Picture of the month

This picture is of a beer brewed by the Slybeast Brewery who occupies the The Ram Inn pub in Wandsworth. Located on the old Young's Brewery site they have captured the heritage of the site in three of their beers. It shows the date that beer was first brewed at Wandsworth. The two other beers are 4ft2 a London Porter which celebrates the Surrey Iron Railway and Beam Engine Bitter which recognises the engine that was located in Young's Brewery.

We welcome pictures from our members, volunteers and the public as our picture of the month. Also follow us on Instagram to see more pictures.
