Great British Beer Festival 2014

Since 2008, I have been visiting the Great British Beer Festival in London, a great event organized by the Campaign for Real Ale was founded in 1971 and has been promoting promoting real ale, real cider and the traditional British pub ever since. According to Wikipedia, it is now the largest single-issue consumer group in the UK.

In this blog entry, I mainly collected my Twitter and Facebook posts (some in German). You can also check out previous reports: 2008’s “Ein halber Tag in London” (in German) and 2009’s “Drinking for a Good Cause”.

Remembering Cockney Pride in London

12. August 2008

Does anyone remember this huge underground pub which used to stretch from Piccadilly Circus/Coventry St. to Jermyn St.?

I got introduced to it by a British photographer from Farnham who worked for my hometown newspaper in Wolfsburg/Germany at the time.

Since then, I returned to Cockney Pride whenever I was in London (and while the pub was still around).
