Brick Brewery's come a long way since opening in 2014 — now rivalling many of the breweries on the not-too-distant Beer Mile.
These day Peckham's kooky under-arch brewery can lay claim to being one of the finest purveyors of sour beer in London, as demonstrated by its 20-strong-tapped taproom.
Here you'll discover such tart tantalisers as blackcurrant, elderflower and cucumber & strawberry sours. But if puckering up isn't your vibe, fret not — a competent menu includes the likes of pils, steam beer, milk stout, brut IPL and DIPA. And then there's a fridge full of cans and bottles too. You won't go thirsty.
It's snug in and around the bar, but if you can't find a repurposed key to perch up against, two 'gardens' — front and back — provide plenty of wooden benches. Yes, they're essentially car parks, but this is Peckham — so get with the programme.
Excellent burgers are served up courtesy of Slow Richies, who have a permanent residency here. They even make condiments using Brick's beer.
Given that this twixt-arches vicinity of Peckham Rye now has three cocktail bars, a Saturday food market and various other bits and bobs going on, you could happily while away an afternoon, as the trains rattle by overhead.
