Kentish Town

When its issue began gushing forth in 2010, the Camden Town Brewery became the third biggest beer producer in London by volume, behind Fuller’s (No1) and Meantime (No2). Camden Town’s marketing is clever, the labels are smart – and the beer is fantastic. Its railway arch premises at Kentish Town West have already proved inadequate in size, and fermentation tanks have been moved outside the building: now, part of it has been fitted out to create the truest sort of brewery tap, one where the beer has only a few swaying paces to travel between production and consumption.

Camden Town brews six beers all year long (Hells lager, USA Hells lager, Unfiltered Hells, Pale Ale, Gentleman’s Wit, and Camden Ink). There are also a few more taps showcasing the brewery’s limited run brews.

Outside, street food is served up from the likes of Motherflipper, Oli Baba’s and Dosa Deli. The brewery has recently had a revamp with new murals and punchy signage added to the space, as well as extra tables and seating outside.

Camden Town Brewery Bar regularly host brewery tours, dining events and parties, so keep an eye on their website for the latest news. Kentish Town is not short of quality pubs, but the Brewery Bar is something new, a lo-fi link between brewer and drinker. The people pulling the pints are the same ones who brewed them – so it’s a great way to get closer to the source.

After tasting some of their brew in an other pub, we had to check out their own bar. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, nice brew, and cool location. Would love to come back!

Friendly staff, free popcorn, street food, great beers and a faultless brand identity. Well done, Camden Town Brewery. Well done.

Nice beers, can't say it's exactly comfortable in there and with tiny, err, facilities. Also, and for apparently no good reason, the place was full of Americans. So much for that 'local' flavour or should I say flavor. Shame, because as I say nice beer, but would rather catch the bus further down the street to the Brewdog.
