How long have Rodenbach cans been around? That's one of the last beers I would have thought would start canning.

No idea... They're twice as expensive as bottles though, hence why they didn't sell at work I guess...

I have been in London three days, and I have not seen much for beer that is over 5% ABV. I had a lovely Northern Star Mocha Porter by Northern Monk Brew Co. (at a pub by the Cutty Sark in Greenwich), but what happened to all the strong beers that were invented in London, so that they would stay for a while in the hold of a ship? I guess I'm going to the wrong pubs, I have read that this is a lasting effect of WW1, but that was a while ago. Where can I find a good beer selection at a pub in London, that showcases great British beers?

@BenjaminZeev -- I haven't been to London in forever, but the only bar I found that seemed good back then was Cask Pub and Kitchen. I'm sure things have changed a ton and there are lots of good places now, though. Beer Advocate has area listings that may provide some ideas too.

Drinking a Ritterguts Gose right now. Tastes quite a bit different from what I recall. Like a summery version of it with a big heap of raspberry notes. Very nice. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I was near the Market Porter, which is rated well at Beer Advocate, and while their selection on tap is fairly broad, the staff member that helped me did not seem knowledgeable about the beer, so it was pretty much shots in the dark. As someone with very little knowledge of the UK craft beer industry, it is hard to know what to try. Anyway I would say that the craft/import beer industry in the USA is more vibrant even in a city as small as Boston. London does tea better, and I don't mean just high tea.

 

I did happen upon a place I stopped for a burger that had an interesting beer, a dry hopped berliner weisse called calypso by Siren craft brew. It was a decent sour with just enough of the bitter coming through to give it balance.

In San Diego last week. Every goddamn beer there is great, but I especially liked the ones I had from Modern Times.
