Beer Guide London Visits 27 – East London

The Friday of the long Bank Holiday weekend saw me riding the District line to it’s final stop at Upminster and a day exploring the far Eastern reaches of Guide territory. A ten minute walk from the tube station brought me to the first stop of the day, Upminster Tap Room. This is a slightly larger than usual micropub with a good range of cask […]

Don’t be fooled by the market stall appearance, this place regularly has one of the best beer lists […]

The area around Hackney Wick station in particular offers a good little crawl with virtually no walking required. And the fact I can get the train direct from Richmond […]
