    Newcastle Brown Ale originally produced in Newcastle upon Tyne is now brewed by Heineken at the John Smiths Brewery in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire and also for export at the Zoeterwoude Brewery in the Netherlands.

    Always loved it years ago in the Strawberry Pub before and after St James' Park.

    Keith.

    Another aid to collisions at sea, was the Decca C chain. Never sailed with it but saw it on coastal ships and some meddi boats. A favorite collision point was close to pilot station off the Humber, and I beieve off the main European ports, and I believe off . It it can be invented then it can be misused.

    Correct Keith, long gone in Newcastle, firstly they moved to the Federation Brewery in Dunston which was the newest brewery in the UK opened in 1981 then that was closed after very short working life, I dont understand the logic as John Smiths was brewery was nowhere near the Fed for capacity etc.Must have been the bean counters making a calculation.

    Ha Ha Doc, you could be opening a whole new thread here, round these parts you had to specify what u wanted your black and tan made from; macky tan (mackeson) guinness tan, cream label tan (Watneys cream label my favourite tan) etc etc.

    Colin I found the Decca Navigator on the coast a very useful aid, especially as most of the smaller coasters (or even Everards and Comben Longstaffs larger vessels) didn't have radar, or gyro and trying to get a bearing with a magnetic compass on a bucking bronco didn't instill confidence in your reading, but it was a long time ago. Colliers were better as they were equipt much as deep sea vessels with the addition of Decca Navigator

    Using your eyeballs in gale force 8/9 on an open wing bridge in winter conditions certainly kept you awake, no comfortable warm enclosed bridges. I think that's why most of us old navigators have droopy eyelids, they kept the rain and snow out!
