Londoners are well known for their passion for beer… Good beer!
That’s why in the last decade we’ve seen a huge increase of home made beers being brewed in London.
The Bermondsey area has not been the exception and now there are five brewery taps. It looks pretty cool as the breweries are located in railway arches. And the ones who take the most advantage of this flourishing scene it’s us, the drinkers!
So every Saturday you can attend the ‘Bermondsey Beer Mile’, also known as ‘Craft Beer Mile’ which includes five brewery taps, one next to the other. The places are only open on Saturdays and from the late morning until 3 or 4 pm only. It really depends on the day as some may stay open until 6 pm.
So what about the breweries?
The first stop of the crawl is the Fourpure brewery, founded in 2013. A London based family brewery. They say that is important to stay true to the principles of brewing – respecting the four core ingredients used to make beer: grain, yeast, hops and water. This was the inspiration for the name Fourpure.
