I have to say it does sound impressive, but how will my home city respond to this usurpation of the crown it has claimed for a number of years? At a guess, not lying down; if I hear anything, I'll let you know.
As an aside, I've occasionally wondered whether Southport, where I now live, should claim the title of seaside real ale capital of the UK? I have visited many seaside towns, both for union conferences and for leisure, and in my experience there would be some justification in the claim. However, I'm not sure that the local CAMRA branch would be willing to adopt a title that the Liverpool branch might interpret as a challenge, or a send-up.
