My first time here and I was staggered at just how many people were present. Mostly a young crowd, some were feigning interest in televised rugby union on a large outside screen. It was a job to squeeze through the crowds to the bar, where I found Brewmaster Ben in good form.
40FT - Black Rain5.00AcceptableFrom key-keg. A kettle-soured Stout. Quite stunningly sour – it even smelled sour. Whisper it, but I think it might have been too sour, and it was a bit of a chore to drink.
