26 Beers in 2 Days (Looking back at London’s Great British Beer Festival 2015)

leave a comment »

For the eighth time in a row, I just visited the Campaign for Real Ale‘s Great British Beer Festival in London again. It is running until tomorrow (Saturday, August 15) at the Olympia. Out of over 900 real ales, ciders, perries and international beers I was able to sample 26 during two days. I did not shoot a video this time because there have not been major changes since last year:

Power drinking: Two days at London’s Great British Beer Festival (#GBBF 2014)

Great British Beer Festival 2014

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 which 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”.

As a first taster, I put together a short video with some festival scenes:

I enjoyed last year’s half-day visit to London for the Campaign for Real Ale‘s Great British Beer Festival at Earls Court Exhibition Center so much, that I stayed for two days this year.

Again, I used Twitter to keep an online diary – here are my tweets in chronological order (plus a list of the beers I sampled).

Cockney Pride (Piccadilly): Von schönen Zufällen und der “kleinen Welt” Internet

with one comment

Cockney Pride Piccadilly Circus
Auch wenn das zu Anfang nicht so rüberkommen mag: Irgendwann am Ende dreht sich dieser Beitrag auch um schöne Zufälle und die „kleine Welt“ Internet. ;-)

Los geht’s:

Vor circa drei Monaten schrieb ich bei Qype einen englischsprachigen Beitrag über den Pub Cockney Pride am Londoner Piccadilly Circus. Den habe ich vor langer, langer Zeit kennen gelernt – durch den großartigen englischen Fotografen David Taylor, den das Schicksal nach Wolfsburg verschlagen hatte.

Remembering Cockney Pride in London

with 3 comments

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).

Ich bin kein ausgesprochener Freund von Grenzerfahrungen, aber ab und zu muss es mal sein. Nach dem blondierten Grauen (= Geschwister Hofmann) widmete ich mich vorgestern kühlen Blonden (und einigen Brünetten).
