Ancient Briton makes the papers - yet again

Wow, Adrian and the team are on the go again, this time with a new inhouse beer.
This great article was in the ODT on Wed 22 Nov.  Check it out.

THE town of Naseby now has a brewery —its first in more than 100 years.
The little plant is in the Ancient Briton, the first hotel to be built in the goldmining settlement in 1863, and just along the road from where the Mt Ida Brewery was opened in 1870 and produced ales called XXX and XXXX.
Publican Adrian Hood and a mate, Zane Hemingway, started with a porter a few weeks ago and now have a cider as well on tap in the bar.
Zane is in the liquor industry, has experience of micro breweries, and makes 50 litres at a time.
The Ancient Briton, which doubled as a hospital in its early years, recently won a Taste Central award for alamb dish.
