June 2023: Fred Waltman

We are devastated to announce the death of Guide co-founder Fred Waltman after a short illness. Fred was the IT brains behind this and his other 'Beer Guide' sites, and his knowledge of many beer cities and regions was second to none - particularly his second home, Bamberg. He was also an expert on Prague, Dusseldorf, Antwerp, Copenhagen and many other great beer destinations.  

Fred was a great friend to Jezza for over 20 years and he will be hugely missed by so many folk all over the beer world. 

We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Fred's family at this incredibly sad time. 

Jezza & Steve, June 2023


Welcome to our London Beer Guide. It’s a curated site, which means these are the London pubs, bars and brewery taps that a couple of beer geeks happen to like and are happy to recommend. Jezza and Steve live in London and are the main researchers and authors of the Guide. You can follow Jezza on Twitter @bonsvoeux1 and Steve is @musinganorak.

Who is this site for?

We've designed the site with the beer tourist in mind, but it is also useful for locals who want to find the best beer and best pubs. Whether you are in London on a dedicated beer trip, or you are in town for other reasons (business, family trip, etc.) and just want to try some good beer, this Guide will help you find the best places.
