KAMera- An eye on the Ontrade 38

Hello all!

Although my mind is still somewhat distracted by the London Wine Fair and my inevitably terrifying presentation next week (please do NOT come to watch), I realise that there ARE other drinks out there in pub/bar-land.

And in fact, when reviewing a pub on Wednesday for one of my clients, I was informed in no uncertain terms by the licensee of 36 years, (Alan from “Bentlands” on the outskirts of Wolverhampton, pictured below with his lovely wife, Marie) that a good pub revolves around good beer, and without it, it’s a restaurant.

So this week I have spent some time chatting to the members of KAMunity about BEER. Ale, lager, craft ale, craft lager, stout… whatever style you like, but BEER!

In both pubs I reviewed in the last week, publicans stressed the importance of good quality beer. So I asked KAMunity members what was important to beer drinkers- apart from taste and price- when being served a pint in a pub/bar. The top 3 answers, in order-

1- Quality of serve (clean lines etc)
2- Speed of service
3- Temperature

If you want the full results, drop me an email and I will send them directly to your inbox. You’re welcome.

We have a child-free weekend this week (yippee!), so I would imagine that Mr Katy and I will be living it up at some Rock and Roll parties with drugs and strippers…or most likely, we will finally manage to finish series 8 of 24 on Netflix tonight and tomorrow and then on Sunday, we are planning a London walk, starting in Soho- with 3 pubs plotted on the way!

If there is a specific issue you’d like me to focus on in KAMera emails, let me know- and keep your pictures and feedback coming!

Enjoy your weekend,
