First Proper Pint in Awhile


It nice to be back in London on a cold wet windy blustery gloomy summer evening. The sunscreen business must be awful, but I am sure the parka industry is booming.  

I am enjoying a nice pint of Samuel Smith’s Organic Lager at the Rising Sun pub which sits across from St. Bartholomew The Great Church (from the 12th century)

A pint at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese

 
When you sit at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese in London you realize that your definition of “old” may be too young.  Stating that it had been rebuilt  in 1667 makes you wonder how truly proud they are of the improvements made.  Usually I drink a pint of a traditional British bitter, but today I decided to drink a cold lager with my German communal tablemates,  Cheers and Prost!  This pub serves the full line of Samuel Smith ales – sadly it seems that the traditional British bitter ales are not the most popular (even with locally based clientele), as most people I observed chose the much colder organic lager.  I am not sure if that is a statement about the taste or the temperature.  I any event, sitting at one of the two tables next to the charcoal burning fireplace is always fun and provides for a time machine experience.
