If you are a fan of good American beer, this place sells many kinds in
bottles and has a couple on draught:
Also most of the usual Belgian suspects. Nice place, but not cheap.
Personally I find US microbrews tend to be too bitter and dry. I remember
asking them why they had so many US specialty beers and so few British. He
said it was simply because US breweries were willing to ship him a crate
or two a month, and UK breweries weren't able or interested to handle
orders that small. Pathetic.
Does anyone know why UK breweries seem incapable of decent distribution?
