Ten of the best breweriews and taprooms to visit in London

Here at BeerBellyBros, we love nothing more than an afternoon brewery tour, followed by a few leisurely pints in a buzzy beer garden.

London is a beer obsessed city, that is full of exceptional beers, and with this comes some amazing breweries. We recommend going to brewery tours to learn more about how the beer is made and most importantly tasting beer fresh from the source.

Although COVID-19 is preventing a lot of brewery tours, some have started up again so please check websites for availability.

    Crate Brewery

    Location: Hackney Wick

    Crate brewery offers everything you would expect from a great taproom: excellent beer, relaxed location, live music, and fresh pizza. The interior of the brewery is rustic with a real hipster vibe, which makes it quirky enough but not too enough to scare any of the generalists away. The real pièce de résistance of Crate Brewery is the outside space, which is plentiful and hugs against the river making it a location that cannot be beaten for a few sundowners.
