The Pelican Pub and Brewery is located in Pacific City on the beautiful Oregon coast. The brewery has been operation since 1995 and they serve a large selection of core and seasonal beers. It is well worth a visit and it probably has one of the best views of any pub on the Oregon coast.

The Angel pub is located near Tottenham Court Road directly across the road from Google's shiny new central London offices. Originally built in 1898 the pub was originally called the Bowl. It's exterior is hardly inviting and until relatively recently I didn't realise that it was owned by Samuel Smith. They purchased it from Courage in the late 1990s/early 2000s and restored it's interior which had become quite run down. There is now a public bar, a lounge and a snug.

The Kirkstone Pass Inn, one of the highest pubs in the UK (1,481ft above sea level), in the Winter (Boxing Day 2009) and Spring (April 2010). I was fortunate to take both shots from exactly the same spot (actually unplanned).

The Bloomsbury Tavern was built in 1895 after slums in the area were demolished to build Shaftesbury Avenue. Owned by Shepherd Neame, the pub was the last in London to have a wine-only license. Today the small pub serves a selection of ales from the brewery.
