A new pub and restaurant is serving marmalade-infused IPA to celebrate its opening.
The Paddington Bear beer is inspired by Michael Bond’s famous creation and is available at the Paddington Draft House, which opened its doors to punters at the beginning of October.
It is the latest Draft House pub in the capital and is located in West End Quay.
Ingredients of the new beer, which will be available in keg format towards the end of November, include orange zest and tangerine puree to give it a distinctly zesty, fruity flavour.
The pub and restaurant take its theme from the area’s rich history of travel - such as the famous station designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and the canal basin, which was a key transport link to the east in the early 19th ventury.
The chain take great pride in providing fine beers at affordable prices, a statement saying: “The Draft House is a small group of public houses which aims to do for beer what our culture has done for food and wine over the past 20 years.
"Namely, we take its provenance, cellaring and serving seriously.
“We celebrate choice and quality with an extraordinary range of strange and wonderful brews.”
Paddington Draft House will also offer a wide range of dishes, with a restaurant serving hot food.
It is the second Draft House to open in west London, after the Hammersmith Draft House in Shepherd’s Bush Road.
The new Paddington venue is part of Draft House’s acquisition of the Grand Union Group.
As part of this changeover, all Grand Union pub staff will keep their roles and up to 50 new jobs will be created as the sites are developed into Draft Houses.
