The best London breweries delivering craft beer to homes

Time to get the craft beers in! Order from one of London’s top breweries, now doing beer delivery in London and beyond

While we can’t wait to get back to the bar for a cool, crisp pint, we’re really grateful for the fact that you can still drink some of the best stuff going by ordering directly from London’s best breweries. Not only that, but you’re supporting some of the hardest hit small independent businesses right now. With pub doors now having been closed for so long, UK beer sales were down by 10 percent last year. So do the right thing and order in some locally made brewskis. Here’s our list of London beer makers who are now delivering directly to front doors in their neighbourhoods – or even UK-wide, if you’re outside of London but still craving a taste of the Bermondsey Beer Mile. Cheers!

The best craft beer delivery in London

  • Bars and pubs
  • Craft beer pubs
  • Haggerston

Adding a whole new meaning to a ‘lock-in’, Walthamstow’s Signature Brewery has launched Pub in a Box. Ideal for flatmates cooped up together, this delivery costs from £25 and will include beer glasses and mats, snacks, curated playlists and a pub quiz – not to mention those all-important tinnies (eight, 16 or 24 per order). It’s also supporting musicians who might be out of work, offering them positions as couriers for this very precious cargo. Outside of this very nice idea, the brewery is offering one to two working days on its orders.

  • Brockley

This SE London community business is running a pedal-powered beer delivery service, which is way better than that future they always predicted with flying cars and robot postmen. 
They provide a same-day, seven-days-a-week delivery for draught beer, mini-kegs, bottles and cans to all of south-east London. Order by 11am and bike deliveries arrive between noon and 7pm that day. Which is mighty impressive. SE4, SE12 and SE13 are eligible for free delivery; other SE postcodes have a £3 fee. They also do UK-wide delivery for mini-kegs kegs, bottles and cans.

Little Faith
  • Bars and pubs
  • Breweries
  • Deptford
  • price 2 of 4

Deptford Creekside’s ace Taproom Little Faith (from the Bermondsey brewers) is planning to reopen its outside yard in April, but till then, comfort yourself with its selection of beers, ales and stouts out for delivery. 

Most come as crowlers (that’s tall cans to you and me), which they hand-fill themselves, meaning they advise consumption within ten days (probably nor going to be a problem, tbh). On the roster is Old Friend, a 4% ABV bitter, oatmeal stout Americano Dream and New Colours pale ale. The stout is also available as a mini-keg. 

All of Little Faith’s output that we’ve tried is full of character and flavour – just the job for a spring sesh. Order by the end of Tuesday for delivery on Wednesdays from their website. Click and collect is also available.

  • Bars and pubs
  • Breweries
  • Walthamstow

Walthamstow’s popular brewer is serving its community well with free local delivery to the following postcodes: E10, E17, E18, N16, N17, E4, E5 and IG8. The core range is all there, but you can also purchase packs of its special brews online to make drinking at home even more of a treat. You can also support the brewery by buying a bar tab for when you can next pay it a visit in person.

Southey Brewing Co
  • Bars and pubs
  • Breweries
  • Penge

Penge’s fantastically atmospheric Southey Brewing Company is offering free local delivery within 2.5 miles of the brewery if you purchase six or more cans. Delivery further afield (next-day where possible) is £6. There’s a revolving stock of different beers on offer. Try the Vietnamese-style lager A Hoi (4% ABV) or the Disco Illusion IPA (5% ABV), which should merit inclusion on its name alone. 

Order at www.southeybeershop.com.

  • Deptford
  • price 2 of 4

Deptford’s awesome indie brewery has launched a home-delivery service for south-east hopheads at home. Customers can order in by the crateload (£49.20), and mix and match from the core beer range. That includes their sessionable IPA Rafiki and Czech-style pilsner Whistle, each costing just over £2 a can. The brewery delivers UK-wide, and aims to get the brews to you by the next working day.

Howling Hops
  • Bars and pubs
  • Hackney Wick
  • price 2 of 4

While there’s no substitute for drinking beers that are ‘tank fresh’ at this Hackney Wick bar, drinking the product by the can at home is a good way as any to spend an evening chez vous. Howling Hops is offering next-working-day delivery on its intense and heavily drinkable brews, and there’s free delivery on orders over £50. 

