This Week In London #35 - Great British Boozer

Pubs! Yay! Boozers! I'll have half! Yeah right - I'll get you the top half..

Greetings all and I'm really happy to be releasing this, the 35th This Week In London. Today I'm covering the Great British Boozer. Lots of stuff to talk about and stay tuned after the end for a special.

Listen to it here

No mention of the British Boozer would be complete without a mention of CAMRA, the Campaign For Real Ale. Camra has been around since 1971 and I've been attending beer festivals organised by them for some years. The Catford Beer Festival is a particular favourite.

Here's a decent summation of the various types of beer. Lager is noticeable by its absence (!)

Finally here is the list of pubs with special things going for them.

Da Moozik
Three Blind Mice - Watchstar
Amplifico - Logic Kills The Fire 
Keith Varon - Intoxicated

Hope you enjoy the show!

HMS Belfast will be next. Probably.
