Taproom and bottle shop bar with an outstanding range of beer.
The hugely respected long time online beer retailer Beer Merchants has hit the ground running with their first London bar, part of an ambitious project which includes their new ‘Good Company Blendery’ – the UK’s first dedicated sour beer blendery, supported by Wild Beer Co, Burning Sky and Duration. Just a minute or so from Hackney Wick station, the bar is on the ground floor of a huge old warehouse building, and it’s a great space. Light, airy, comfortable and atmospheric, with a smaller second room for good measure. Beers include 2 cask, 20 keg and around 600 bottles (corkage for on site drinking), all competitively priced, with some superb choices. I expect the beer range will get even more spectacular once the blendery gets up and running. Food is meat and cheese plates, with street food trucks Thur-Sat. The outside seating is great in good weather. Outstanding place and immediately a Guide ‘Top Pick’.
The tap room for the on-line beer merchant. What can I say? This place is superb, a huge cavernous building with plenty of seating plus an outdoor seating area. They have 20 keg and 2 cask lines of excellent, changing, beers. If, however, there is nothing you fancy on draft then you can divert your attention to the copious amount of packaged beers across the 7 large fridges. If you can't find something you like here then maybe beer isn't really your thing!
