Caps & Taps
Richard Ehrlich

Phill Elliott and Stephanie Palgrave-Brown used to work in accountancy (him) and film and events (her). In the autumn of 2014 they went on a four-week ‘beer holiday’ in the US, visiting small breweries in Oregon and California. The offspring of their trip is Caps & Taps, Kentish Town’s first craft beer specialist. This is a tiny place but it sells around 300 beers from London, the rest of the UK, the US and the rest of the world. Look out for relative rarities: Burning Sky Cuvée from Sussex, Stone Old Guardian from Southern California, and Barrel-Aged India Hells Lager from nearby Camden Brewery. Fans of esoteric US beers are particularly well served.

Amazing staff, eclectic selection of beers, and walking distance to where I live. Can't ask for more.

I like how it sounds like a Glaswegian saying 'cops and tops'.

Who knew there were so many kinds of beer? If you want something unusual, to enjoy by yourself or amaze and astonish your friends, head to Caps & Taps where the knowledgeable and friendly owners will help you find just the right brew for you.

Excellent selection of brews, great prices, topped with friendly and knowledgeable service. These guys rock!

Amazing selection of beers, and absolutely lovely, super knowledgeable staff :)

Super service from a friendly team and some real rare beers from all over the world

The staff are helpful without being patronising; they respect the fact that everyone is on their own "beer journey".

Really incredible selection and the owners are a friendly font of knowledge and advice. The place to go for beer.

Caps & Taps is the best! I visited during Oktoberfest and got pissed up with the owners because they are the neatest guys.

Beautiful collection of craft ales and lagers, run by lovely people who really know their stuff.

First class craft beer shop, which gets my vote for both its range of gluten-free beers, but also the helpfulness of the staff.
