Brewdog/Brodies Tayberry Berliner is on keg today at all the BD bars from 7pm. Will possibly swing by Camden later even though it’ll probably be a shit show...

I haven’t been that impressed with the Draft Houses. Had a bad experience in the Calpham. It was almost St Patrick’s day so I asked for a Stout that wasn’t Guinness the the guy hands me a bottle of Swartzbeer. I ask him if it is indeed a swartzbeer and he looks at me blankly, ’A what?’. Anyways maybe a shouldn’t be so harsh, maybe it was the chaps first day, but If you work at a place that secialises in good beer the staff should at least know the differece. At least he got the colour right.

Camden Brewdog - take your ear muffs. The buggers who frequent that bar only seem capable of communicating with each by bellowing as loudly as possible. Not a fan of Camdenites!

Go to the Black Heart instead, Ken. It’s quiet there with no loud rock music at all.

Liberty sent one of Ryan’s beers to this new pub. Hope they get it right. That part of town really needs work apart from Brodie’s Old Coffee House. Actually that pub needs work.

The Harbour Aji Limon IPA on tap at the Euston Tap is worth the journey.

Also, can anyone confirm that The Lyric (in Soho) is opening tonight? The data isn’t working on my phone presently (awful service in my office) so I can’t check the Twitter. If this pub is opening tonight I’ll probably make a stop on my way home, in case anyone else wants to meet for a bevvie.

They haven’t got a clue.

East Dulwich Draft House have a permanent Kernel line which has had a Mosaic PA pumpclip on it for months because the staff can’t be bothered to change it. They never know which beer is on but it’s quite fun trying to guess the hops I suppose.

Last summer they served me a pint of Dark Star APA which was warm. When I pointed this I was told ’that’s because it’s cask, yeah?’.
