The Sloop Bitter Mystery
Mysteries have been revealed - except two. The first one I know better than
to ask about - I guess you'll never reveal just where the beer DOES come from at
the Sloop, if there's no cellar. The second one I'll ask: what actually is
"Sloop Bitter"? I mean, the simple answer is "very nice,
actually"; but which brewery produces it, and what's its "real"
name (in case I see it anywhere else!)? Back in '96, sitting in the Sloop's
Public Bar (look, I may be an Emmet, but that doesn't mean I want to be with
other Emmets!), I heard a local ask for a pint of "Sloop Bitter". So I
asked for one. Very nice. So it's what I've asked for ever since. But it just
occurred to me that it's probably not "really" called Sloop Bitter at
all. So what's the score, O Wise One [Vile Jelly 0

Alas and alack, that is information that I am unable to divulge.
Well, to be precise, unwilling to divulge.
You see, as I am an employee of the Dark Fortress it is much like being subject to the mafia 'omerta' code. It's not that I am particularly worried about waking up with a severed horse's head in my bed [he's slept with worse - Reporting Team], it's where they'd stuff the rest of it that gets my eyes watering!
All I can say about the source of the beer is that it's not in the pub and
all I can say about the Sloop Bitter is that it is supplied by a brewery with an
established name. And that may be more than I should divulge.
