I went in here pretty much on spec and was very impressed. Very busy with roast dinner eaters at 4pm on Sunday and only a small number of us perverse enough to come in just for a beer or two.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Elusive - Sphere of Destiny (Pacific Gem) 4.40ExcellentGolden and crisp. Fully focussed on the Pacific Gem hops.
Elusive - Frenzy4.30GoodCloudy gold. A very soft mouthfeel and served a bit too warm. Fruity and bitter hop flavours.
London Beer Lab - Little Hopster3.80GoodA house beer for this pub. Hazy gold. Light and refreshing. Unusual hop flavours – I wondered even if it is a Green Hop beer.
Elusive - Swoop3.60AcceptableA clear, golden beer. Lightly hopped for a ‘Session IPA’.
Pig & Porter - Slave to the Money4.10Not Tried
Pig & Porter - Blackbird Dry Stout4.00Not Tried

The pub is found in Clapham, Greater London, SW4 7BZ.

Traditionally the Kings Head, this pub in Clapham Park Road was acquired by Antic after a string of unsuccessful theme-pub ventures. It then suddenly closed, in the way that sometimes happens to Antic pubs. It was relaunched as King & Co. in September 2014 and is now something of a champion of independent breweries. It is a mid-terrace pub in a residential area with a single room and patio seating at the front. There are six handpumps on the bar.

We have visited this pub once, seen 6 different beers and tried 4 of them.
