1. London Fields Brewery 374 Helmsley Place, London, E8 3SB (Hackney)

Conceived by a pair of barley-pop enthusiasts over a pint of the very thing they're so enthusiastic about, Fields is housed in an open East London space with its own outdoor seating area, where they'll be crafting six different beers, a number whittled down to after an initial "experimental mass fermenting effort" -- oddly not a euphemism for uni.

4. Camden Town Brewery Bar 55-58 Wilkin St Mews, London, NW5 3NN

This brewery's hop-house is a Spartan, stripped-wood affair, with kegs for tables, and walls bearing such proud decorations as a pair of giant foam fingers and a "beer map", where nights always head south.

6. CRATE Brewery The White Building, Unit 7, Queen's Yard, London, E9 5EN (Hackney)

Beer & pizza is the most unbeatable combination this side of whoever China puts out for synchronized diving, which is why CRATE is making both onsite in its expansive, Olympic-adjacent space, which is decorated like a really creative tornado ripped through a scrapyard, along the way upcycling bed springs into lighting and wooden pallets into seats.
