Arrived in London

The travel was uneventful -- I missed the Delta meltdown by a day. After getting settled in our rooms, we headed out for a beer.

First stop was a new place for me, the Resting Hare. It is owned by the same folks as Euston Tap, Holborn Whippet, etc.

Decent beer list with 8 kegs and 4 cask...

Went with a local brew, Redemption Trinity, a tasty, hoppy 3% beer.

I learned later that their house Lager and Schwarzbier were brewed by the Anker brewery in Ochensfurt (near Würzburg) -- a brewery I visited on a bike tour in 2010. Have to come back for it.

Then it was over to the Euston Tap, one of my favorite places in London. They have 15 keg beers and 8 cask

When with the Orbit Neu Alt -- I visited the brewery the last time I was in London -- they specialize in German styles.

We noticed they had one beer both keg and cask so we decided to order a half pint of each. Tom ordered the cask but I when I ordered the keg version they said it had just kicked. So I had a Redemption Fellowship Porter. which I think I had here last time I was in London.

Then it was over to the Bree Louise for some food and a beer. They had a tap takeover from the Tring Brewery so I tried their Red Ride. A nice spicy rye character.

For a night cap we headed over to another new for me place, the Scottish Stores, just around the side of the Kings Cross station.

I was warned that the keg beers at the front bar weren't that interesting but to check out the side bar. There I saw an Orbit Citra Kellerbier. Couldn't pass that up.

I liked it but it was too much Citra for me, the last third was harder to finish than the first two thirds.

Jet lag kicked in so we called it a night.

Your blog is very informative. Eating mindfully has been very hard for people these days. It's all because of their busy schedules, work or lack of focus on themselves. As a student I must admit that I have not been eating mindfully but because of this I will start now. It could help me enjoy my food and time alone. Eating mindfully may help me be aware of healthy food and appreciating food.5 island near bangkok
