After dinner at the Grazing Shed — we learned from yesterday 😉— we had some more beers at The City Arms — a bit old fashioned, but a nice selection of beers anyway — Zerodegrees — big, loud and only average beers — and smallBAR — definitely need to go back to try some other beers on the menu!
In the Castle Arcade we quickly found what we were looking for: Madame Fromage, for a Welsh rarebit and some cheese soup.
After lunch we visited the best known landmark of the city, often used as a filming location: Cardiff Castle.
To conclude the afternoon, we went to BrewDog Cardiff again.
The first (half) day in Cardiff. After checking in at our hotel, we visited BrewDog Cardiff and did the tourist bus tour before anything else. Because we were ahead on schedule, we did a tasting at the Crafty Devil’s Cellar before dinner. Not our smartest idea… 😉
Our last day in London, our last day of visits to museums, bars and breweries.
We started our day checking out the Old Spitalfields Market, having a pulled pork bagel for breakfast, followed by a last coffee at Nude Espresso.
After the lines at Dennis Severs’ House turned out to be a little too long, we went to the Guildhall Art Gallery, mostly to check out the remains of the Roman amphitheater, underneath the current building.
In the afternoon we visited one last brewery — Anspach & Hobday — and the last BrewDog bar of our trip — BrewDog Soho.
The last underground voyage took a bit longer than foreseen, when there were some problems on the direct line to St Pancras. We made it to our Eurostar well in time in the end, thus concluding this beer-filled London trip.
The second part of the day was decidedly more beery…
We had our first beer with a delicious pizza at BrewDog Homerton, the newest addition to the chain in London.
We were told to visit the nearby Howling Hops brewery taproom, and we were happy we did: such a cool place!
Then it was time to properly get started with the Bermondsey Beer Mile. First we went to Fourpure, then Brew By Numbers, and to conclude our first visit, The Bottle Shop, which had a Pressure Drop tap takeover.
For our last tipple we went to BrewDog Shoreditch, within walking distance of our hotel.
After a very warm welcome, a tour of the brewery, and a couple of drinks at Weird Beard, we went to BrewDog Shepherds Bush for a beer and a bite, and to BrewDog Camden for a couple more drinks. A great start of this weekend in London!
Arrived a minute early — so no complaints there — then we went to our hotel — hub Spitalfields — to check in and have a quick play-around with the app operated controls.
Now it’s time to really get started: off to Weird Beard first, then to BrewDog Shepherds Bush and BrewDog Camden!
Starting with a last breakfast at Molmeg Cottage, we spent most of Sunday in DRT’s, buses and trains — and an hour in Perth — travelling back from Balquhidder to Glasgow.
After an early arrival and checkin in our hotel for the last night, we had dinner at one of the newest smoke and barbecue places of Glasgow: Smoak. We can’t wait until this food trend reaches Brussels!
Since our last visit to the city, some more new places opened, so we quickly visited the Hippo Taproom and Shilling Brewing Co. as well, before saying our goodbyes — and drink a couple of great beers — at BrewDog Glasgow.
On Monday, we had breakfast at Where the Monkey Sleeps and a quick round of geocaching, before boarding our train to London.
There we went to the Basement Bar of BottleDog Kings X, but they seem to have misplaced their taps… Not a problem though, plenty of choice in their fridges!
The Eurostarwas on time this time, which means we were in our Brussels home again before midnight.
After a short train ride from Glasgow, we had two hours in Stirling before our bus would leave. We had a quick look at the castle of course, but spent most of our time inBrewDog Stirling, apparently one of the newest additions to the chain.
