Saturday afternoon the lady and I popped up to the relatively newly opened @coaldropsyard
behind Kings Cross Station next to Granary Square to investigate. Obviously I did my research in advance to see if there were any decent drinking establishments there and to my amazement, amongst all the retail shops, restaurants and quirky outlets I discovered a drink in can shop; @houseofcans.
This place is tiny and a bit hidden away but first impressions were strong. A great selection of beers were on offer, including an on-going series of their very own collaboration with @twotribesbrew
, who are just around the corner. You have to drink from the can here, which is fine - we’ve already fed the awesome guy working there, Jules, about letting people bring their own glasses - or even retailing House of Cans/Two Tribes branded glasses for customers to buy...win win! If you’re in the area, check them out as they could do with some love given their location. Good luck to you, I’ll definitely be back with a rucksack for more!
The first beer I chose was this vibrant looking 8% ‘Low Ride’ West Coast DDH DIPA, a collaborative effort between @twotribesbrew
I was pretty excited to try this beer but I unfortunately the first sip was a disappointment. It was a lot thinner than I’d expected. But, the flavour wasn’t bad so I proceeded to wash it down. I was surprised and also a little disappointed that there was zero booze on show with this. It’s something that usually occurs when the flavour is massive and masks it but not here; it was, in all honesty a bit bland for a DDH DIPA and being West Coast, wasn’t a huge amount of bitterness either. After it warmed up a little, it was a little more citrusy and fruity and the booze did show though more as I got through it. Definitely not bad but wanted much, much more.
