Truman's Brewery

Until the late 1980s beer in East London was synonymous with Truman's brewery until the company folded and disappeared from our pubs. It was thought that the black eagle on the pump clips would never been seen again until 2013 when in Hackney Wick they started brewing once again. Theirs is a story just like any great drama containing elements of success, failure and now renewal just like a modern day Lazarus.

Despite supermarkets stocking some good craft beer it is not quite mainstream enough for there to be a decent selection to choose from, therefore a visit to your local bottle shop is proabably the best way to get your hands on some. An added benefit is that you get to talk to someone in the know and use their knowledge to help inform your journey of discovery through the craft beer revolution. I decided to pop into one of my local stores and asked them about their buying policies and what they look out for in new beers and how they try to support the customers so they get their hands on what they want.

Rogue Drinks

Through a desire to go against the grain and do things their own way Rogue drinks have been pushing the boundaries of imagination for craft beer. The ground to glass approach they have really is something to be admired as this gives them total control over what goes into their products.

In a quiet corner of Cambridge two brothers are trying to create something a bit special. Sam and Tom Calverley who have setup a new microbrewery in Cambridge  producing artisan beer for local pubs and patrons. They have been operating out of 23A Hopper Street, CB1 2NZ since 2014 and after having been keen home brewers decided to make the switch to trying to be full time micro-brewers.
