Crate Brewery

If you want to find the place where almost everything about hipster London peaked, it’s right here, on the banks of the Lea Navigation in Hackney Wick. This pizzeria and brewery is peak beard, peak tattoo, peak warehouse living and peak craft beer – but that’s no bad thing. Sure, the service can be a little surly and all the bar staff are better looking than you, but that’s life.

The beer, being visibly brewed on site, is varied and tasty, with a good selection of international craft ales on hand to boot. In the winter it’s all about the super-crispy pizzas with innovative toppings, and the live jazz; come summer though the crowds spill out on to the banks of the Lea, with families of fowl and narrowboats tootling past – this is proper East End bucolic.
