Is providing detailed information on pubs possibly over-stretching us?
Things change rapidly, beers in pubs can change daily and sometime
quicker than that, we would need to maintain this data and I think it
would rapidly become stale. 

I feel that ather like was suggested for the similar hotel thread, there
are sites that specialise in this sort of detail. Maybe not big national
sites, but local ones. 

Would it not be better to include a link in the tags to such


However I do think that brewerys should be tagged, and there should be a
specific tag as many are also tourist attractions and thing do not
change so often. I have found one local brewery marked, I feel a project
coming on, but no specific tags.
