Utepils, usually referred to as the “the first drink of the year taken out of doors”, when the weather gets better and warmer after an extensive period of cabin fever. Though it is actually any beer enjoyed outside, at any time of the year, it is true that the first one of the season is a much anticipated ritual.
So, crap timing as you've just left, but could I get a couple While In London recs? Will be there for five days with (after plane tickets and hotel) not much fun-money. Staying right by the Victoria & Albert, and mostly planning to wander the city alternately drinking tea and beer. Any Must Drink/Eat/Sees? (Also, do you think there will be such a thing as a mellow pub on New Years?)
