London Brewpub beers.

Afternoon all,

This Weekend, Friday 27th April - Sunday 29th April we're having a bit of a brewpub focus here at Tap East with not only ours, but beers from four other London brewpubs being put on cask.

For the tickers amongst you here's what will be available...

Brew Wharf, Borough - Cream Ale.
The Florence, Herne Hill - Bonobo.
The Florence, Herne Hill - Beaver.
The Bull, Highgate - 90 Shilling.
The Bull, Highgate - APA.
Beavertown, De Beauvoir - Neck Oil.
Beavertown, De Beauvoir - Smog Rocket.
Tap East - Topaz IPA
Tap East - J(ames)W(ilson)B(itter).

For those of you who don't know these sites here's a little info on them.

Brew Wharf - Part of the massive Vinopolis complex next to Borough Market. They'll always have two cask conditioned beers on at any one time and Brewer, Angelo Scarnera isn't afraid of using the odd hop here and there!

The Florence - Part of the capital pub company and situated right behind Herne Hill station, the florence has been a much needed kick up the arse for the herne hill area which until it came along was sorely lacking. In brewer, Peter Haydon they have someone who has the pedigree to produce some real beers of note! 

The Bull - situated right in the heart of leafy Highgate in N6, The Bull opened last year and became an instant favourite of mine, the beers brewed on site taste great and their Pulled Pork sarnies are to die for. Dan Fox has truly come up with a winning formula here!

Beavertown - The brewery and it's beers were only launched last week, it's owned by the same guys who own Dukes Brew and Que and by all accounts, brewer, Logan Plant has really set the bar high in terms of beers. I can't wait to taste these having had to miss the launch party last week!    

See you all soon,
