    Kent:

    Only with Love-Tinker London Porter 4%abv. Being too young to have encountered London Porters in their prime,I can't really comment, but this is a delicious nostalgic (?) dark,roasty Porter.
    Mc Cann's-Evil Thieves IPA 5.1% abv. Spot -on Citrus led IPA. My BOTW, taken at McCanns Hop House

    Croxley Green and Clerkenwell.

    New River -- Twin Spring
    Tring -- Colley's Dog *
    Thornbridge -- Jaipur IPA (keg)
    St Austell -- Proper Job *
    Fuller's -- London Pride
    Signature Brew -- Roadie
    Timothy Taylor -- Landlord

    Some overlaps with Mr F:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening*
    Ascot Memoirs of a Geezer
    New River Twin Spring
    Tring Colley's Dog*
    Tring Kings Gambit*
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA (keg)
    Froth Blowers Barking Mad*
    Salcombe Island Street Porter*

    Thoroughly enjoyed the Summer Lightening, an old fave, but BOTW was Salcombe Island Street Porter a deep, rich, 5.9%, proper porter.

    Riverhead - Happy Valley.*
    Ossett - White Rat.
    Ossett - Voodoo.
    Mallinsons - Kocasco.
    Ashover - Alton.
    Cairngorm - Stag.
    Chin Chin - Two Little Ducks.
    Ossett - Galaxy.*
    Ossett - Jet.
    Fernandes - Citragen.
    Rat - Rat Street Kids.

    The Galaxy just pipped The Happy Valley, this week. Taken at Luis Bar @ Fernandes.
