Anyone know where I can find some Belleville?

I bagged all 4 we have on site at Battersea BF & I’ve since seen some, or all, at Egham & Wansdsworth festivals. From their website it seems they have two more beers - Northcote Blonde & Spring Break - which I’ve not seen. I’ve never seen any Belleville beers in any pubs. From their Twitter feed it looks like bottles are available at Oddbins Clapham. Also, from Ed King’s ratings it seems he picked them up from a deli on Northcote Road. If you are looking for cask, Eagle Ale House is probably your best bet as it’s near the brewery.

Thanks, Chris. I found two tonight at Oddbins London Bridge - the Thames Surfer and the Bronwstone something.

Oddbins London Bridge is specialising in London brewery beers now according to the bloke I spoke to last time I was in there. I got a couple of good hauls of stuff last 2 times I’ve been in.

Spoke to Clapton hart today and they confirmed they had gas issues which stop them from serving the birthday choc mint stout (Leighton must have a way with words). They are going to put it back on today.

Thankfully it was a young woman with whom I spoke and, well, she really didn’t stand a chance once I turned on the charm. Had it been a dude, I’m not sure my winks and smiles would have had the same effect (but you never know!).

Also, glad to hear some more folks will have the chance to try the mint choc stout - it was a really nice beer.

Ryan - send your beer to west and central London - east is a right royal pain in the bollocks !!!

we are doing local deliveries today to 5 bells in wickingham (i think?), rose and crown in sandhurst and reading ale house. That is just standards though as the locals might not want a 11.4 choc mint stout.
