The London Pub: Beef Dip with Russell Brewing Blood Alley Bitter

When you walk into The London Pub on Main Street you really feel that “true pub” feeling right away. Dart boards, pool tables, sports on the TV’s and the lively crowd throwing back pints! But, that’s not all they have to offer at The London Pub, they’re also doing some killer sandwiches and have a great selection of craft beers on tap!

This volume of “This Sandwich, That Beer” features their fantastic Beef Dip with the perfect partner…Russell Brewing’s Blood Alley Bitter.

The first thing that makes this sandwich great is the toasted ciabatta bun. It’s soft and spongy, and perfect for soaking up the juice from the slow roasted sliced strip loin and the super flavourful au jus. Then it’s the melted provolone and garlic mayonnaise that give it that extra punch and really separate it from your standard beef dip.

When looking for a beer to pair with this sandwich, I couldn’t think of a better choice than Russell’s Blood Alley Bitter, found on tap at The London Pub. I mean, slow roasted beef and an ESB? You don’t get a much better food and beer pairing than that. Classic! Now, Blood Alley isn’t your average ESB, it’s slightly higher on the bitterness, which lends itself nicely to the richness of the beef.
