London Fields Brewery will be unveiling its new brewery and taproom this September, bringing brewing back home to its Arches for the first time since 2014.
The team will be throwing open the doors to unveil new spaces and a new line-up of beers on September 6, welcoming back guests from the local community and beyond.
The all-new taproom will serve brewery-fresh tank beer ranging from IPAs to traditional lager styles and seasonal sours. In addition, to match the broad selection of brews, London Fields Brewery has brought Prairie Fire BBQ on board.
Luke McLean, London Fields’ pop illustrator, will be adding his psychedelic art pieces — including a Love Not War wall mural — to the social spaces. There will be a regular programme of beer events, tastings, and brewery tours. There will also be a take-away beer offering, including canned versions of the small-batch releases brewed onsite.
London Fields head brewer, Talfryn Provis Evans
Over the past year, head brewer Talfryn Provis-Evans has been designing the new brewery from the ground up, while he reworks the London Fields core line up of Hackney Hopster, 3 Weiss Monkeys and Broadway Boss. He has opted for custom-built brew kit chosen in consultation with the team at sister brewer Brooklyn Brewery, which will enable the team to make any style of beer, from pales and IPAs with more juiciness, more aroma and more bang for your buck, to a small batch programme of seasonally-inspired sours and saisons, and a series of experiments in low- to no-alcohol fermentation. The ethos, as ever, is to brew ‘flavourable’ and balanced beer that’s inclusive as well as fun to drink.
Recent brews that are a testament to this direction are: I Heard it Brut the Grapevine, a brut IPA with grape juice, Champagne-like carbonation, and a crisp, dry finish; Hallogen, a tart ‘raspberry smoothie’, notable for being brewed with zero hops; and Sisters Brewin’ It For Themselves, an alcohol-free dry-hopped sour.
Provis-Evans said: “We’re really excited to open the brewery this summer and bring it back to its original home for the first time since its relaunch. We’re hoping the new site will become a strong pillar within the community and an open, creative space for future collaborations.”
