Did I ever mention that I was in Minder?

Sad to hear that news. Soon only a handful of corporations will own everything. Oh, wait...

Could be worse, if it had been sold to a British brewer, then they would shut the brewery straight away and run everything through an existing site. Youngs' brewing was moved to Charles Wells in Bedford, then they were taken over by Marstons and everything went to Burton. Asahi are probably decent long-term owners. They've said that the Griffin Brewery will stay open (though no promises how long obviously), and they will try to get behind at least some of the brands. As they already owned Meantime, and Fullers owned Dark Star, I'd be more concerned about their breweries.

I read that beer has been brewed at the Chiswick site since 1654. Brave move to start brewing during the rule of the puritan Major Generals!

Fullers of course took over Gales and Dark Star. I imagine those two names will disappear. I wonder about the future of the brewery. Although next to the A4, it's also on the river in what was Old Chiswick. There are houses worth several millions there - I fear the brewery will be closed and turned into posh flats.

Dark Star are one of my favourite breweries, so I'll be very sad if they go downhill. Not that fussed about Fullers' beers, but sad to see a famous London name sold to an overseas corp.

That's an encouraging take on it Sheen. I go past the Griffin Brewery every day - love the brickwork and the smell of the place. This time of year the steam coming out of the chimney (is it steam? Actually I have no idea what it is...) often produces quite dramatic effects at sunset. Popping into the George and Devonshire for a couple of sneaky pints in a big armchair on the way home... Basically that brewery is responsible for an alarming proportion of my quality of life so don't fcuk about with it please nice Japanese businessmen...

Fullers do some very good beers but not always available. The delightful London Porter is rare, ESB is only available in some of their pubs and Chiswick, a nice low gravity beer has been dropped to make way for seasonal beers. As has already been mentioned, look what happened to Youngs when they sold the brewing side of the business - once proud ales like Youngs Special reduced to bland, characterless travesties.

Sadly I think you're right. Like Bklyn, love the smell that comes from the Chiswick brewery, not least because it brings back fond memories of childhood walking long Chiswick Mall with my granddad, up to the band stands on Duke's Meadows and Barnes Bridge. An iconic brewery, I fear it will soon go the way of so much else we have treasured.

You can thank Margaret Thatcher for opening up the flood gates to foreign acquisitions of British businesses.

You can thank Brexit for depreciating the pound and making it significantly cheaper for other nations to buy British companies.

Do British people own any of the big companies in this country? Power plants, railway companies, London real estate, Pret, Costa, Manchester United... its all foreign owned.

Same here, I go past it everyday as I go down the A316 (and vice versa in the morning).

Really hope it doesn't get demolished for flats, not every piece of land can be residential but that's where the money is. I just hope that somehow it's listed or if not would be protected by the council.

My mistake. Youngs sold their brewing to Charles Wells so they could redevelop the Wandsworth site. Charles Wells then sold their brewing to Marstons, but they have kept Bedford open. It's amazing how many old names are now owned by Marstons - Breakspear, Courage, Youngs, McEwans, Mansfield, Banks.

Yeah, I reckon. Keeping the old exterior and a micro-brewery on site. London's most iconic stadium! Win win.

I absolutely love that idea. A bang up to date modern stadium that is a few hundred years old. That would be such a QPR thing to do.
