On Saturday the 23 July 2016, the London Brewers’ Market was once again in full force, bringing 27 local breweries to the Old Spitalfields Market in East London. Drinkers survived unseasonably warm temperatures with a cold beer in hand, sampling a variety of examples and styles from breweries both familiar and new. It comes as no surprise that IPAs were prevalent, offering the perfect refreshing bitterness to temper the rising mercury as the afternoon progressed. Cans were king- from the new 360° designs to the 500ml tallboys- and there were some specific beers that were causing a buzz.
