Unless they make chug-a-lugging an Olympic sport, the only torch I’ll ever carry is for that brunette I had the hots for in university.
I do love London and can’t think of a better place to watch our athletes compete — on TV from the comfort of one of the city’s multitude of old school pubs.
They take drinking beer very seriously in England, with a pint of almost every variety of ale tracing its roots back to somewhere in the United Kingdom.
While the taps advertising huge multinational producers dominate modern London’s liquor landscape, you can still get a glass of local brew at the public houses owned by individual breweries.
Fuller’s is the city’s oldest, having pumped out suds in its Chiswick brewery since 1845. Its soft, smooth and creamy London Pride Ale (500 ml, $2.80 – $3.44) is, well, the pride of London.
I’m partial to its Organic Honey Dew Ale (500 ml, $3.35 – $3.95), an all-natural, lightly malty creation with a subtle bitterness and just a touch of bee juice.