  • Bars and pubs
  • Breweries
  • West Norwood

The south-east London saviour is not only offering free shipping on any order on beers over £50, but punters can donate a pint to the NHS via the brewer’s webshop while they’re at it. You can order a pack of 12 large beers from the core range for £28, and Gipsy Hill is also doing a pack of cans covered in cool illustrations by Millie Easton. Get ’em in!

Two Tribes
  • Bars and pubs
  • Breweries
  • King’s Cross
  • price 2 of 4

Delivery is free on all orders from north London’s Two Tribes. What you save on postage and packaging you can make up for with the option of adding a donation to the NHS amounting to 2 percent of your total spend. Mix and match cases of six, 12 and 24 beers, with prices starting from £17 for a six-pack.

Mondo Brewing Company
  • Bars and pubs
  • Breweries
  • Battersea

While Mondo Brewing Company might have retired its same-day delivery to locals for now (they can now collect their cans at the weekend), it’s still sending out its brews nationwide. There’s UK shipping, with free delivery on orders over £75. They also do mini-kegs so you can recreate the pub vibes while you catch up on ‘MasterChef’.

Hackney Church Brew Co

  • Hackney
  • price 2 of 4

If you don’t live close enough to pick up or visit the Hackney Church Brew Co bar – housed in a cute railway arch and with sun-soaked benches outside – its sessionable drinks can be sent to yours. Grab a mix-and-match six-pack for £20 or spend over £30 for free delivery. 

Partizan Brewery
  • Bars and pubs
  • Breweries
  • Bermondsey

Bermondsey Beer Mile’s Partizan is doing two- to three-day delivery all across the UK, so it’s not just Londoners who can enjoy sipping from their seriously stylish bottles (they’ll suit your coffee table to a tee, trust us). But lucky locals can get them quicker. They’re sent out to SE and SW postcodes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and to E, W, NW and W on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

  • Peckham

Those close to Peckham’s Brick Brewery can reap the rewards with free delivery on cans for orders over £40. Postcodes that have made the cut are SE4, SE5, SE15 SE22, and SE23. You can choose from its stash of seasonal sours and special edition collab brews or buy up a bundle of 24 beers for £48. And you can also donate to Southwark FoodBank while making your purchase. These guys are serious brewgooders. 

By The Horns Brewing Co
  • Bars and pubs
  • Breweries
  • Earlsfield

This Tooting taproom is keeping south-west London fuelled thanks to free delivery within a five-mile radius. While mixed cases of 24 cans for £48 should put a smile on your face, the fact you can throw in bottles of gin to boot might make the brewer’s webshop a winning go-to for your next stockpiling session.

Pressure Drop Brewery Taproom
  • Bars and pubs
  • Breweries
  • Tottenham

You can order a minimum of eight beers from the Tottenham brewery, with a next-day delivery on the cards for those within London. Crates of Pale Fire ale are currently on sale for £52 for 15 large cans. Order on the site.

Sambrook’s Brewery
  • Bars and pubs
  • Breweries
  • Battersea

Battersea’s Sambrook’s Brewery moved into swish new digs in Wandsworth’s ‘The Ram Quarter’ at the end of 2020, on the site of the old Young’s brewery (hence the ram, the Young’s logo). It’s like an Old Truman Brewery for people in boat shoes. Anyway, Sambrook’s continues to churn out decent quality ale that is available for delivery, Tuesday to Friday. Get a summery mini-keg or hunker down (eg under a table) with a 10.4% ABV Russian Imperial Stout. 

Order on their site.

Beavertown Brewery
  • Bars and pubs
  • Breweries
  • Tottenham

Cases of 24 of Bevertown’s eccentrically illustrated beers start from £40. Shipping is free for orders over £50. Try a super-sessionable Nanobot, or go hard with an 8.6% ABV Double Chin (£75 for 24) if you want lockdown to end with a bang, followed by a whimper. 

Order at www.beavertownbrewery.co.uk.
