Heading to London next month for a couple of nights, and need to find out the low down on its latest offerings.
Staying in Pimlico, and venturing to Lambeth and Soho and P Circus but not too far out. Spotted a couple of bars in Soho, but not sure what else is worth a visit.
Mostly looking for English versions of American (D)IPAs (American "Were-beer" in London), Kernel, Beavertown and Partizan(Any good??), what's the best supermarket to pick up a few crafts or is there any speciality shops in my area. I'm not looking for yee to do the research for me cos I know some of yee have good experience of london (Beernut).
Also Byron Burgers have craft beers anybody been there for food?
I think thats all..
If you're in Pimlico then cask pub and kitchen needs to be on the itinerary. I certainly second the bermondsey beer mile...drink kernel, Partizan and bbno (among others) at source. Plenty of brewdog bars to pick from and you should aim to get to one of the craft beer co places. dukes brew and Que your best chance for beavertown, food supposed to be great too but I've neverr Been
Offies wise London is still a little underrepresented. There's utobeer in borough market and the bottleshop recently opened Mr kernel. Sourced market at kings cross supposed to he good and brewdog oppened their first bottledog.
If you're in Soho and bored of London beer prices, The Red Lion is a nice Samuel Smith pub on Kingley Street, around the back of Hamley's. There won't be any US-style beer though.
+1 on Cask in Pimlico, and the same company also now has a branch of the Craft Beer Co. in Covent Garden. There's also The Holborn Whippet by Bloomsbury Square Gardens which should fit the bill, though I've not been.
