My brewing knowledge is pretty limited but I believe it's a kettle on the left and a mash tun on the right. Can you guess the brewery?

One part of the White Horse has already featured on Beer Lens before. Here's the other side of the pub. The popular pub is usually very busy so I had to arrive at 9:30am on a Friday morning to get this shot.

The Bunch of Grapes is perhaps one of the best pubs in south Wales. Located in Pontypridd and run by the Otley Brewing Co. the pub serves a wide range of cask of bottled beers, traditional ciders and makes excellent food (including bread which you can buy from behind the bar). The staff are very friendly and they have regular festivals which prove to be extremely popular. You can read a reivew of their last beer festival on Travels with Beer

The tasting room at the Fuller's Brewery. If you ever get to visit, you have 30 minutes to try as many of their beers as you can. I had a morning tour so steered clear of the strong Golden Pride.

The Victory brewpub in Hereford, England is unique in that its bar is contained within a large galleon that comes complete with cannons. Owned by the Hereford Brewery (previously called the Spinning Dog Brewery), the galleon dates back to a refit from the early 90s when the pub was owned by the Jolly Roger Brewery.

A bottle of Sexual Chocolate from Foothills Brewing as spotted at a private Beer Advocate tasting. Delicious beer! I'll be featuring more photos from this tasting in the coming days. It was strictly for cellared, aged, one offs, limited or rare beers.

Beer selections at the Troegs brewery tasting room in Harrisburg, PA. Rumor has it that the brewery is relocating to Hershey, PA next year.
