This Saturday, we will be out in the sun at Hackney Summer Fete at St John at Hackney Church! Come and join us and enjoy what is set to be a brilliant summer festival! We have a wonderful line of stalwarts as well as a shiny new brewery making its London Brewers’ Market debut. Here’s the line-up:
The Five Points Brewing Company
The Five Points, who are the brewery behind London Brewers’ Market, will be bringing its new Five Points Pils to the party along with other favourites to enjoy at the Fete! Brewing their beer just off Amhurst Road since early 2013–a five-minute walk from St John at Hackney!–The Five Points have become an East London brewer well-known beyond the borough for their full-flavoured, classic brews in keg, can, cask and bottle.
One Mile End
One Mile End launched in October 2014 beneath The White Hart Brew Pub, Whitechapel, London. They quickly established a core range of excellent craft beers whilst simultaneously filling The White Hart’s taps with experimental one-off specials. 2016 marks their move into Tottenham on a bigger brew kit to amp up their core range and bring out some bigger, slightly off kilter beer this year!
Making their first foray into the London Brewers’ Market, Solvay Society takes inspiration from the The Solvay Conferences that brought together the greatest minds in physics and chemistry in the heart of Brussels, leading to some of the most fundamental discoveries of our time. Founded in 2014 by homebrewers Roman, a physicist, and JP, an engineer, Solvay Society are interpreting Belgian style beers with a modern twist.
Top folks brewing top beers, Hackney Brewery were established in 2011, making them the first registered brewery in their namesake borough. Creating a beloved selection of cask ales as well as a dynamic seasonal and craft range, Hackney Brewery are a hive of activity in their railway arch near Hoxton Station to supply the bars, pubs and bottle shops who stock their fine brews.
London Brewing Co.
Beginning its life in The Bull in Highgate , London Brewing Co. are now brewing a large range of ales in The Bohemia in North Finchley and have recently expanded to supply beyond the two North London brewpubs, much to the enjoyment of those elsewhere! See them at their stall for some special summery brews to be enjoyed at Hackney Summer Fete.
The Dalston-based 40FT launched in 2015 and have been brewing a selection of delicious beers in their shipping container, including their refreshing Larger. Pay a visit to their brewery tap room, which is also a shipping container and open on most Friday evenings and Saturdays–it’s a short bus ride away from the Hackney Summer Fete!
We’re happy to have the fine folks from Signature Brew back on board with us at London Brewers’ Market with their range of sonically-inspired brews. Based in nearby Leyton, their beers have been a popular feature at our London Brewers’ Markets as well as in several nearby pubs, bottle shops and bars. Tuck into some of their cans to fuel the rest of your weekend after the Fete.
London Beer Lab
Calling itself an open source brewery, London Beer Lab started in 2012, as a brewery making stellar brews as well as a resource to teach others how to brew their own beer! Courses and workshops are available at their location in Loughborough Junction and in Brixton as part of The Beer Hive.
Home Brew Depot
Want to get your start into the brewing world? See our friends at Home Brew Depot to get started with a home brew kit of your very own! Their brewkits are suitable for beginners, and if you want to improve your home brewing skills, ask them about their brew school classes.
London Brewers’ Market at Hackney Summer Fete will be running from 12 noon until 7pm in The Paddock area of St John at Hackney. The event is free entry, and there’s a multitude of events going on throughout the Fete, including craft stalls, street food, music, a vintage fair and even a dog show!
