Quite late in the evening, but before the place is swamped by people coming out of the athletics meeting at the nearby Olympic Stadium.

Brief early evening visit. Not too busy despite a local athletics event. Keg beers here at amazingly rising prices, a Japanese one at £9.50pp and a 5.5% Arbor at £7.50. And people are buying!

Late-evening and the usual regulars are in.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Tap East - Steeleworks3.90ExcellentA reliably excellent Black IPA – or should I now be calling this kind of beer a ‘Cascadian Dark’?

Here for a big chunk of mid-evening. I actually left at one point, but returned when I realised just how torrential was the rain outside.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Turning Point - Avalon3.80ExcellentVery pale and very juicy.
Tap East - Tonic Ale3.00GoodI usually love this beer, but today I found the hops (HBC 431 in the current version of this beer) just a little bit harsh.
Pig & Porter - Chinook Porter Love Medicine6.00GoodA fruity, black Porter on key-keg dispense. Good flavours but suffered a little from flat condition.
Tap East - London Extra5.30AcceptableA return for this beer after three years absence from the bar. An amber-coloured, heavily malty beer. This pint a little too cloudy for comfort.

I introduced a friend from Yeovil to this place tonight, he was not previously aware of its existence and was very impressed. Time for a couple before catching our respective trains. There were three guest ales on in addition to the Tap East brews listed.
