An obvious labor of love, with all the good and bad implied by that description. Itís very small, only three tables inside and a few more on the deck, and pretty mundane decor-wise. But the selection, the knowledge, and the service all make it a must-visit. Free samples of every beer I expressed curiosity about, detailed descriptions of others, and passion for beer culture that comes through every step of the way.

I guess the beer range is similar to Utobeer, but you will want to drop by this place if in Southwark, would it only be for its convenient location. it really is a rather cozy place as well which feels good to be in. The cask selection also seems to be better than the pubs close-by, so really, unless youíre really limited on time, thereís no reason not to visit this place.

Small pub with two cask ales, both of which (Dark Star Hophead and Exe Valley Devon Summer) were on top form, and fridges packed full of a large range of beers. I Visited early in the day, so not much atmosphere but the staff were helpful. Prices of cask beers at £2.60 a pint seemed ok to me.

The only flaw for this little gem is its size and luck of munchies. Richard and Michael have worked dead hard to get this project going and with it being a stoneís throw from our flat with an amazing selection, we tend to overlook its shortcomings. The barman (and ever-changing barlady) are nice enough and ever helpful. Richard, Michael or extended company of beer geeks are usually on hand in the evening for proper expertise. If ever we want something special that isnít usually stocked in the fridge, a quick call or email ensures itíll be waiting for us when we get there. Nice rotation of special brews on cask as well. Itís like a second home for us.

In Borough Market, and its tiny. Work friends and I go here at lunch on a friday, when its suprisingly quiet. Good tap selection - I had a t IJ Turbock (£2.90 for a half pint, worth every penny) when I was last in. Lots of bottles, but they donít have everything thats on the menu. (it does say this at the bottom of each page, but still...) The barman is very friendly and will guide you through the stock. Its quiet well priced for london, which is a very expensive city, kids - typical bottle price is about £2.75 (jan 07, well thats what the beers weíve bought cost anyhow!). Again - this is the UK: most pubs wonít even have Leffe or Duvel so their bottle selection is very good. If you want a good bitter go else-where (Market Porter etc nearby), but if you like European bottled beers, this is as good as it gets in zone 1.

Two cask ales, a long list of bottles, lots of imports. The printed list is more of a wish list than what they actually have, but it is definitely worth visiting.

What a great place. Superb selection of beers from just about anywhere - will take me a few visits to get through those. Had a good chat with the guy behind the bar about his favourites. Will have to return at the start of the night rather than the end of it!

A small little pub located near Borough Market. Two rotating casks and around 4 or so foreign beers on tap. loads of stuff in the fridge. Belgian, German, and many other countries. Always something interesting on cask, which is probably my main motivation to go there. It is quite a new establishment, so it hasnít quite got the atmosphere yet, but it will come iím sure, decent place, could do with some more beery stuff on the walls or something to liven it up. Good loaction, near Borough Market, The Market Porter and many other decent little pubs.

Opened late summer 2006. Probably the best selection of imported beers of all London pubs. Small pub located near the Borough Market. The pub is linked to the Utobeer beer store (same owners?) which is located inside the Borough Market. A summer place as it only sits about 20 people inside. The patio can fit more but you get a parking log view. The beer selection is a subset of what you can find at Utobeer. Primarily a place for ďexoticĒ imported beer with a selection of over 100 bottles, mostly Belgian. As expected a bit pricy compared to drinking English micros in neighbourhood pubs. I had a Burton Empire Ale for 5.5 pounds (about 10 dollars). 4 to 6 rotating drafts which according to the menu will have stuff like St-Bernadus abt 12, Sierra Nevada, etc. Like Utobeer, this place is more interesting to London locals wanting to get out of the ordinary. Unless youíre a tourist sick of English beers. The opening hours were sun-mon : closed, tue-wed : 4pm-11pm, thur-fri : noon-11pm, sat : 9am-9pm. Keep in mind that it may change since the pub had only been opened for a few weeks when I was there (early September 2006).
