More Monkey Business

No need to go thirsty in Thurstonland now that The Rose and Crown (map) has re-opened with Richard Billington from the Brass Monkey Brewery as licensee. It has 7 real ales - 3 Brass Monkey, 2 Summer Wine and Copper Dragon Golden Pippin as well as Tetleys. There's a plan to re-introduce food as soon as they can get the kitchen sorted out but in the meantime this is a most welcome new outlet for two of our excellent local breweries.

Also The Leggers Inn at Dewsbury's canal basin is turning round a couple of quality Monkeys at the moment with the stunning Son of Silverback (3.8%) and Capuchin (4.5%) on sale.
