    Update: Pillars Brewery and Mother's Ruin are now on the site.

    I agree, I think Tiger is a decent brew. Everard is one of the old regionals I still have faith in. I've never tried Beacon or Beacon Hill as I believe they now call it.

    Thanks for the info.I hoped it would be a pub.With their limited opening hours these brewery taps are not easy for me to get to.There are 102 London brewers and I have had a beer from 94 of them so will have to try and get to Pillars.That £4 pint will be £5.50 in a pub. Wild Card -mild would be a massive tick as well.cheers john

    Was the Wild Card beer a cask or keg as I heard they have stopped casking beers just recently.

    It was cask and I imagine a one-off. I'm not surprised to hear that as they now have eight keg taps and that was the only one of their beers on cask. It was supposed to be a beer festival. I rarely go there as they always seem to have music on.

    Little Ox brewery Wipeout. A very pleasant 4.2% American Pale Ale.

    The default beer of choice last Tuesday in The Baum as Beer Nouveau were doing a Meet The Brewer and their beer was all crap.
