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.
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!
