4 out of 5 stars
(9user reviews)

Brewers of some of the coolest looking beer around. Beavertown started out in Duke's Brew and Que in De Beauvoir Town, which is how it got its name – 'Beavertown' is apparently what cockneys used to call this gentrified area of London. Before long they needed more room and moved to Fish Island before heading to even larger premises in Tottenham, but of course you can still get a Beavertown brew in De Bauvoir. And fantastic illustrator Nick Dwyer is the man behind Beavertown's eccentric and eye-catching labels.

£2 for a can... do I need to say anymore?! The brewery is only open until 8pm so this is a great place to head to for some day time drinks in the sun. Don't expect anything glamorous, it is literally rows of tables positioned in front of the brewery, there are also two food stalls for when you get peckish, but the perfect place to head to for a chilled afternoon and some drinks!

Now that the sun has arrived where better to spend your Saturday afternoon than in an industrial estate near Tottenham Hale... Seriously, Beavertower brewery serves amazing beers at good value. A great atmosphere and an eclectic mix of people... a lot of who are hipsters. There are benches inside and outside but its pretty hard to get a table so be prepared to stand. Definitely worth a visit, it does quieten down in the colder months, but I love it there.

Tucked away in an industrial estate near Tottenham Hale station is this super cool brewery selling an awesome range of craft beers in beautifully designed cans. I love visiting this place but it has become a little bit too popular nowadays - its hard to get a table, the queues are long and 30 something hipsters are bringing their small children to run around all over the place. Its worth dropping by though and if it's too busy just pick up some take away cans of beer (6 for £12 is great value!).


Spent Saturday afternoon in the beautiful sunshine at Beavertown! If the weather is good, it's absolutely worth the visit. They have also put up a tent outside for those rainy days. Make sure you get there right on 2pm to score a table.


You can get a 6 pack of cans for only £12 and they always have all their standard beers plus a few of their special brews. My favourite Tropigamma unfortunately wasn't in stock when I was there, but I settled for the Lupaloid which I now also love.


I hope everyone else enjoys their time at Beavertown as much as I did! Can't wait to visit again.

Saturday afternoons at the Beavertown Brewery are such good fun (the bits you can remember, at least) - I've been going on and off for the last few years and the number of people visiting has rapidly increased (get their early on Saturday to secure a picnic table outside). If you are a fan of dark or flavoured beers, this is the place for you. They also do limited release editions such as a Pumpkin spice beer during the Halloween period. Tastemaker Tip - the bar inside often has a long queue, but the outside bar (selling just cans, no draft) often has no queue meaning you can get served straight away.

About a 5 min walk from Tottenham Hale tube station, it's a bit out of the way but you have the opportunity to spend the whole day trying every beer at this brewery! From the IPA's to APA's to Stout, by the can or draught too. Be warned that when the sun is out, the queue for the draught beer snakes around the whole brewery. There is a small hut outside in the car park area that you can pay for canned beers, if you're not fussy, go there to pay.

Also, on offer is a street food place doing BBQ, didn't try any but it looked good, I mean, you can't mess up BBQ!

Since its launch in 2014, the Beavertown Brewery taproom has drawn pilgrimages of craft beer drinkers to Tottenham Hale. As the brewery became more obsequious and recognised across the city, the popularity of the taproom has proportionally increased- currently only open to the public on Saturdays, it's customary to expect queues: the ten taps at the bar will always have the freshest beers going, with the core range and seasonals represented in good measure. The beer list is available in advance online and special releases will be promoted on social media. There are fridges where bottles can be purchased and customers can imbibe onsite. Outside, there's a small can bar of the core range, where Neck Oil and Gamma Ray can be sourced without a lengthy wait.


There are pita crisps available at the bars and always a pop-up food vendor purveying hot dishes to counterbalance the drinking session- on a recent visit, we had scrumptious burgers from Squid Kitchen paired with some patatas bravas. When the sun is shining, there's plenty of seating outdoors in the form of communal wooden tables, chairs made from pallates and even reject diner plastic chairs and table sets. Inside, there's no seating, but clusters of people gather- prudently within a eyeshot from the bar. There's also the thrill of supping a beer in the brewery itself, under the shadow of the mammoth fermentation tanks. The atmosphere is always convivial, mostly older Millennials and discerning types- but there's always a contingency of drinkers who are content to graze on their Gamma Ray without sampling some of the smaller batch offerings.

The Beavertown staff are always welcoming and enthusiastic- they'll talk you through the selection on tap and will make recommendations. They're run off their feet as the queue snakes around the bar without respite from the moment that the doors open, but maintain a steady pace and sense of humour. While it's patently obvious that the popularity of the brewery and their beer has been unprecedented over the past two years and that the taproom can't sustain the swelling crowds for much longer, it's worth experiencing before the next incarnation of the brewery bar is announced. There's a lot of talk about a designated pub or expansion within the confines of the industrial yard, but nothing has been officially announced. In the meantime, it's worth eking out to Tottenham Hale to drink some great beer from the source- just make sure you try a bit of everything and that you get down there early.

Aww Beavertown Brewery, we go way back to 2013 when I was lucky enough to stumble upon this place through an event for work. Since that first visit to their Hackey Wick establishment to their location now in Tottenham Hale (which I live 20 minutes from now - completely unintentional of course), I have been a happy beery-go-lucky patron of theirs. 


So first, the beers - the Gamma Ray Pale Ale is one of the most drinkable and flavored pale ale's around; the Holy Cowbell stout is just some creamy, smoky, chocolate-y goodness. But my favorites have to be Beavertown's seasonal fare: Stingy Jack Spiced Pumpkin Ale in the Fall, Bloody 'Ell Blood Orange in Spring/Summer and the Power of the Voodoo Triple IPA. Seriously, if you're unsure - try one of these and you will be convinced. 


The venue - in Tottenham Hale is exactly what you want from a brewery/bar. Wide open spaces with the barrels, tanks and can-line all visible, with plain but comfy picnic tables. On Saturday's they have food trucks and games. Combined with delicious beer and a relaxed environment, what more could you want? Oh and the staff is delightful! And the prices more than reasonable at £2.50 for 3rds. There. That's all you could want. 


Honestly, I was not a fan of beer before trying Beavertown brews and they are wholly to blame for the long passionate path that has led me to become the beer devotee I find myself today.

I went to the brewery last Saturday for the 'Be(aver) my Valentine' 4th birthday party. It was brilliant! Craft beer lovers were treated to an array of interesting breweries' wares to try. The vibe was very laidback and dogs were allowed. It was a bit oversubscribed - they said they were expecting 4,000 people through the day and got about 4,000 the first hour. They had to close the gates at one point. There were 3 tents where brewers had a stand. There were bands playing throughout the day and a food tent. The brewery itself was open and one could try the Beavertown beers as well. I love sours and really, really, really enjoyed the collaboration called Love Child – Sour Saison by Beerbliotek, Brekeriet, and Beavertown. Really great time! The brewery and taproom looks great to visit on a normal Saturday too.
