The People’s Supermarket

So, on this mission to delve into the world of craft beer in London, I have realised that there are many places I don’t know about. For example, until 2 weeks ago I didn’t know By The Horns Brewery was 5 minutes from my flat. But then that’s one of the things I love about London; there will always be so much to discover.

Anyway, whilst looking into Little Brew, I noticed The People’s Supermarket in Bloomsbury listed as a stockist. I’d never come across this shop before and since it was only a 10 min walk from my work I decided to pop in on the way home. Didn’t have a chance to have a look around the shop as I was drawn to the shiny bottles in the corner. And boy, the sight that greeted me! Lots of lovely London craft beers – Camden, Little Brew, Meantime and Redchurch. Amazing. One of the assistants did give me a bit of an odd look when I took a photo of their fridge, though. But that’s understandable.

Regretfully, I didn’t buy anything, but I will be back soon and that will be a heavy, clinky walk to the station. Probably get some strange looks on the train. I should get used to that.

Drink of Fulham

I stumbled across this wonderful little place on Fulham Palace Road shortly after it opened a couple of years ago, enticed in by the quaint cafe/boutique feel of it – a big, black awning and a couple of tables out the front.

On entering, you are greeted by the wonderful sight of nearly floor-to-ceiling walls of beer. And although quite small, the selection of beers is truly excellent. Lots and lots of British beers and ciders, plus German, Czech, Belgian, French, American, Australian and a range of interesting world lagers too (China, Kenya, Laos, Morocco etc). There are a couple of fridges for most of the lagers and ciders, just in case you want to crack one open while you’re there, either to retire to a table outside or simply while you’re browsing the rest of their stock.

The other great thing about Drink of Fulham are the homemade curry pastes and other Gujarati treats – simply excellent. Made with a tomato and onion base, the spices are added in front of you so you can have it as hot as you like.
I always stock up on a few pastes when I make a beer run here.

The staff are very welcoming and friendly; I remember one time I was there while a man (a Canadian brewing Belgian beer) was giving a bottle of his brew to Shrila, the owner, to try. She promtly popped it open, shared it around the customers in the shop and then whipped out some tasty little snacks that went very well with the beer. Like I say, very welcoming and friendly.

AND, they also do monthly beer tasting events featuring home-cooked Gujurati cuisine.

The website is very well kept, with pretty much full listings of the beers they stock, along with details of upcoming events and the full curry paste and food menu.

An absolute gem of a shop, and definitely worth a trip.
