Post by Sydenham_BR »

and we're having a party to celebrate! To mark the transition from pop up to full on permanent sydenham drinking spot, we're inviting you all to celebrate with us on tuesday 29th december. The exclusive to us (and you!) beer that we brewed live in the pub is making its debut, and there might even be a free pint for the first few of you to arrive. Come and raise a glass with us!

This is fantastic news. Really pleased it's working out for you guys. You're now my new local. 3 mins walk. I timed it on your opening night. In fact the weekend just gone was the first weekend since you opened I haven't been in for a pint or two with G-lady and that was because we were ill!

See you at the bar.

Hi Guys

Brilliant news!

In Forest Hill we have our new Sourdough Pizza Restaurant (BOnA) opening on the same evening but I'm sure some of us Forest Hill traders would love to come along and support our new permanent Sydenham neighbour on the same evening too.

Can you drop me an email so I can share info with fellow FH traders plz.

sugarmountain.info@gmail.com

Wish you the very best of luck (but don't think you need it) and am positive you will go down a storm as full time traders in Sydenham.

This news, together with Bob Wines opening up by the station, makes for an excellent local Christmas present. Both traders will help, hopefully, in making other innovative retailers consider setting up in Sydenham. The very best to all at Sydenham Beer Rebellion! We'll be in for a celebratory pint during the break.

It's 2 minutes less from Lower Syd (I was the first to ever be served in it by the way!).

Why not suggest a meet on a likely quiet night? They have wifi so we can all resort to peering at our cellphones if it turns out we make lousy drinking buddies ;)

The 1/3rd pints (of beer that is, lol) are useful for light drinkers. Also, they offered me a one-gulp taster at first - do they still do that?

Are they child friendly? (It's a joke Rod ;-) !!!)

I always fancy going but don't get much chance without the full family package. It always seems fairly busy passing by and during the day when we could got for meetings they don't seem open.

Do they do food?

They def do food somtimes. Whenever I've been there they've got pop up caterors in so to speak in. Last time I went it was ' old skool dinners' which was much better then it sounds!

They do indeed do food though perhaps not every night of the week. Not sure. They have guest cooks, "pop-up restaurant" style.
My girlfriend and I ate there one Friday night a couple of weeks ago; whoever the guest chef happened to be that night was providing hearty, warming old-school British/European fare. I had pork meatballs with kale and mash. Went very well with the beer. We also followed up our meals with a nip of a very pleasant whiskey called Auchentoshan. I'm not normally partial to smooth whiskies - prefer the peaty monsters Laphroag or Ardbeg - but this was nice, like a sophisticated Jack Daniels for grown-ups.

Anyway, back to the food: this weekend they have someone called Don Luigi, doing Italian street food. I'm hoping to pop in. Their Twitter feed is the best way to keep abreast.

I'll whisper this so Rod doesn't hear :) but I frequently see couples with children in there in the early evening (I walk past it every weekday after nursery pickup)
