When Borough Market craft beer bar The Rake was told it wouldn't survive to see its first Christmas, even the owners must have had doubts it would last a mighty ten years.
Well, it has, and in order to mark the occasion appropriately, they're throwing a free party down the road at Borough Market's Market Hall next week.
There will be, as you can imagine, beers aplenty. The full list of brews curated by sommelier Melissa Cole is yet to be announced, but we have it on good authority you can look out for the likes of Cloudwater, Moor, Magic Rock, The Kernel and Gipsy Hill.
The Rake's tenth birthday party is on August 10, noon-5pm and 5.30pm-10pm, in the Market Hall on Borough High Street (entrance on Bedale Street) SE1 1TL. Entrance is free, but requires a wristband (two per person only) collected from The Rake or The Cage on or before August 8. Find out more here.
