    No-one has mentioned the Chopper yet; maybe proving generally elusive? Top of my (short) to-do list...

    Up to 33 now, and 3 of the ciders. Found some good ones recently and particularly liked the Odell 90 Shilling, the Caledonian Imperial Russian Stout and the Stone IPA. Favourite cider so far is the Black Dragon.

    A sucessful day in Bromley yesterday. Not only did the mighty Darts knock local rivals Cray Wanderers out of the FA Cup but the 2 'Spoons (1 only recently opened) helped me chalk up 8 new Festival ales between them, the pick being the Cossack Imperial Russian Stout that I thought I would hate but found it quite appetising and easy drinking for 6%. Now over the half way point at 26 but the 2 Dartford 'Spoons haven't had a visit from me this week so I'm expecting to clock up a few more today and quite a busy week next week so will be out and about with a few hours to kill in Central London. Target is to over the 40 mark by the end of the week.

    1 beer across the 2 local 'Spoons yesterday left me a bit despondent but the Lord Moon in Whitehall tonight have notched me up a further 6, Would have been 7 but one ran out. Faith restored and the Brewsters Armerican Chopper is a botw front runner!

    Another sucessful session across the 2 'Spoons in Victoria before going to last nights Spurs game. Another 7 ticked off - now just 11 to go and a couple of hours to kill around the West End tonight before heading off to see the Kaiser Chiefs in Kentish Town (wiill sadly forego my normal Southampton Arms pre Forum gig session but I will be there again next Tuesday for an Ash gig). Also managed to squeeze in my first cider last night when the ale options ran out!

    As most of you know I am not a dedicated real-aler but even I have broken double figures during the festival. Not bad for a lager lout !!

    Still plenty of festival ale on at the two Victoria 'spoons; Everards Whakatu was even 'coming soon'. Adnams American Style IPA slipped down very nicely indeed.
