The demolition of the Guinness Brewery at Acton in 2006 left me with mixed feelings. The loss of any building designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott was certainly a matter for regret; on the other hand the brewery's product was distinctly inferior to that brewed in Dublin. Hitherto, "Irish" Guinness was rarity in pubs, but it is now the only type available.
As they say, every cloud has a silver lining.
