Several of these beers have been available for a few months around London now in Euston Tap, Sourced Market and others and I was wondering what people thought of them? I was a bit put off with the big clear labels and weird brewery name, but having tried the lagers, I’m pretty impressed.

What do others think?

Most of the ones I’ve had have been fine enough, if nothing exceptional. Strangely, the butcher’s shop just down the road from my house has started selling them (and no other beer), including the All Day IPA which only has a couple of ratings and is currently in the stash awaiting tasting.

New Fullers seasonal doing the rounds - Brewers Bragg.

Just added it as a brown ale - would have added as an ESB having sampled it first but at just 3.9% opted for a brown.


saw it in the fishmarket in Bristol but didn’t get to it after the lure of single hop amarillo in Brewdog

Waltham Forest Brustival - Saturday 25 May
http://www.perfectpint.co.uk/beer-festival/1101/Waltham-Forest-BRSTIVAL

Essentially a Brupond event by the look of it but also with beers from East London Brewery and Wild Card (which I’ve not tried yet). Plus the very intriguing-sounding Gosnell’s Meadery

Shouldn’t be too difficult to combine this with a mosey round some of the other east London usual suspects if anyone’s interested.

The White Horse on Parsons Green is serving unfiltered Pilsner Urquell from the wood tonight from 1930.

Vintage pilsner is the next frontier in craft brewing. You heard it here first!

As I couldn’t make it last night, I called the pub earlier to see if any would still be available today. They’re all out, unfortunately. But the manager did tell me that from late June they’ll be serving unfiltered Urquell as a permanent fixture at their bar. They’ll be the only bar in the world outside of the Czech Republic that does this. Pretty cool stuff. Say what you want about the Pony, but they do pull the odd rabbit out of the hat.

In that case, I think ChrisO is well ahead of the curve!

Funny you should say that Leighton. Was recently sorting out some of the stash and came across a box of pilsners & the like purchased in the Czech Republic and Germany during and after RBESG Pilsen, which I think was 2008. Should be nicely matured by now. I shall, of course, continue to cellar them in optimal conditions until the next tasting.

I’m very excited about this. Less so about Chris’s stash.

Chris’s stash is OK so long as you’ve had a good amount prior to ’investigating’ the stash!
