It's so good to see the city one grew up in remind the world that good beer is made there.  Even though I no longer live in London (I left about a decade ago), London Pride and ESB remain comfort beers that I go back to time and time again.

Very interesting! Also shocking to see Young's Brewery gutted and basically brewing on a homebrew scale. If they are actually brewing.

I'd love to be in London right now. Sadly, when I spent my various times there I was a wee lad.

I had heard the Ram Brewery was setting, empty, awaiting the developers.  The economic crisis put that on hold due to lack of funding.  Glad to see some brewing is going on, even on a small cobbled together system.
