White Horse flies the Stars and Stripes
at iconic south London pub
Sorry for the late notice but I've only just learned about this. The world-famous White Horse pub at Parson's Green near Putney is staging a three-day festival of American beers this weekend -- July 3-5.
The festival will showcase beers rarely seen on British shores from American craft brewers. There will also be British beers that use distinctive American hops.
The American beers at the festival will include cask ales from Sierra Nevada, Victory and Stone Brewery. Stone is showcasing a smoked porter with vanilla pods in the cask, a pale ale with coriander and an extra oak-chipped version of Arrogant Bastard.
Keg beers will include a choice from Goose Island, Flying Dog, Anchor, Great Divide and Left Hand breweries as well as Victory Prima Pils. English beers due to appear include Saltaires Cascade and Hawkshead's Brodie's Californian.
The opening ceremony will be marked by the broaching of a 40-gallon whisky cask filled with London Porter from the Meantime Brewery in Greenwich.
