I knew I would get on with Vlad the moment I arrived. He offered me a drink and not a tea or coffee but one of his beers. It was 10:00am. I like that! Vlad has learnt to make beer pretty quickly as you will discover in my interview with him. He is not afraid to experiment and being a relatively small operation (not that small though) can do so. This flexibility and being next door to the Ealing Park Tavern means feedback and freshness are guaranteed. The beers are also available in bottle and in a splattering of pubs around London. I have to say this was a real discovery for me – I loved each and every one of his beers and hope to join Vlad on a brew day later in the year.
