Had a few glasses of Rafiki on Saturday. Was nice.

How was that Garden Brewery one? The Milkshake IPA they had in the Tooting branch was so nice.


#5362

Interesting. So “joining forces with” basically means “we now own”.


#5363

I’d have 1/3rd of all except 1/2/10


#5364

Not had it yet, I remembered someone (probably you) mentioning Garden Brewery, which is why I picked it up.

The Villages Rafiki was really nice.


#5365

Villages are lovely all round. Rafiki reminds me of Gamma Ray on a good day. GBOL.

v. surprised that AB-InBev didnt bid…

‘joins forces’ might be their way of maintaining the macro beer cellars at DH without compromising ‘punk ethic’ (DH is a big post work lager place, surely they wont be taking out things like hells or urquel pils…!)


#5367

Perfect for Punk then :smiley:


#5368

Can’t imagine BD would allow DH to keep stocking macros when they have their own alternatives (even if DH keeps its own branding for the time being). Surely that’s too much hypocrisy, even for BD?

The NM wild ale is spectacular, best sour I’ve ever had. Barely feels like a beer though, which may be a plus or minus depending on your taste.


#5371

Mate you need some lambics or gueuze in yr life


#5372


#5373

Those guys do Soup IPA right? That’s incredible


#5374

yep that’s the place. That was their Triangle session IPA, I also had a collab with Soma called Montessori which was awesome. In BeirCaB now, off to Mikkeller next…


#5375

might just stay in this part of town for 4 days


#5376

That place I mentioned is in the Gothic Quarter, definitely worth a visit.


#5377

that’s actually much closer to my hotel, will definitely hit that up in the next couple of days!


#5378

This Verdant Headband is delicious. Gutted I only bought one can.


#5379

Also featuring my new Fullers half pint glass that I got from the pub at the weekend (by asking rather than sneaking it out)


#5380

Just had that Garden Brewery one. It was great, I’ll have to keep an eye out for more of their beers.
