track and cloudwater barrel store are right next to each other, so it’d tick two off in one go

i prefer track


#4782

At the Waterloo Tap. The Shindigger Everything’s Peachy is everything you’d hope for - lots of peach without tipping into too sweet.


#4783

Is that from last w/e Feb to first w/e March?


#4784

Never liked a peach beer. But there’s a new Northern Monk Patron’s Series one that sounds intriguing


#4785

Buxton’s Ring Your Mother (collab with Rooie Dop) is a fantastic beer. Most of their output is top notch but this beer I would make a special trip to buy, not really had anything else like it.


#4786

This is peachy without being too sweet,
which I like. Northern Monk might be my favourite brewery at the moment - got a can of Death in the fridge (supposed to be the veg rack but it’s full of beer at the mo) after having it on draft last weekend in Liverpool. Went down as smoothly as, I dunno… Harry Kane or Lamela :wink:.


#4787

Easily my favourite Brewery in the country atm


#4788

No just at the weekends so two separate trips weekends apart


#4789

A bit of an aside but when I went to Bournemouth last year unless I was looking in the wrong places it seemed bereft of craft bottle shops and bars …another world to, say, Brighton or Bristol… if anyone was thinking of starting their own (and I know rich-t isn’t) be worth considering…


#4790

Ah, that might be tricky for me (but fine for normals/civvies). When are you about? Fridays and Saturdays are work days for me…


#4791

Err Friday Sunday first weekend, sat-tues second one


#4792

Always like 60 million postcards and the goat and tricycle, and there’s the wight bear alehouse in southbourne, and there’s a micropub in Christchurch I think. The Saxon maybe.

Obviously there’s not a massive selection, bit Bournemouth does ok.


#4793

Do Beer Merchants Tap the first weekend, then on the second weekend do Beer Merchants Tap.

Don’t know if I mentioned, but I’m opening Beer Merchants Tap.


#4794

I’ll be staying in hackney wick for some of it at least so that was a given tbh :wink:

Do you have an opening date?


#4795

Had a Buxton x Omnipollo Yellow Belly Sundae last night whilst watching The Square. Delicious, but very potent. Like drinking wine.


#4796

Official opening is Feb 24th, with a bunch of test events starting from next Thursday.

This is the site as of an hour ago: it’s beginning to resemble an actual bar now.


#4797

Good night of boozing last night.

Highlight was the new North/Wylam/Track collab DIPA.

Love getting a growler at taking it somewhere BYOB


#4798

EEee exciting!


#4799

Yep! You probably can’t tell from that first photo, but we’ve built an integrated cheese fridge into the bar. :heart_eyes:

Amazing!
