This pub was chosen editorially as one of the top 10 best craft beer pubs in London, 2014.
Of the five Craft Beer Co pubs in London, we reckon this one is probably the most pleasant in which to enjoy a drink. That said, there’s not much to differentiate them – they all serve the best part of three dozen draft beers on cask and keg, often featuring imported brews that are not available anywhere else in the UK, and they all stock hundreds of different bottled beers (as well as a fine selection of lesser types of beverage).
In our view, however, the Islington Craft Beer Co feels more comfortably ‘pub-like’ than its immediate siblings, with an agreeable ambience across three rooms, and a nice little beer garden. Food is very much limited to the ‘snack’ end of the culinary spectrum, but they’ve been known to offer decent pork pies and scotch eggs. Oh, and look out for the Periodic Table of Beer.
