I once paid £5.80 for a bottle of Punk IPA here and then knocked most of it over into the sink while drying my hands in the bathroom. That's the closest I've ever come to crying in Shoreditch, and I still get weepy thinking about it now.

This place is expensive, and I've yet to discover what exactly it is that my money is going towards, bar bog standard beer that I can have and pay less for...more

The result is that I am pleasantly surprised that I didn't start bleeding from my ears.
