Umm... sorry Dan, I don't actually _own_ Castlemain Perkins, I just took a photo of their building, ok?

However, I feel your pain. They do brew a decent drop (certainly superior to many of the other options out there), and if they've stopped producing your preferred variety I imagine that would have a terrible effect on your quality of life.

You could try the direct approach - XXXX is owned by Lion Nathan, their website is at so maybe if you complain to them they might consider making it again.

More likely though, your best bet is to look into brewing your own lager. From all reports, you can come up with some fantastic brews at home, and your options are wide open for many varieties of beer. You could probably find something that gets close to your favourite draught, and at a much more reasonable price, too.
