The London Fields Brewery is, as you might expect, a small independent brewery in London Fields. They produce hand-crafted ales in a railway arch, my favourite of which is probably the Hackney Hopster. The beers themselves are well worth recommending, but what separates London Fields Brewery is the fact that they have a Tap Room open at the weekends serving the freshest brews alongside live music!
At the moment the Tap Room is only open on Saturdays and Sundays but they have live music on both nights with the Sunday session being normally live jazz with TJ Johnson and band.
It’s basically a little-known hidden local, with great beers. No bad thing itself, but they also have English wines and local snacks. During the colder months of the year the caterers serve delicious food made with fresh hand-picked ingredients. Last summer that meant The Dead Dolls Club were involved for what they jointly called A Summer Affair. It was good.
The London Fields Brewery also have special events and one which is certain to be good (and packed) is the London’s Brewing Festival which is happening in May. It is a is a brand new festival from the London Brewers Alliance to celebrate London’s thriving and vibrant brewing scene. The festival will have over 100 beers from some 30+ breweries.
The Tap Room is just around the corner from the picturesque (and hip) London Fields and is only a stones throw from Broadway Market so I would suggest spending a lovely Saturday in the area.
