Busy all seats taken so we nabbed a couple of stools and perched at the bar. Stuffy hermetically sealed atmosphere dissuaded staying for another pint unless there's air-con which I hadn't noticed otherwise it would be unbearable on a hot day.
Wilde Child - Razzle Dazzle4.40ExcellentMost welcome refreshingly chilled light bodied rasperry stout.

Early evening visit. My first here since the venue opened. Rather subdued lighting and found the beer choice difficult to read being in white ink on glass next to pumpclips. Obviously a friendly sort of place.
Moot Brew - Waystone3.80AcceptableMissed it was hazy, when ordering. Murky bland brew that could have been improved by more condition and mouthfeel. Did not enjoy
Only With Love - The O.G. Best Bitter4.20Not Tried
Elusive - Cityspace4.50Not TriedAdvertised as hazy so overlooked
Three Acre - Ruby Porter4.20Not Tried

Lynnes birthday so out for a pub crawl, procecco, pizza and beer. 4 beers on and rising prices here. One beer on at £6.80 a pint, one at £4. Big difference.
Siren Craft - Broken Dream Breakfast Stout6.50ExcellentVery nice. £4.80 a pint. 12 minutes wait to be served. One bloke couldn't cope here today.

Afternoon visit to the newly crowned local poty. Beers have gone up in price and were very cold, but a popular selection was on offer.
Thornbridge / Thornbridge Hall - Jaipur5.90GoodIce cold and £4.40 a pint. But enjoyable and flavoursome.
Titanic - Plum Porter4.90Good£4.20 and ice cold on a wet afternoon. Very nice despite the temperature. Of the beer not the cold day!
