London’s so-called craft beer revolution shows no sign of slowing down. That said, with supermarkets and chain pubs steadily starting to show some love to small-batch brewers, a change of direction at least seems inevitable.
So what’s the next big thing for the city’s hairy hop addicts? Start making your own. But you can forget dodgy home-brew kits and bathtubs full of brown swill, and head instead to Ubrew, a first-of-its-kind facility under a pair or Bermondsey railway arches.
Working on a membership model, Ubrew offers London’s beery masses the opportunity to brew their own bevvies, by providing access to industry-quality kit and ingredients. To find out what it takes to produce a decent drop, Time Out met Ubrew’s Matt Denham for a crash course in craft beer.
