If you're in London on a Saturday, worth checking out the Kernel (not too far from the Rake). Not much to tour, but some great beers.

Depending on how mobile you want to be, there's also Meantime in Greenwich and a new craft beer pub called the Craft Beer Co near Farringdon.

We'll be all over - staying in Islington, plan on roving from Shoreditch to London Bridge to Kensington, and the SotD house is in Weston Park (N8) so I don't see why Greenwich would be a problem.

Oh, and I forgot. The Great British Beer Festival is at Earls Court while you're in town.

Was on our way to The Craft Beer Co but we never made it.  We did get to the Rake which was a good spot even if it was an expensive one to try out some American Beer.  Da Hehms in Soho (China Town) is not too bad.

I'd love to, but it all rather depends on whether I can organize a trip to London just to drink beer.....

Ah of course you can.

Re GBBF, my only concern is this:

Quote
Can children visit the event?
Yes, but children under the age of 18 years old must stay in the Family Room and be accompanied by at least one adult at all times.
It is free for children to attend.

We have a 1-year-old - it sounds like we can't tour the beer stalls together, and that one of us has to be locked down in the 'family room' - do you think we can slip through with a baby bjorn?
