Come live in Ashford. 30 beers in one bar? I reckon I can get you 10 cask ales in the whole of the centre of Ashford. Maybe 12 on a really good night and half of those are in Wetherspoons.

Just, I canít believe you guys for complaining I simply canít.


Hold oop Ian.

Is that guys or Ken ?

I think itís been a build up for the last few months. Anyone who lives in or works in London or passes through on a twice or thrice weekly basis now has so much choice you canít fit it all in.

Imagine if you will you were from a foreign country and coming to London for the first time. How many days would you now have to set aside to get a decent round up of the pubs and breweries? 4 or 5 or 6? Even for a regular visitor, and you limited yourself to 4 beers per establishment, youíd still have a hard time doing it in less than a few days.

And yet people still find room to complain or point out limitations or find reasons not to be happy. Not to be happy in London drinking at the moment? Are people for real? I simply donít understand it. They should all be thanking their lucky stars.

Oh and of course, itís just pure jealousy.

Take last Monday as a for instance.

You had 19 Thornbridge beers at Islington Craft and a Stone takeover at Euston Tap. On a Monday night.

6 years ago, you couldnít even imagine something like that happening. Now itís almost as though people are blase about it.

Cheer up you miserable bastards!!!!!

The London scene is wonderfully vibrant but a Sq Mile bar is overdue in that context. Not apologising for being happy at the prospect of not using the Northern line. Itís very unpleasant in Rush hour when I mostly use it for beer travel. Thatís because I donít live in London btw.

Now Ian move your bed away from the window so the next time you get out of bed on the wrong side you donít end up in the trash below!

I sleep in a hammock so tend to just fall out of it in an ungainly manner.

When I were a lad I had to get up 2 hours before I finished drinking just to get back to the pub that was 38 miles away and downt an unmade road covered in snow in the height of summer. Then I had to brew me own beer like with cornflakes, water from the horse trough and stinging nettles I picked meself (no gloves) and it were all fermented with the farmers spit and he had halitosis.
