    I'll have to pop in next time I'm up there. I'm meeting this guy on saturday, but we're going to Highgate, so thanks for the reminder about The Wrestlers, I forgot that place was there.

    Details please!

    We need a decent pub in Brixton. The best one IMO is The Trinity but it's Youngs and therefore fucking expensive.

    thanks, yep that's the one - the bloke who owns the pub is very enthusiastic - loves his ale - come north and check out the Butchers or the Brownswood - it will give you an idea of what you're going to get

    You go to a pub that serves decent ale and choose to drink Stella?

    What were you drinking that night you were calling everyone 'babe?

    I'm betting this was before the conversion to a temple of Real Ale.

    can't remember, I think the evening started sharing a couple of bottles of wine and went pear shaped from there

    Try Adnams Explorer, citrus notes, fruity hoppiness - an ale designed to be served chilled (I know that sounds a bit wrong, but it works). Suffolk's often very good for pales ales.

    I've had that Adnams one, I think. In the pub in Paddington station. Maybe I'm thinking of Fuller's Discovery (after a quick google).

    Drank a lot of Buttcombe over the weekend in a shitty spoon and also the Prince of Wales in Highgate. One of my friends was having too much fun with the name when ordering it at the bar. It's a nice drop.

    Finally found a beer from my local-ish brewery, Redemption, at the weekend. Urban Dusk. Lovely autumn ale, but £3.75? :eek: That's Muswell Hill for you.

    Didn't stop us having two, though. Gorgeous.

    Until reciently my local pub was a Green King pub. They were limited on the beer they can sell. There was the ridiculous situation where they could not sell beer brewed in the village in the village pub! Now, thankfully, it's changed ownership and it's a free house. They have sold this beer:

    The beer takes its name from a railway bridge across the Thames! Here it is in all its glory.

    Doom Bar today. A reliable favourite.

    King Biscuit Time The highest British attention to the wrong detail.

    Doom Bar has popped up in a lot of pubs in Sheffield at the moment, so I've had a couple this week.

    My local is now a Thornbridge house though - so It's mainly been Brother Rabbit and Lord Marples these last few weeks.

    Had some lovely ales in Abergavenny over the weekend - The Reverend James and a session beer that sounded like Bachy.

    Now home and onto my favouritre beer as a youth - Marstons Pedigree.

    Doom Bar is going big in a lot of places now because Coors bought Sharp's. Hope they don't muck it up.

    My nearest decent pub is excellent for guests but one of the barmen in there is getting a bit above himself. When I walk in he actually stops serving whoever it is he is serving to tell me what he's got that I will like. On Sunday he said "None of these will suit you. How about a gin?"
    There's being friendly and helpful and then there's getting right on my bloody wick. Which is where he is now. If they didn't have a permanent Hobgoblin tap, I might be tempted to boycott the place. :D

    I drank some nice stuff in cornwall recently, a few by Sharps and one called Tinners brewed by St Austell, named after the Tinners Arms in Zennor where we were drinking
