Found this Ghanaian treasure in the heart of Harlsden, Nort West London. The shop in question is called Kotoko and has a variety of Ghanaian and Nigerian beers on offer, as real treasure trove, however no sign of a Ivorian or Cameroonian beer. The quest goes on!
The front label was crumpled, very happy to have this tasty beer ticked off our list!
Got this from my brother who lived in Sydney. A strong larger, best served ice cold.
Clean, crisp taste from the Korean Republic. A really enjoyable brew!
What a gem of a beer – flavoursome and crisp. There are several other Baltika beers, all with different numbers e.g. Baltika 7. This one will suffice for now. We picked this beer up from a Russian food called Kalinka, between Bayswater and Queensway tube stations. Their impressive selection of Russian beers was only beaten by their array of Vodkas.
Football every evening – don’t want it to end!!
The Greeks invented this. Extra points for having a Unicorn on the label. Bagged this beauty from a lovely Greek Grocery on Moscow Road, W2 called Athenian. Lot’s of people have commented (not below) that this was the beer of their holiday in such and such a year, guess it all adds to the Mythos……..I’ll get my coat!
This is just to prove that I drank this today. And by the way, that’s half way through the challenge people!
A tad stronger than what my Granny used to drink. This Nigerian export can be found in most London off-licenses.
Same day as finding the Argentine, this Swiss beer, 1936, pops up in Hampsted, North London! Crisp and refreshing.
The first (of many) of the tricky ones, found this Argentine in The Strongroom Bar, Shoreditch, East London. Result!! Nice beer for a sunny afternoon.
Asked the bar lady for a flake to go in it – denied!
From the tropics of Manaus to the Copacabana beach.
