    Steady as you go...

    Saltaire South Island
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA (B)
    Ascot Gold Cup
    3 Piers Manxman
    Silver Brewhouse Independence APA
    Wantsum Dynamo
    Gloucester Dockend Dark
    Triple fff Pressed Rat And Warthog
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Oakham OPA

    The Oakham beer was always going to win this weeks prize after sailing past the 3 pint test with ease in The Waggon & Horses on Saturday, That was until I tried the Gloucester Dockend Dark a stunningly good after work Porter this evening in The Alfred. BOTW.

    Happening to be in Central London on Saturday, and guessing that the whole city would have gone to the beach, I thought I would tackle some of the Bermondsey Beer Mile (knowing that a number of the small taprooms have yet to reopen).

    My hunch was right, and most of of the open places were pleasantly busy rather than crowded, and one of my stops was London Beer Factory's The Barrel Project.

    With about 20 different brews on offer - split between regulars from the brewery, barrel-aged specials from here, a guest from Hamerton and a Hawkes cider from almost next door - there was a huge range of choice.

    I ended up trying the Motueka Kaupeka 'dry-hopped mixed fermentation saison', an extraordinary drink for 4.5% that one could easily have mistaken for a heavily oaked 14% chardonnay, and at £6.40 for a schooner certainly not an everyday purchase.

    However, very memorable.

    The last time I did the "Beer Mile" The Barrel Project was closed for one reason or another and didn't exist on my first tour, somewhere I'm keen to try.

    Friday's crawl reintroduced me to Thornbridge. Five pints of their Crackendale in the Hope And Union were much appreciated in the 25 degrees.

    Variety still not what it was but a better week:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Abbeydale Deception*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening*
    Byatt's Phoenix Gold
    Everards Tiger
    Titanic Plum Porter*

    BOTW Abbeydale Deception. Perfect for a warm afternoon and easily went through the three pint test improving with each pint.

    A very quiet week

    Northern Monk -- Faith (c)
    BrewDog -- Punk IPA (c)
    Tring -- Fanny Ebbs Summer Ale *
    Harviestoun -- The Ivy Craft Lager (b)

    BOTW goes unsurprisingly to Tring Fanny Ebbs on very fine form in The Woodman,previously unreviewed and within walking distance of where I live.

    I dont normally rave about low ABV brown beer ,but this was very flavoursome for 3.8% with hints of honey and heather and helped reliquification in this heatwave darn sarf.

    Next week navigating due north up the Oxford and Coventry Canals to sample the delights of Cov and the jewel of the Anker Valley (AKA Tamworth)

    Kent:still very low profile.
    Cask: Gun-Project Babylon Pale Ale 4.6%abv. Bronze APA.Stone fruit.The dreadful heat detracted from this, even though it was served from a cooled tap room.
    Can (at home, via the 'fridge) Three Legs-Session IPA 4.8%.Hit the spot on an infernally hot Sunday. My BOTW.
