Orchid Vanilla Mild

Posted By Claire Ashbridge-Thomlinson in News

Unfortunately, we’re having to take a break from brewing Orchid, our Vanilla Mild, as we can’t get hold of the vanilla pods we use to brew it at a price to make it viable. Prices for the pods have sky-rocketed by over 400% in the last 6 months and global vanilla supply is way down, a combination of factors including bad weather, political instability and an influx of market speculators. We’ll be brewing a final gyle for cask in the next few weeks, so get your orders in!  

Gosh it's nearly Christmas already.

Walthamstow Beer Project 2016

Posted By Hannah Davidson in News

A few weeks ago we had a little hop picking and live brew party with the Walthamstow Beer Project and now the time has come to tell you all about where you can drink it!   Around 200 Prima Donna hop plants were lovingly nurtured in gardens and allotments across Walthamstow throughout the summer, and in mid-September the beautiful bines were brought over to brew this year’s green hopped ale. We will be at Ye Olde Rose and Crown, E17 on Thursday 6th October from 6.30pm to celebrate the Walthamstow Beer launch and drink some tasty ale. The brewery team will be...

A QUICK UPDATE ON BREWERY NEWS

Posted By Claire Ashbridge-Thomlinson in News

Have you tried our bottled special, 'barbed Wit yet? It's a limited edition wheat beer, brewed in collaboration with Organic Lea -- who provided the locally-grown organic rhubarb -- and it's made with organic malts and hops. Grab some soon, as we won't be brewing it again before next years' rhubarb season! On other news, our Pale Ale is now available in keg format and coming out to pubs and bars around London very soon... Hope you enjoy in this lovely weather!

So after some trial and error (we are much, MUCH, better at beer than IT) our Online Shop is up and running!  You can buy our entire range of bottled beers and have them delivered directly to your door, wherever you are in the UK and beyond! It is also possible to buy our beers as gifts and have them sent directly to your friends and loved ones across the lands. Our merchandise is currently sold out but we are expecting a delivery very soon and we'll let you know as soon as the new hoodies and t-shirts are in. ...

Pearly Queen - Limited Edition porter

Posted By Hannah Davidson in News

We had a little think recently, and set about to combine our love for traditional styles and our adoration of all things London. This naturally led us to thinking about Porter and its rich, complicated and intricate history with London, and the old breweries that dominated the East End back in the day. Pearly Kings and Queens are synonymous with London history, from the formation of the founding families to the well known Cockney rhyming slang and the pearl button embroidered suits.  We wanted to make a classic smooth and dark porter, with a nutty coffee flavour and creamy mouthfeel, with a...

Three Kings

Posted By Hannah Davidson in News

So we've been super busy the last few weeks making our Three Kings Christmas ale. Three Kings 3.8% is a full bodied pale session bitter with loads of Jester hops for a tropical grapefruity and lychee fruit punch aroma, with a full mouthfeel and crisp bitter finish. We wanted to brew a beer that had all the flavour and drink-ability of a big IPA without the high alcohol content! Now pouring at several local pubs: follow us on @Eastlondonbrew on Twitter

Hackney Wick Football Club

Posted By Hannah Davidson in News

A few weeks ago we were delighted to become a sponsor of Hackney Wick FC. Founded by Bobby Kasanga, HWFC is a fan owned football club, set up to celebrate the diversity and community spirit of Hackney. The idea came to Bobby Kasanga during a gang crime related prison sentence, when he turned his life around and decided to give others the opportunities to do the same. The team are heavily involved in charity work and motivational speaking to local schools and youth groups, to help young people achieve their full potential. HWFC also has a community scheme where they reach...

Rugby World Cup - Presenting H

Posted By Hannah Davidson in News

  In the spirit of celebration we have created a special beer to quaff during the Rugby World Cup! H is a 4% abv red ale, brewed with East Kent Goldings and Fuggles for a spicy autumnal aroma, with a moreish malty red fruit and digestive biscuit body and refreshingly crisp finish. We launched it last week at The Duke, Wanstead and generally decided it was delicious. You can find it in a pub near you!
