Everybody knows booksellers like a drink. (Marie is out now buying booze for the AC Grayling event tonight) Our shop is conveniently situated next door to a pub called the Camel. Until very recently it was a bit of a crap pub. In other words there were no decent ales on tap, a problem for a beer lover like myself.
But now things have changed! They have IPA and Abbot on tap!
IPA is a little whimpy but certainly worth a jar or two on a hot afternoon.
Abbot is among my current favourites - strong, tasty and traditional.
Of course the best pint around is London Pride, soon to be the only real ale brewed in the capital. And Fullers is a family company, still clinging doggedly to their independence in the face of interest from the big boys...
