London’s Barrelling

Of course, defining London gets difficult – including Croydon may well be stretching a point, but one of them call themselves South London. A lot of these I know from bottles at St Pancras. It’s likely to be out of date almost immediately – I found it hard to track down start dates for some of these and webpages for others. Tracking down the actual beer will be a helluva day out – a trip to Hackney seems in order.

  • Beavertown, London, N1 5AA. (2011). Associated with brewpub, Duke’s Brew and Que. Had a couple of nice bottles; love their design.
  • The Botanist, Kew Gardens, Richmond, London Brewpub.
  • Brew By Numbers, 66 Southwark Bridge Road, London. (2012). Microbrewery, only seen bottles.
  • Brew Wharf, Borough Market, London Bridge, London. (2005). Brewpub.
  • Brodies, London.  (2008). Brewpub is King William IV, Leyton also Old Coffee House, Soho.
  • Brupond, Leyton, London. (2012).
  • By The Horns, Wandsworth, London. (2011).
  • Camden Town, London. (2006). Tried some of their bottles; I think I’ve had keg.
  • Clarence & Fredericks, Croydon. (2012). Croydon, of course.
  • Crate, Hackney Wick, London (2012). Brewpub. Or brewpizzeria.

    Oi, Mate. It’s a *LONDON* borough you know. And C&F is a SE postcode so that’s proper London
