3rd of December 2009 - Strong Drink

3rd of December 2009

Dear Sir/Madam,


The Portman Group is absolutely right but totally hypocritical in calling for Fraserburgh-based BrewDog's Tokyo Beer to be banned. Portman claims that excessive drinking is being encouraged because the labelling for this 18.2% ABV libation states that people must, from time to time, have excess, and adds: "This beer is for those times."

But when will we hear Portman attack the major players in the industry who make far stronger alcoholic beverages than this small brewery? Portman is financed by massive alcohol companies the sheer scale of whose manufacture of this toxic and harmful drug causes more misery than a tiny production run of some tar flavoured beverage sold to a small handful of incorrigible beardie weardie real ale addicts will ever do.
