Brewdog - good turn but on too long?

I had some of their beer once, I thought it was quite nice. It reminded me of staying at the in-laws, when I often drink more than I should of Rogue and Flying Dog and that kind of stuff. Anyway, it looks like they (Brewdog) are winding up the Portman group. Again. And again.

It's a bit sad that we can still get all worked up when someone with media skills and that pushes a strong beer. Wind us up and watch us go eh?

Brewdog had pretty much the same response, and said pretty much the same thing with the 14% Tokyo (without the asterix) last year. It could be the cynic in me but I can't help but feel there's some kind of symbiotic relationship here: both the obscure charity and the small brewery get column inches.

I think it's pretty clear that this is part of the BrewDog marketing strategy - and it works, see, I'm writing about them now - can't help myself. So far the PG have had them up for Speedball, Punk IPA, Riptide, Hop Rocker ... and Tokyo. Enough already.
