Signs of London, streets of London, quite an experience. Even when (or because) they beat everybody. After walking dozens of miles every day I can only confirm it, it’s all fully worthy the sore toes. You know what, Chuck Taylors are NOT made for walking - their nice looking rounded toe caps do not match at all my foot shape. Ouch and more ouch. Still, it was fun to check all those peculiar old and new streets and see what they have to tell you, be they Downing Street or Scotland Yard. And if you’re looking for a sign… you’ll find a beer at the Dean Swift, not far from the Tower Bridge. Friendly they are indeed, the staff there, but not all seasoned in beers and what a “wild beer” is… so just be stubborn, repeat your funny accented request (if you’re a foreigner like me) and you’ll get it at the end: a Madness IPA from the Brits of Wild Beer. Yeap, scorching citrus hops and solid malts it is, so just grab a plate of fish’n’chips with it, you know mashed peas and all that, and your pairing will be more than great. I checked in the pairing master book of Mr Dredge and because he doesn’t say anything about this you’ll have to trust my words: they work great together. Even if the fish lacked salt.
Any good resources for explaining what IPA is & getting started learning it? So glad I found this blog 💜
