    Kentub rather than alehouse.

    Purity: Mad Goose-4.2%abv.Good allrounder.Blackberries. Surprised to find that Purity is a new brewery for me.
    Timothy Taylor: Golden Best.Always glad to sup this Pennine Light Mild.
    BOTW Mad Goose, if only for novelty's sake.

    Camden Town, Gospel Oak and local.

    Oakham JHB
    Disruption Arcadia
    Neptune Wooden Ships*
    Neptune Elizi*
    Vibrant Forest Summerlands*
    Wantsum Centennial
    Downlands Cosmia
    New Bristol Kennedy Lives*
    Elusive Destination IPA*
    Burning Sky Plateau*
    Pipeline Acid Trip*
    Beavertown Neck Oil
    Blue Moon Belgian White
    3 Locks West Coast IPA
    Werewolf Horror Show
    Werewolf Psycobilly*
    Siren Suspended In Camden Road Arms
    Marble Pint*
    Thornbridge Jaipur*

    The Destination IPA was nailed on most of the week, an eagerly awaited keg collab between craft giants Elusive, Burning Sky and The Kernel, but an absolutlely sensational pint of Marble Pint NBSS 4.5+ in The Southampton Arms , the best cask beer outlet in London currently IMO, takes BOTW.

    Bit of a wander to the Talpore at Tees Barrage, Chapel in Middlesbrough, followed by Play Brew taproom. Back to the Golden Smog in Stockton.

    Nothing was off-form but nothing decent enough to make me memorise the name either, in fact the only one I remember the name of was Doom Bar as the only option at the Barrage!

    So no winner...
