London's beer geek central, The Rake is a tiny bar around the corner from Borough market and owned by the same people as the market's Utobeer stall (qv).

The d├ęcor is bright and clean, with signatures on the walls from many of the world's celebrity brewers. The main bar room has a couple of small high tables, while those in need of a proper seat will need to make do with the large heated patio.

Beneath the "No Crap On Tap" sign, there is a modest but very carefully chosen range of cask and keg beers. On my visit they included Cantillon Gueuze, Schlenkerla Maerzen, Racer 5 IPA and Dark Star Coffee Stout.

The bottled range is immense and varied, with rarities from BrewDog a particular specialty.

On the down side, service has been reported as occasionally brusque (though I didn't find it so), it gets very crowded, and prices are pretty high.

Still -- very much one of London's must-drinks.
