The Fosters Fizz Factory at junction 12 of the M4 is to close in a
couple of years with the loss of 362 jobs. S&N say it's not viable
because chavs aren't drinking so much lager these days.
Local opinion is they're probably asset-stripping it for the sale price
of the site, same like Courage's owners did to its predecessor, the
former Simonds Brewery in Reading.
