This was the first of the Bermondsey beer mile breweries we visited and was probably one of the best of the day. This was most noticeably because it is one of the few along this stretch that brew cask ales as well as keg, but also because we got a brewery talk (you cannot really call it a tour when you stand in the middle of all the stainless steel equipment and get different bits pointed at ) by one of the founders of the brewery who, unlike a lot of these start ups, has several years working for big brewers under his belt, most noticeably Marstons, and could weave a yarn about the brewing industry.
All six hand pumps were in operating dispensing Barbe Rouge, Southwark Gold, Harvard American Pale Ale, Belaire Park, LPA London Pale Ale and something called I want Candy, this is apparently a collaboration brew with the Essex Street Brewery. The LPA was a decent beer and I also tried one of the keg stout offerings that was also available. Will certainly be paying a return visit to this one.

This is yet one more brewery along the Bermondsey mile. The interior is still as described by Pubsignman over three years ago, although I wouldn't say that the brewery operation is hidden at the back as it's openly visible for all to see. Also, there were no facilities for outside drinking, although of course smokers can be seen lounging around leaning against walls.

There were six ales on handpump during my Wednesday evening visit - Belair Park; Potter's Field Porter; London Pale Ale; Bermondsey Best; Rhode Island New England IPA; and Barbe Rouge Single Hop. This looked a good variety of styles. I had pints of the Rhode Island and the Porter (£4.20 a pint) and both were in excellent condition.

This is the only one of the Bermondsey mile breweries that I've visited, but I suspect that the the real ale selection makes it one of, if not the, best.

Last stop on the Beer Mile crawl and although not my favorite brewery there was some decent beer on, I settled for the Oatmeal Stout. Its typical bench and table seating inside although there was one sofa spotted. Worthy of a visit.
