Apparently this pub, nearly opposite Aldgate Tube Station, now houses one of London's newest breweries as was discussed, I think, on Twitter some weeks ago. So far, there isn't that much more to go on - unless you know differently of course - but I have heard nothing. When I was last in London, last week I noticed on my way back to Manchester, that it seemed to be in production. As it was before opening time though, I couldn't pop in to try it out. This is a pub I have been in a couple of times before, but never found it to be either conducive or welcoming and usually with three or four mainstream brown beers of similar strength in only average condition. It was therefore a shock to me to hear that a brewery has been added. Even more shocking I suppose is that they aren't whacking out a Courage Bestalike - if the photo which illustrates this blog post is anything to go by.

It would be nice to have a decent brewpub near my London flat and this would be, by some way, the nearest. You will see they seem to have started off with a Citra based beer. Well we shall see how it turns out and what the brewery is called officially, though if the photo is to be believed, it seems it is just "The Still and Star Brewpub". I suppose it does what it says on the tin.

I'll let you know how I get on.

I don't know why this is, but I'm not expecting great things here. I do hope I'm wrong.
