Good grief

The beer in question is called Taedonggang, after the Taedong River which runs through the capital, Pyongyang — but it can trace its roots to the Wiltshire town of Trowbridge, and the Usher’s Brewery that shut down in 2000 after 176 years in business.

To the surprise of the owners, they were approached by a group of North Koreans, who paid £1.5 million for the plant — and then shipped it to Pyongyang.

I mean, I used to like Ushers and all that, but it\’s a bloody long way to go for a pint of it.
