A walk and a beer

Walked over the Seven Dials last week to drop off a repeat prescription (one of the features of getting older) and have a beer or two.  In the Cow near the Dials had halves of two burning Sky beers on draught – Plateau and Aurora.  Pleasing atmosphere and two fine beers.  The new layout of the Dials is really great – most of the day pedestrians can cross in any direction they like, the lack of railings and a bigger central island make it safe and open and just lovely to see and use.

Down towards the sea, just off Montpelier Road saw a fairly common coal hole cover with a seating that I’d never seen before – it says that it must be fixed in place using Portland cement.

Had a couple of halves in the Craft Beer shop – Crouch Vale Brewer’s Gold and Triple f Moondance –  before finding Burning Sky’s other regular pale ale, Devil’s Rest (7%) at the Evening Star.  Truly a delicious and dangerous beer.  Slept for a few hours before dinner – there may have been a couple of Dark Star halves as well.
