I didn't know that but it doesn't surprise me. Another favourite from my student days was Younger's No 3 but that was dropped years ago AIUI. Successive governments have faffed about with legislation trying to reduce the power of the breweries etc but the big money just reorganises.
No 3 - I sorely miss that - one of the best dark beers in my opinion. Whitelocks in Leeds served a good pint of it.
Perhaps another reminder of your student days - a pic of the Leeds University Students' Union Bar in the 1960s, which IIRC was reputed to be the longest in the country (if not the Universe, or perhaps Leeds.)
