The dramatic weather conditions totally did for the February get-together, and so the next LAB meeting will take place on Monday 2nd March, from 6pm onwards at the Wenlock Arms. All new members welcome.
Pub map update
A few more pubs have been added to the googlemap at the bottom of this page, maybe not places you’d make the effort to get to if you are a visitor to London with only a little time, but for those who are in the area they are definitely worth a visit if you find yourself a little thirsty. The “must visit” pubs are now marked with their own special red marker. Feel free to recommend any others you feel should be added.
Upcoming beer festivals:
We’re spoiled for choice in the upcoming weeks with no less than 4 sizeable beer festivals taking place in the capital.
The Yorkshire Beer Festival at the Bricklayer’s Arms in Putney runs from Feb 26th to Mar 1st and is always an enjoyable affair, it even includes performances from a troop of Morris Dancers which is an unusual site in amongst the council blocks where the pub nestles.
The following week is the Pembury Tavern Beer Festival in Hackney, running from the 4th to the 8th of March.
Nice and central is the wonderful London Drinker Beer and Cider Festival held in Camden Town Hall (directly opposite St Pancras station), running from the 18th to 20th of March.
At the end of March, from the 26th – 29th is the Wandsworth Common Beer Festival, held in the Great Hall, The Royal Victoria Patriotic Building, London SW18 3SX. A newcomer to the London festival scene, it will be interesting to see what it has to offer.
See you on the 2nd.
