Once in a Blue Moon there is a Flying Dog–Rake Pub Shout Out

Calling all American ex-pats!!!  If you are missing beer from back home, the home across the pond, then head down to this tiny but charming pub near Borough Market in London Bridge called the Rake.  They have a stock load of American micro brews like Flying Dog (you must try the IPA) and my nostalgic 6 pack favorite Blue Moon, which was on tap when I first visited (also do insist on the orange–blue moon and oranges are inseparable).  You can also find Sierra Nevada and more–they even have micro brews that were featured in Beer Exposed.  My only request (and if the people from the Rake read this–this is my plea) is to import Magic Hat from Vermont.  I desperately miss Magic Hat No. 9 from my days at uni.  So yeah, if you are feeling a bit home sick or just looking for a change–head over to the Rake for some great American brews and a great selection of specialist beers.  Another fun reason to go is that they have a mini garden outside with umbrellas and space heaters to deal with any unpredictable London weather occurrences.  If you still don’t believe us check out the Time Out review.

    Do they have any Otter Creek Vermont Lager? If so, I’ll be on the next flight over!! It seems harder to find in Vermont than it used to be.
