A brewpub in London

Stonch, of the internet’s Stonch’s Beer Blog, brings news of a new brewpub in London. For a city this big, it’s surprising there aren’t more (Stonch counts five). But then again, how much would it cost to buy or lease central a London property big enough to accomodate brewing and a pub?

Design your own beer label

Big Danish brewery Tuborg now offer a service where, as long as you order more than 30 bottles, you can design your own label.

Din Tuborg

I wonder if Tuborg are just particularly confident about their brand, or if we’ll see more breweries following suit, given how easy it is to manage this kind of thing online now?

At any rate, I’d love to customise the labels on Fuller’s London Pride for my Dad’s birthday present.

New (old) brewery in the Hebrides

An interesting story on BBC News Online – after 500 years without, the island of Colonsay in the Hebrides has a brewery again.

The head brewer at the Colonsay Brewery says they’ll make an India Pale Ale, an 80 shilling and a lager. It’s probably cold enough for good lagering up there, so it might be decent.
