Evening's first stop up from the station. Vast in size and the counter was heaving with orders. Several spillages noted in all the haste.

Elephant School (sub-brand of Brentwood) - Porter in a Storm4.90ExcellentIn good nick but more an end of session rather than start of session beer. Why doesn't Brentwood show the true brewing provenance on pump clips?

I came here with 6 or 7 CAMRA bods after a session at Billericay Lions Beer Festival and a look around Billericay Brewery. Nice that they were having a special focus here on a local-ish micro. Unfortunately it was one whose beers I donít personally much care for.
