An Evening Out In Brighton

Published: Jul 16th, 2009 | Author: The Beeralist

Most of my beer drinking takes place in London after work or occasionally in Woking where I live. But just now and again it’s worth getting away somewhere different for an evening. With a slightly earler departure from work and a bit of time invested on a train you can be in many interesting places. […]

Are Gale’s Beers Disappearing from the Capital?

Published: Jul 16th, 2009 | Author: The Beeralist

Why is it getting harder to find Gale’s HSB in London? 25 years ago when drinking in Fuller’s pubs in London I’d have been pleased to discover a pump with Chiswick, London Pride and ESB pumps at the bar. It was something special to find a pub that sold both Chiswick and ESB – not […]

Firkin Dogbolter

Published: Jul 7th, 2009 | Author: The Beeralist

Over on my old pub review site I put up a page many years ago about the demise of the Firkin chain – and the loss of the gorgeous Dogbolter which was a feature of all the Firkin pubs I used to visit. Originally the page was a rant about how Bass/Punch Taverns had taken […]

One of the pleasures of my regular trips to Kent is a visit to the Cask & Glass off licence in Tonbridge. Now there are many off licences a lot closer to where I live, but the Cask & Glass is a bit special in that it sells real ale from a cellar via handpumps. […]

Pride of Spitalfields, E1

Published: Jul 2nd, 2009 | Author: The Beeralist

I returned to the Pride of Spitalfields in Heneage Street E1 for lunch on Tuesday for the first time in a few months. It’s just off Brick Lane – reasonably close to where I work, but not exactly round the corner. Reassuringly nothing had changed in the intervening period – it’s still the same back […]
