A bartender asks Gavin Smith whether he fancies a citrus pale ale or Kolsch-style lager at the Newman Arms -- a London pub dating back to 1730 .As soon as Smith finishes his drink, he rejoins a playful and IPA-fueled tour unlocking similar stories linked to London locales where renowned novelists and poets drank and debated literature.Organized by English writers and actors, the three-hour tour takes attendees through London's Fitzrovia district and ends in Westminster's Soho area, which includes stops by the offices of Sir Paul McCartney and the recording company of Amy Winehouse.The writers launched the tour in 2012 to take advantage of the London Olympics, but the group failed to get it started in time.True, sometimes the tour attracts some who just want to get plastered, Hennegan admitted.For now, almost all the writers discussed in the London tour are white (although a Jimi Hendrix-connected site is visited).He was forced to drop out of a high school during the Great Depression but loved to read. I sat inside wondering if he knew some of the pubs he visited were connected to famous writers.
