Stars & Stripes to fly in south London

Celebrate Your Beer Drinking Independence with the White Horse on Parson’s Green’s third American Beer Festival from July 2-4.
If you think American beer is all bland, mass-produced and fizzy then think again, as the White Horse on Parson’s Green, unleashes the finest the American craft brewing movement has to offer in July.
Take your taste buds on a trans-Atlantic trip as south west London’s finest beer pub showcases some of the very best America has to offer, including some never before seen on these shores: draught beers from respected brewers like Goose Island from Chicago, Yard’s Brewing from Philadelphia, and Flying Dog from Maryland. The pub will also be bringing over brews from Odell’s, Brooklyn, Blue Moon, Sierra Nevada, Left Hand and Stone.
The White Horse is hoping to repeat the success of last year's similarly themed event. Timed to celebrate Independence Day, the fest kicks off on Friday July 2 and will carry on throughout the weekend. As Dan Fox, general manager at The White Horse, says: “We hope to engage customers with some craft beers from America to extinguish the myth that all American beer is tasteless.
“A a result we’re really proud to be offering a tremendous choice of the finest American beers, which will include a very special beer from Goose Island, their Bourbon County Stout in cask, that will only be served in halves, alongside some extremely special cask beers from the ever anarchic, and always tasty, Flying Dog, including the brewery’s latest offering Raging Bitch – an IPA brewed with Belgian yeast.
“There will also be a wide array of keg beers on offer from highly-respected breweries like Sierra Nevada, and also little-known in the UK but nonetheless multi award-winning micro-breweries like Yards from Philadelphia..
“And, because the White Horse is always all about demonstrating the diversity of British beers as well, we will have beer on handpull from a whole host of English beers that boast an American influence in hop form from breweries like Crouch Vale, Thornbridge and Dark Star.”
Weather permitting the BBQ will be fired up and offering a whole host of American classics, as well as the ever-popular hog roast and, as you would expect from the White Horse, the beer quaffing will be accompanied by appropriate live music from The Steelers and Fallen Heroes, and there will be live barn dancing with Cut a Shine.
The nearest tube to the White Horse is Parson’s Green on the District Line and the 14bus stops a few minutes walk away on the other side of Parson’s Green.
