Flight of four beers from London breweries, made in collaboration with the four London BrewDog bars. Left to right:

1. Lovibonds/Shepherd's Bush: Purple Rain (5.8%, foraged fruit sour). Properly sour, it's not just the fruit talking (unlike the lime sour below). Like a more souped-up version of the Blitz range.

2. Five Points/Shoreditch: Smoke & Mirrors (7.8%, smoked porter). Very, very nice indeed. Dark, smoky, smooth, and feeling very much like the strongest thing we're going to drink all day. Very well balanced, says the BBG.

3. Brodies/Clapham: Southside Zester (3.7%, lime Berlinerweisse). Lots of lime with hint of sourness - reminds BBG of Rose's Lime Cordial. Refreshing and light, the one we actually started the day with.

4. Pressure Drop/Camden: Syd Strong's (7.1%, black rye IPA). Very interesting, complex flavour, feeling more like one of BrewDog's stout experiments. BBG finds it 'a bit chemical, but in a good way... I like it, but find it very difficult to describe'. Works well with Camden bar's Scotch eggs.
