It's a 'new openings' party fiesta in this week's London food news! We have the original Cronut bakery coming to town, Crosstown Doughnuts opening in Shoreditch, Chick 'n' Sours arrive in Covent Garden and Hawker House get into the Oktoberfest spirit.
Pressure Drop's Bosko IPA has a bigger imperial brother and it carries some serious punch. But also has a sweeter side.
This week's London Food News includes National Burger Day, Meatopia, Bottomless craft beer brunch at All Star Lanes and... a naked bar?
No seriously. Hackney Brewery's Toast Real Ale is exactly as homely and rousing as a round of awesome toast.
It's an eclectic mix of exciting food news happening in London this week including: discounts on barbecue ribs, discounts on eggs(!?), craft beer, a pizza/burger hybrid, chicken parmigiana from Lucky Chip and rainbow bagels!
What are you doing next weekend? Cancel it, that sounds rubbish. Come with us to Craft Beer Rising instead.
Returning for it's fourth year, Craft Beer Rising is the the UK’s biggest craft beer festival, and for two days it will be setting up home in the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane from 26th-27th February 2016 to serve you delicious pints! (Or thirds, or two-thirds, or schooners or whatever it is you crazy kids like to drink out of these days).
Wait, let me get this straight... Am I allowed to drink this for breakfast?
How the 150 year-old brewer took on the craft beer market by mixing tradition with complex innovation.
When I think of Adnams I immediately think of the Suffolk seaside town of Southwold, the home of Adnams Brewery. When I think of Southwold I think of the artfully painted beach huts, the excellent fish and chips and blowing all my 50ps at The Under the Pier Show, the most bizarre and hilarious collection of bespoke amusement machines ever created. It's entirely fitting then that when I think of all that tradition mixed with a sense of British absurdity and innovation, I think of Adnams and its lovely line of beers, which run the gamut from easy-drinking session ales to more complex yet still evocatively charming brews.
