Are they going down a storm?

Looks like Craft Beer Rising and Whole Foods are teaming up for some shenanigans next week:

Itís an interesting move from Whole Foods UK. I know that Whole Foods outlets in the US can have very good beer selections. Some stores even have bars. Whole Foods Kensingtonís had a growler station running for the last year or so. I donít think Iíve ever seen anyone using it. Will this event stir up interest in growlers? I doubt it.

I donít know what the culture in London (or England as a whole is) regarding growlers but some of the selections at the Whole Foods in the States are amazing. Iíve picked up some great beers for about half the cost of bottles - if you could even get them not on draft.

Thereís a new Fullerís beer on at Camden Town Brewery at Saturday as part of a blind tastingsí event. I donít think the CBR thing will have any ticks and it seems a more corporate affair.

Looks like Redchurch has a limited-run coffee IPA on tap at the brewery tonight.

In addition to the apricot pale ale and the recently-released Heavy Water, Dukeís also has a new 2.5% hoppy number called Pipsqueak available now on cask.
