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 Tour And The Snowman

First things first, give yourself a pat on the back if you got the musical reference in the title – you’re my kind of person! As will be explained elsewhere my chosen destination last Saturday was Bromley and it was while checking out the logistics for the trip I discovered that there was a Wild In Art sculpture trail around the town, Walking With The […]

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, […]

Beer Guide London Visits 5 – West London

So after a remarkably restrained day on Saturday, and with a day off work on Monday, what better way to spend Sunday than to some of the more local revisits. My first destination was BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush, my favourite BD in London and conveniently reachable by bus from home. One of the reasons for heading here, asides from the need to revisit, was to collect […]

Beer Guide London Visits 3 – Blackhorse Beer Mile

Things are improving, not only did I set out this week with a plan but I had an actual itinerary. Don’t worry, this level of organisation won’t last. Indeed it nearly didn’t this week as once I told Jezza of my plans he immediately responded with, well as you’ll be there could you just pop in to… Enough of the preamble, on to the details. […]

Some Minor Housekeeping

I have amended my London Beer Guide posts such that if you now click on any photograph you will be taken to the relevant entry on the Beer Guide London website. Secondly, I have made the decision, mostly because I am a fool, that as well as visiting/revisiting all Guide entries I will also attempt to sample beers from as many of the c140 London […]

Rocking At The Southern Edge Of Europe

International travel is back, not quite as we remember it, but it is back. With the relaxing of the rules we decided to take a short break during half-term to test the waters. In order to enter Gibraltar you need to have booked a lateral flow test to be taken on arrival. In order to book this you need to have completed your passenger locator […]
