The Pear Cider has already been opened I'm afraid. Ruth had a glass and got a blinding headache immediately afterwards. Maybe coincidence but I haven't plucked up the courage to try it yet, so about 1.8 litres is still sitting in the fridge. I could always handbottle some for you!

Beavertown's Apricot Pale at 5% was released at Dukes yesterday on keg. Also Heavy Water as well but I think that's bottled.

Thanks Tommy. It looks like the Apricot Pale will be around all summer. I still haven't found the Heavy Water yet, but I gather City Beverage Co. (on Old Street) will have some.

I'll get my list for next week on Tuesday. If it's on that I'll let you know.

Apologies if this has already been mentioned, but this place has popped-up recently in south London: http://www.lateknightsbrewery.co.uk/1/post/2013/05/join-the-beer-rebellion.html

Following something I saw from Gazza saying Dark Star Hophead was back to its hoppy best I had some in The Harp in Chandos Place and can confirm that it is fucking spectacular. Beer of the day beating Partiazan Mild and Harveys SBB.

There's a Dark Star meet the brewer / tap takeover at Craft Islington on Monday so I'll be putting that to the test. Will be interesting to find out what changes the new brewing team have made.

Bottles from the super hip Oklahoman brewery Prairie Artisanal Ales have been spotted in the Earl Of Essex.
