31 August 2020 update: most - but not all - pubs, bars and taprooms are back open again following the shutdown, though some remain closed for the time being.  Such places are marked as 'Temporarily Closed' in our listings. We have updated all listings with revised opening hours, using the best information available.  Approximately 80% of places in the Guide have changed their opening hours, with most of these operating on reduced hours. Many places will, I am sure, expand or change their hours again in coming weeks and months, so now more than ever it pays to check before you travel. In addition, some places now require advance reservations.

Unfortunately, a number of places will not be reopening. These permanent closures are listed here:

Many places continue to offer local deliveries, collections or online sales. In particular, please continue to support your local London brewery by buying directly from them. You can check who's offering online sales (and many are also doing local deliveries), here.  We also list bottle shops doing online sales and/or local deliveries, here

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, while Fred lives in Los Angeles and does the technical stuff, though he is also visits London from time to time. You can follow Jezza on Twitter @bonsvoeux1, Steve is @musinganorak and Fred is @fredwaltman.

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.
