I was very fortunate yesterday to be able to 'help' out on a brew at Brixton Brewery. It was a great day. Not only is their beer awesome, but they have a great group of people aiming to keep it that way.
I spent valuable time with Jez, one of the founders, who offered hints, tips and advice for which I am very grateful.
I was told before I started all this, that the beer community was friendly and helpful and I can now confirm that it really is.
Try their beer if you haven't already (the Reliance Pale being racked yesterday is a good start). And if you can find any Electric IPA made on 15th October, then that particular one is likely to be pretty special...
