Hi team. Just a few updates on London and beer. (Feel free to chime in with your own insights as you see fit.)

Looks like the Lovibonds Sour Grapes is on sale at the Earl of Essex for £15 a bottle. Pretty good deal, really.

Also, tried one of the Kernel barrel aged London Sours tonight. It should go on sale in the coming weeks. Fill your boots when you can.

Finally, apparently Rocky Head had a few new beers out, including an attempt at Belgian sour...

I like the idea of a London beer spotting thread. I think we touched on a lot of great points in a thread a few months back about how rough it is to be a beer fan in London these days. Maybe this will help ease some of the stress. I try to keep an eye out for London beer news and feel like I still miss loads of cool tappings etc.

Yep, see my post further down. There was Cantillon Cuvee Saint-Gilloise on keg at the Euston Tap today. I only happened to see it on the tap list at about 5. Hurried over there but alas it was all gone. Would be good to have eyes out there for this kind of stuff.

Yeah, NYC routinely has the ’beer about town’ thread and I like the idea. If it suits folks, let’s try to keep the thread going until it gets frozen (at which point we start another).

I’d like to see more bars do daily online/blog tap lists, like USA and Japan. Euston Tap do it and Holborn Whippet. It would get me in a lot more bars if I could see what was on before I went down.

Couldn’t agree more. Full daily tap lists would be amazing but even just tweeting when a new beer goes on would be a huge improvement.

+1. Love that the Euston Tap posts their tap list daily. If the Craft family wanted to take all of my money (instead of merely most of it), all they’d need to do is tweet their tap lists.

On another note, anyone know about a new pub opening in Soho next week called The Lyric? Seems to be a sister pub of the North Pole.

It’ll be great to have another stop when I head over to the Old Coffee House.

I gather there’s a new Draft House on Goodge Street.
