Brewdog, Camden, June 2018 #3

Back again for some more food and football before I have to go back to the hotel and sit some mock exam papers before tomorrow afternoon’s two and a half hour exam. Oh how I’m looking forward to that.

I was pretty certain that if I chose any other pub to watch the England match, it would be absolutely rammed, and probably with some fans that I wouldn’t fancy watching football with. So I’ve returned to my World Cup safe space for some more interesting beers and a bite to eat. Beers first.

First up tonight was Gose  from Hi-Wire Brewing, a 4.2% sour with mild tartness and a subtle saltiness.

Also accompanying dinner was Tepache  from The Wild Beer Co. I was looking forward to this one. Tepache is a traditional Mexican soft drink made from spontaneously fermented pineapples flavoured with spices. A beer version of that sounded most interesting, but there was just a very slight hint of pineapple, and a sort of cinnamon flavour lurking. Thought this one might be amazing but sadly not.

Tonight’s burger was Cluck Norris, sesame and poppy seeded brioche bun, southern fried chicken, avocado, red onion, cajun mayo & coriander. A decent bit of fried chicken.

That’s the end of my Camden Brewdog adventures for now. It’s still about the best bet for a decent beer around here, only Caps and Taps a little way to the north is better, and they have limited opening hours and no food, but I will get there one day.

For the record I should probably note that a much changed England side lost 1-0 to Belgium but progress to the next round to play Colombia.
