Must admit Fang I concur with your comments about the Westerham brewery.

The Railway Bell are also having a mini fest & have added Hobgoblin & Broomstick to their ranges of bitters. These guest beers are 2.50 .

They are having a couple of guest beers each week for the next few weeks but are particular looking forward to the cornish ales Doombar & Tribute .

The Grape & Grain serve ale as an artform really. I think other hostelries on the triangle possibly just serve it to make up the numbers and save having a third Fosters draught.

Alma does good Guinness though it has to be said.


The Alma's ale is shocking, agreed, but the Guinness is that ice cold version and so doesn't actually taste of anything.

Good article. Nice to see 'Purity' heavily featured. Always a favourite, Purity Gold is the sort of ale that helps convert lager drinkers.

Now..... I know that the thought of this will appal all you bearded and leather waist-coated real ale drinkers but I had a sip (or several actually) of a lovely Double Chocolate Stout at the Dulwich Woodhouse recently :P If they sold it in the triangle it might well tempt me from my usual grape based tipple.

The Grape and Grain stock Meantime's Chocolate Stout, which is just as good as Young's version.

As a fully paid up CAMRA member, I'd like to add my support for chocolate beers. A good quality one (like Youngs' Double Chocolate Stout) is actually very difficult to acheive - most efforts simply taste like someone's dropped a Mars bar in a pint of bitter!

And the Majestic wine warehouse in Alleyn Park often sells Double Chocolate Stout by the case!!

You forgot to mention the chunky brown corderoy trousers summit lover. :D

I had a triple yes triple chocolate stout at The Falcon by Clapham Junction last night.
Brewed with cocoa beans, real chocolate and chocolate syrup. Actualy quite nice and you could taste the stout too. Good pub as well, about ten different ales on tap.

Another good one if you are in town is The Bree Louise between Warren Street and Euston station.
Nineteen different ales, six on pump, the rest gravity. Huge changing blackboard of what is on. Also 50p off per pint for CAMRA members.

The Bree Louise is great but sadly I think too many people know about it now and it's very difficult to get a seat and there's not a lot of room to stand.

Never been there but sounds like a visit is in order. I hope no choc beers are in service when I visit though !

The falcon is a pub which i have always visited on the way to royal ascot every year ! 20 years + now !

Chocolate beers are the only one's that appeal personally - that and Murphys which you sadly can't find anymore.

Going a tad off topic here I know but I fervently WISH that you could buy cava or prosecco by the glass in pubs in the triangle. I know that bottles can go flat if not drunk quickly enough but some other places stock them in tiny bottles which provide a good glass full.
