    Only one night out this week

    Brown Cow - Empress of Britain
    White Rose - Ice Blonde
    Abbeydale - Faith Book
    Ironbridge - American Pale
    Ironbridge - West Coast IPA 48 Special
    Oakhams - Jesters Ferret
    Brewdog - Dead Pony Club(fizzy Craft keg)

    BOTW Ironbridge - West Coast IPA 48 Special , i have been really impressed with some of these experimental brews from Ironbridge all 4.8% hence the 48 special tag , several deserve to be brewed again

    I have now tried three of the Craft Keg beers in the Fighting Cocks and they have all tasted the same

    My problem with Loughborough is that having got in The Organ Grinder I would find it very difficult to leave.In the past I have visited the Tap and Mallet ,which I really liked. The Swan in the Rushes is worth a visit for the Castle Rock beers and I know there is a Steamin' Billy owned pub in town,although unvisited by me.The Albion on the canal towpath is charming but I havn't been in for years.There is also an Everards pub near the church.

    Will be going back to L'boro this Thursday with a different crew,but I only expect a one pub visit.However I am sure you could organise a decent crawl with a bit of discipline.
