Cain's axe Dark Mild

Cain's, the major independent brewery in Liverpool, has dropped Dark Mild from its regular beer portfolio. It will become a seasonal beer, brewed mainly in May each year to coincide with CAMRA's Make May a Mild Month promotion.
This is disappointing news, as sales of mild nationally are showing a small amount of growth and many craft brewers have examples of the styles in their ranges. It's especially disappointing, as Cain's Dark Mild is a beer of some historic importance. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the Guinness stout sold on Merseyside, with its large Irish community, came from Dublin. In order to compete with Guinness and offer a cheaper alternative, brewers such as Cain's produced dark milds that had a roasted grain and bitter hop character that was radically different to the milds brewed elswehere in Britain.
Cain's Dark Mild will be replaced by Raisin Ale, which now becomes a regular member of the brewery's portfolio.

Real shame - I love the Dark Mild and being in London I don't get to drink it very often. However it's the one beer I always try to get a pint of at the GBBF.
