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.

Love the beer and the venue.

The brewery is always our place of choice to start a night out in Camden. The beer is really good and not that easy to find in pubs (that's another reason to go there). Cheaper that average and have large tables to share, what make easy talk and meet other people in the spot.


I've been acquainted with the Camden Town Brewery bar ever since it first opened its doors to Kentish Town- this predates some rebranding and the now ubiquitous availability of Camden Town beer in bars across London. Little has changed since then in terms of the layout and space of the bar- everything is stripped back and there's never enough seating due to its popularity. It's admittedly due for an upgrade (i.e. bigger premises and I understand that this is in the pipeline), but the bar still has the essentials just right, namely: great staff,  beer poured from a wall of taps with a rotating selection, street food vendors on hand for hot food and a great outdoor space for a sunny afternoon of session drinking. Its proximity to public transport also can't be faulted, as it is literally around the corner from Kentish Town West on the Overgound, making the commute home slightly more bearable.

This is a fantastic little corner of Kentish Town for a post-work or weekend brew. I personally love the selection of the Camden Town beers and believe that the quality of their beer surpasses some of the other smaller breweries around London, so it's great to have a relaxed drink with the fellow converted.

Camden Hells Pale Ale is one of best beers I have tried in London. Not so easy to find, though... That's one of the reason I started going to the brewery (no doubts you can find it there;) And now is one of places of choice in Camden.

The bar is quite cool. You share the table with other people and give you the chance to know new people too. 

For those who are not into ales, there are also lagers and guest beers.

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.
