|Market Drayton's unholy trinity|
For younger readers, "Joule's" was a 200-year old brewery in Stone (its defunct brewery still backs onto the Trent & Mersey Canal) that was closed by Bass Charrington in 1974. Ironically, "Bass Charrington" has now ceased to exist - being absorbed into an American conglomerate and it's once-flagship beer "Draught Bass" being brewed in minute quantities by a once-rival brewer. Joule's however has been resurrected by a group of enthusiasts (who are also hard-headed businessmen) that has bought the rights to the name and the original recipies and is now re-creating them in a purpose-built brewery in Market Drayton.
