After a hard day’s learning all about beer at Beer Academy we had worked up quite a thirst and strolled around the corner to The Draft House. They have cask ales, craft kegs and a very decent bottle selection. I started off with a pint of Windsor and Eton’s Magna Carta which was nicely spicy.
Next a few of us had Bostin’ Mild from the same stable.
We had a fine big table to sit around and we sampled some of the tasty pub grub. I tried one of the scotch eggs, it wasn’t cheap at four quid, but it was excellent.
Later on we tried poutine, boar sausages and mash and the burgers. The plates were all cleared!
Arbor’s MB Bomb was a great showcase for the Mandarin Bavaria hop.
I spotted Stone Arrogant Bastard on draft ( or draught if you prefer) so I had a third of that. My own personal Lupulin Shift means that I now find it pretty malty!
And I finished up with a half of Camden Ink, a lovely Irish style stout. This time last year I spent two days traipsing around some highly recommended pubs in London, this year I only went to one, but had a really good evening in it. So if you’re in London, check out The Draft House. Sláinte!
