GREENWICH: THE OLD BREWERY

September 4th, 2012 | Posted by The Booyah Cook in London | Restaurant - (0 Comments)

This post is long overdue but I thought in view of all the Madrid information I should be posting some stuff about London again.

About a year and a half ago, Anthony and I spent the weekend in Greenwich so we could visit both The Greenwich Union and the “parent” place, The Old Brewery for dinner. For those who don’t know, Meantime is British brewery based in Greenwich. I am sure that a lot of you have seen their beer in the supermarkets and a lot of different cafes and restaurants.

The menu has different beers from the brewery matched, the service in the restaurant was amazing and the staff knowledgeable about the beer, how each is made. Also about the food.

It must be about time to go back there again.

LONDON: MASON & TAYLOR

September 3rd, 2012 | Posted by The Booyah Cook in London | Restaurant - (0 Comments)

MASON AND TAYLOR ARE NOW CLOSED AND BREW DOG ARE TAKING OVER. :(

 

 

The first time I went to Mason & Taylor, Anthony and I had a row because he was driving, I was starving, he didn’t want to go to a place where he couldn’t drink beer freely if he wanted because he was driving. Anyway sulks over, we went it and it was really great.

I can’t pretend I know loads about beer. What I do know I know from Anthony. Although now I can list a few places to go if some of your friends are really into beer and some of your friends aren’t or are curious to taste different types. All the beer stocked is from independent breweries from around the world – but having said that, many of the beers are local.

Mason & Taylor is the first place I drank Marble Ginger – which in my opinion is the best alcoholic ginger beer. After that is a Tesco’s brand one actually that’s good. But what is really good at Mason & Taylor is that you can get a flight – three thirds of beer from those on tap and have a little taste session. Equally, they will let you have a little taster before you order a whole pint of something.

They also do decent food as you would expect any pub these days would do. But the best thing about it is the variety of beers.
