We found a great Fullers pub not far from Paddington station, The Victoria. Nice sunny day as well. The Victoria pub near Paddington IMG_0283

The Old Kings Head

I haven’t had the pleasure of going for a drink in this pub although I should have by now. It does look fairly traditional East End boozer. The outside is amazing. Check out these superb green tiles.

La Patriote – A Beer from Fribourg in Switzerland

What’s the general mission statement of a corporate? Produce more, sell more, automate more, use less workers, wipe out the local producers. The Cardinal Brewery started in Fribourg in 1788 and by 1904 had moved to a site near the train station. It remained there until in 2011 those bad old boys from Carlsberg moved the production of Cardinal to another brewery in Switzerland that they already owned. The old building became a museum and a place for start ups. Just what the local community needs right, I mean we are all going to be writing apps for each other at the end of the day aren’t we? But thankfully there are some alternatives to corporate blandness and one of them is La Patriot beer brewed by a local microbrewery, Freiburger Biermanufaktur, with local workers. That sounds rather good to me and tastes rather good too.
