London beer

Supermarket’s cheap

The ‘craft beer’ in the supermarket hullabaloo continues to divide opinion, and while it’s not so neatly divided as (independent) retailers versus customers, it’s approaching it. I was broadly positive about Tesco’s move into ‘craft beer’ when I wrote this back in November, but my position has changed somewhat. I

Affinity Brew Co. – Tottenham

Tottenham is getting a new brewery for Christmas, with Affinity Brew Co. set to open its doors this Saturday. With Beavertown, Redemption and One Mile End already in the area, Tottenham now boasts a bona-fide brewing community, and as a resident of the hitherto unfashionable London Borough of Haringey, I am thankful.  I was

Another sign of beer’s unstoppable rise is the number of independent bottle shops that the capital boasts, bestowing upon us the gift of drinking great beer from here, and across the world, at home.  It

Made in Hackney – London Brewers’ Market

Hackney is synonymous with craft beer in London and is well represented at the London Brewers’ Market this Easter, with beers from Hackney Brewery and the event’s organisers, The Five Points Brewing Co. I was living in Hackney when the craft beer revolution started to gather pace; it was an exciting time as new breweries seemed to
