Beer Porn: Samuel Smith’s Old Brewery Bitter at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, London

December 9, 2011

Noted friend of Tilting Suds, JPE, is in London for a few days of R & R.  At my suggestion, he made his way to Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, famous for being the watering hole of Samuel Johnson, Charles Dickens, and on occasion, Mr. Tilting Suds himself.  JPE took the following photos:

Sweet Jeebus, that looks amazing

I expect Ebeneezer Scrooge to walk out that door if I look at this photo long enough. Note the date the Pub was rebuilt: 1667. Did anything happen in 1666 requiring the rebuilding of this pub?

I have said this many times, in many different contexts, but it bears repeating:  I am unabashedly Pro-American, but the British are just better than us in many ways, and pub culture is at the top of that list.
