Borough Barrow Bitter

27 Nov

Great story behind this beer, brewed for Borough Markets 1000th anniversary. It’s name is much easier to write than it is to say (especially if you have had one or two I suspect)

I’m completely hooked

We unearthed this gem “Pate Moi” at Venn Street Market on Saturday. We sampled it on a chunk of fresh bread. On Sunday I spread it on warm toast, then today I had it melted onto a bowl of pasta. I am now completely addicted and have just finished the pot with a spoon.

Found this amazing shop on Saturday in Lower Marsh. http://www.greensmithsfood.co.uk
With the deception of Dr Who’s Tardis, it boasts a Butcher,(http://www.thegingerpig.co.uk) and a Baker (oldpostofficebakery.co.uk) and lots of other goodies including wines and a cafe.

After a break doing work necessary to pay the mortgage, today we rekindled our aim to discover all things produced, brewed, baked, smoked, blended and distilled in London. Where better to start than close to home with a G&T? http://www.sw4gin.comIMG_0566
