Tried the new Kentish Town Pale Ale yet?

Plus, don’t miss the latest show at the Cob Gallery, and a martial arts club in Gospel Oak

DRINK: Sip a Kentish Town Ale

Local musician and man-about-town Will Hunt is the geezer behind the zesty new Kentish Town Pale Ale (a not-too-crazy 4.2% ABV). Made by Froth Blowers Brewing Co (Birmingham’s largest real ale brewery) it’s only been available for the last 12 months at NW5 pubs the Southampton Arms, Pineapple, Rose & Crown and Tapping The Admiral. They’re now planning a whole rebrand of the company, and are looking for a K-Town artist to redesign the pump clip (with proceeds to a local charity). Know anyone (or perhaps yourself?) Get involved here.

ART: Form at The Cob

It will show work by groups of young, international multidisciplinary artists who bring “distinct voices and striking approaches” to painting, sculpture, digital art, photography and mixed media. Until 10th March, free entry, 205 Royal College St NW1. More info here.
