Taking an idea and running it into the ground. That's one one of my specialities. Along with crappy jokes and numbers.
Talking of which - crappy jokes and numbers - "London!" is jam-pack full of both. Oh yes, indeedy. They're packed in there like herring in a barrel (a little Dutch idiom for you there).
"London!" is a celebration of brewing in London . . . hang on, I've already used that one. It's a compendium of capital delights. Want to learn about Whitbread's beers in excruciating detail? It's the book for you. Or that very special loved one. I'd be giving Dolores a copy, except she said "Don't try fobbing me off with one of your rubbishy books as a present." What better endorsement could you get than that?
For a mere 25 euros, I'll create a bespoke recipe for any day of the year you like. As well as the recipe, there's a few hundred words of text describing the beer and its historical context and an image of the original brewing record.

Guilt button - brewed my recipe commercially? pay me 100 euros. It really is the least you can do.
