Might swing by on my way home from work.
Hmm. Would be rude not to
^^^just cos the Ed's promised to get his cock out
They have a funky new sign on the front of the pub:
Photos coming soon!
I hope you took a photo of all of the handpumps. It'll probably save me a lot of time tomorrow if I can decide now what I want and in what order.
Say hi to her, it's been a while
They have chairs and tables on the street outside now. And the inside looks nearly finished.
When I spoke to Yll, the landlord, he said he told the contractors the opening night was last week, to make them work quicker
When I looked yesterday there were no labels on the pumps...hopefully they have remedied that by now!
I've just been there and enjoyed some of the VERY splendid beers on offer. Photo report within the hour!
they had a preview!
It's looking mighty fine:
it's looking right good - a fine selection of Ale and Cider , looking forward to sampling some.
Looks excellent. Especially intriguing talk of pedestrianising the stub of Ingleton Street - that would be very nice
They had a moderately fizzy scrumpy that was indescribably moreish.
Keeping all those ales in top nick will need a first-rate cellarman as well as some thirsty people to keep the turnover high enough.
did they have their cider and black drink? - Mrs Muggins cider and black or something - that is lovely
noticed the Dark Star Hophead on the bar, that is a lovely pint
These guys know their stuff. They are fanatical about ale.
The only thing I've grumbled about in this bit of Brixton was the total lack of anywhere to go for either food or a drink. This looks like it will fill this hole nicely, plus if that pub is going to be busier and more bustling, that block shouldn't be so lecherously unpleasant to walk past at night. Can't wait to try it...
Looking great! Some really good beers on too, I see they've got Big Chief (the triangular badge with the red writing, it's my neighbours, Redemption Brewery) which is amazing, and the Kernel who are unbeatable, very rare to have any of Evin's beer on draught in a pub. Save me some!
Good selection, although I hope they get some beers from Red Willow in there soon. Their stuff is great.
football screens or no football screens - photos suggest the latter?
No football screens. No pub quizzes.
It's a proper pub.
That's very good to hear.
'Fraid I'm not allowed more than the occasional pint these days, but when I did drink it regularly, I usually found the best pints were to be had in pubs which kept just one or two beers, and that those with a big range of cask-conditioned ales often served up indifferent pints. The problem is that you've only got a day or two after a cask has dropped bright to sell it at its best.
I'll definitely pop up there for a pint soon though, even though I won't be able to make a habit of it.
One of the owners can recognise individual types of hops. He gets excited if you show him a picture of hops. That's the level of fanaticism we're talking about here.
Hmm, no signs of any soft furnishings at all. It's going to be noisy in there.
