all things traditional British and he would jump through hoops to get access into one of the UK breweries.

My name is Will, one of the researchers at Cruve Media and I'm looking for any news, advice or information on all things brewery so I would really appreciate a poke in the right direction. Look forward to hearing from you

cheers

Had some Greene King brewed Hardy & Hansons last Summer. Have to say it was very good, can't say whether it was like the original. Fairly sure I had it at the GBBF around 1977 but that memory has not just faded but obliterated. :roll:

I do enjoy Salvage Hunters. I remember a few years back they visited Hook Norton brewery and then another brewery somewhere up Suffolk way. I wonder if they get free taster sessions when they visit these places. Sounds like a dream job to me!

If you want information on brewing history, I'd get in touch with Ron.

Can't even spell pendant; don't have to be clever to rip people off you just need someone who can't see it coming. :lol: Do remember you don't have to buy it.

I could be wrong but I believe as pendant = noun and pendent = adjective, then "Industrial Pendant" and "pendent light" is OK here. Any grammarian care to confirm?
