This week we’re visiting the brewery looking to take on Guinness in London – Anspach & Hobday. London Black isn’t just a Guinness pretender though, it’s based on a classic London Porter – the capital’s own beer style that all but disappeared at the end of the 1800s. Join us as we talk about the beer, taste it alongside Guinness itself, and then take it to the streets!
