Firefly

It's amazing what you find in Balham these days. This south-London neighborhood - once gateway to the south, then Clapham overflow, now nappy valley - has never exactly been at the cutting edge, but things are clearly improving. Firefly, a welcoming, down-to-earth neighbourhood bar, has recently upped its beer game, with The Kernel always available and the likes of Magic Rock, Tiny Rebel and Wild Beer popping up from time to time. A recent visit coincided with the appearance of Magic Rock's cherry Circus of Sour on the bar. In Balham!
