I have sampled more beer in the past 4 months than the rest of my life combined. I have visited all manor of pubs and enjoyed it all immensely. My first few weeks were spent sampling as many different varieties of beer as possible. After I while I settled in on a few favourites.
- Strongbow – a tasty cider that goes down smooth and packs a punch
- Kronenberg 1664 – a great beer and favourite with the people I usually drank with
- Carling – best selling beer in the UK (surprisingly owned by Molson’s)
- Magners – another cider, although not as good as Strongbow
- Carlsberg – a great Danish beer
- Fosters – Aussie beer that Kelsey fell in love with while in London
- Guinness – really heavy beer. I enjoyed it, but didn’t fall in love
- Stella – I hated it when I drank it in Waterloo, but I loved it here
- Badger Ale – Grrr! Not great, but came in an awesome pint glass I wanted to take home
- Abbot Ale – Kind of nasty
- Maple Leaf – Canadian themed pub that shows hockey games on Sunday nights. Visited with Kelsey & Jen.
- Grapes – Great smoke-free atmosphere. Try the fish & chips and bread-and-butter pudding. Visited with parents.
- Ship & Shovell Split into two buildings across an alleyway with drinkers spanning the gap. Visited with Adam & Ellen.
- Gun – No pub food here. Really expensive gourmet food instead. Visited with the guys from work, and work paid.
- Old Monk – A basement pub near Buckingham Palace. The booths in the back that are lit from the sidewalk above so you can see feet walking above. Visited with Kelsey & Jen.
