When asked how often his team change the draught options here, the barman casually replied that it depended on consumption: perhaps daily, perhaps every couple of days.
To say that this blue-fronted spot has Aechte Schlenkerle Rauchbier (a rare smoked variety from Bamberg), Jenlain, Meteor Pils and Grisette Fruits des Bois on tap will be old news by the time you read this, but that gives you an idea of what the type of beers that appear here.
The only guarantee, as advertised on a yellow sign above the bar, is that there’ll be ‘No crap on tap’. The tap brews, offered in third-of-a-pint measures for easy sampling, are merely the tip of a beery iceberg: as befits an operation run by the folk behind the Utobeer stall in Borough Market, there are also bottles galore from all corners of the world, an enticing selection sold at elevated prices. The room is tiny with few decorative distractions; a small covered courtyard provides extra shelter.
