We arrived early for our 1700 Beer Masterclass appointment, the host was delayed so we were offered a Chaplin to pass the time. Very enjoyable session with our knowledgeable Czech host. I have not listed all the beers sampled, including a few bottled and keg dispense.

Thursday evening and absolutely rammed, although thinning out a little after 8:30.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Brewhouse and Kitchen (Islington) - Britton5.00GoodDescribed as an ‘American Brown Ale’ – it is certainly a decent enough Brown Ale but I’m not sure it has the hop presence to add the word American.
Brewhouse and Kitchen (Islington) - Spandau B4.00AcceptableSome pleasant hop flavours.
Brewhouse and Kitchen (Islington) - Myddleton3.60AcceptableA sweetish Blonde beer with a soft mouthfeel. In flat condition.

Busy from 6pm. Whilst we were here a young lady spectacularly and noisily fell off her stool, bringing down a whole table of drinks with her. She got up none the worse for the experience.

The pub is found in Islington, Central London, EC1V 1NG.

This pub was present by 1838 as the Blue Coat Boy, which, by the 1980s, was part of the Allied Breweries’ empire. It was demolished in around 1991 and a new, spacious replacement built at the foot of a new development around Angel tube station. The pub has since been through a number of names and themes, including as the Blue Angel. Relaunched in October 2014 as the Brewhouse and Kitchen, it is part of a chain of brewpubs of that name – the others being in Bristol, Dorchester, Portsmouth and London's Highbury. The brewery equipment here was previously in use at the short-lived Botanist Brewery in Kew. 8 handpumps.

We have visited this pub 21 times, seen 14 different beers and tried 12 of them.
