  • Which breweries are open around Bermondsey on a Saturday nowadays? I've not been there for a few years (since we stopped playing Millwall) but I gather the Kernel at least is no longer active. I assume there are others that have cropped up though.

  • Route from 11am

    Fourpure - Eebria - Partizan - BBNo - Bottle Shop - Anspach & Hobday - Southwark

    Could also squeeze in Ubrew

  • Anyone got their mitts on the Cloudwater NW DIPA Citra yet?

  • The cloudwater IPA`s are tasty as ive tried a few of them now and are awesome other than that i tend to drink a lot of belgian beers like la chouffe pretty sure you can order them online aswell.

  • Will check it at barrell house after work Fri.

  • I second the Cloudwater IPAs -they did a double IPA around xmas time called the Big DIPA in collab with Magic Rock. It was ace!

  • Let me know what you think. Apparently We Brought Beer are gonna have it on tap in Clapham Junction and wondering whether it's worth the trip over on Saturday.

  • Cheers. A quick google was only throwing up stuff from a few years ago.

  • If you're pushed for time I'd leave out Eebria, Ubrew and Southwark. Not usually as good as the others.

    Details of what's on at Bottle Shop:

    As you probably know, it's the Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen (MBCC) this weekend. Sadly, not all of us can be there to enjoy the wonders. However, we've got the next best thing... ALL FOUR OF CLOUDWATER'S FESTIVAL SPECIALS.
    They've brewed one beer especially for each session and they've very kindly given us kegs of each.
    We'll be open from 3pm on Friday with the Yellow and Blue session kegs. Then on Saturday, when we open at 10am, we'll have the Red session keg pouring and at 3pm we will put on the Green session keg. What a treat!

    Yellow Session - 12/05/2017 - IIPA: This imperial IPA is all about the hops from aroma to aftertaste. Fermented with WLP001 for no yeast ester presentation and dry hopped with loads of Simcoe and Mosaic.

    Blue Session - 12/05/2017 - NW DIPA: This fruity DIPA, co-fermented with JW Lees and WLP4000 yeasts, is full of fruity esters and lots of hop aroma from Citra and Mosaic whirlpool addition hops. Massively dry-hopped with Citra BBC.

    Red Session - 13/05/2017 - NE DIPA: Esters produced by WLP4000 and hops dominate this DIPA. Mosaic added during the whirlpool and dry hopped with Citra and Mosaic.

    Green Session - 13/05/2017 - DIPL: In the first iteration of this Double India Pale Lager, Centennial takes the lead backed up by Simcoe and Chinook

  • In more Cloudwater news, the Bergamot Hopfenweisse is beautiful

  • Barrell house was closed (!) Confused as Track are a few units down so I piled in there thinking they'd just moved.

    Anyway, LOL had NW Dipa citra, it is much like the others in terms of appearance, lots of pineapple going on.

    Bergamot Hopfenweisse

    None at my LOL. [sadface.jpg]

    Hope Barrel house will reopen, I'm off twitter so out the loop on these things.

  • It's closed because they are all in Copenhagen I think

  • Ah ok, lucky for them. Guessing they'll be back open next Fri then.

  • When I stopped working behind the bar at Anspach and Hobday they gave me a 750ml bottle of 2015 The Brother Sean, a Belgian Stout. Got round to opening it tonight, it's incredible. Very rich, fruity almost red wine like but with a Belgian yeast finish. Yum.

  • End of workday beer.


  • ^ nice pic.

    Barrel House was open earlier, got a Bergamot Hopfen Weisse, very nice. Couple of cans for my Dad's birthday not sure he'd want the full 9% DIPA experience so stuck with lower numbers.

  • I have to admit that the last time I had an alcohol free beer was Kaliber, they've improved one hell of a lot since then!

    Let us know if you happen to try West Beer's 'Nix' wheat beer - Have heard it's very good.

  • I'll keep an eye out for it. Cheers!

  • I'm in Belgium, it is great. That is all.

  • I'm in Belgium, it is great. That is all.

    Did you meet Trump?

  • Clwb Tropicana when I got home
    Neck Oil now.

    Juice Box for tomorrow.

  • Woop! Local beer store is now doing take away growlers!

    So filled up with Cloudwater Seville Orange Sour and bought some other cheeky stuff.

  • Went to the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation fest. It's a great festival. Free to get in, table service and a free taxi to the train station at the end.
