Beer Guide London Visits 7 – Bromley & Bexleyheath

It turns out that while I was hunting down Snowmen in Bromley Jezza was updating the Guide entries for Bromley. Talk about good timing. It meant that, this week, I had confirmation from my first target that they would indeed be open at 12:00. And they were. Bromley had been chosen as I had seen reports the week before of a beer from Marlix Brewery […]

Beer Guide London Visits 6 – Brixton

These trips don’t always go to plan. The planned destination was Brixton, an area I love visiting. Lots of great places to visit in a relatively compact area. Checking before hand showed that two places opened at 11:00 meaning that it was possible to make an early start. Except that both of the 11:00 openers now open at 12:00. That’s why we do these trips, […]

Back In The Saddle Again

A while ago I arranged with Jeremy to go out on another Beer Guide London research trip, a chance to catch up, be sociable and drink lots of sparkling mineral water. In reality it was this date on my calendar that sowed the initial seed that led to my eventual decision to start drinking again. It was now going to be a “proper” research trip! […]

Right. Where Was I…?

This was always scheduled to be the next beer that I drank at home. I wasn’t quite anticipating the gap between this and the previous one! It’s a good beer, not amazing, but a good solid part of the Westmalle range, with the added bonus that the lower ABV means it is a great way of easing myself back in! Another bonus came in the […]
