Tap East’s own beers are in sparse supply just now as they are recruiting a new brewer and stocks were much depleted by the crowds attending recent athletics events.

Early evening and full of shoppers.

Tap East - Tonic Ale3.00ExcellentThe HBC431-hopped version of this beer. Very fresh.
Bristol Beer Factory - Fortitude4.00GoodA malt-led Amber Ale. Way above average for the style I thought.
Legitimate Industries - Timeshare Scam4.50GoodFrom keg. Cloudy yellow/gold. A well-hopped Wheat Beer. Very tasty although a bit over-carbonated for my tastes.

Sunday evening after the crowds have gone. I spent time chatting with a friend who had enjoyed a day exploring the pubs of Sandwich and Deal and had just arrived back in Stratford on the Bullet Train.

Squawk - Sorachi Stout7.10ExceptionalBlack, with a brown head. A beautiful, full-on, dry, roasted Stout with lovely Sorachi Ace hop flavours. Perfect.
Tap East - A.P.A. (American Pale Ale) 4.30ExcellentIn top form.
TicketyBrew - Summer IPA6.00GoodGolden. Obviously a strong beer, but not as full-bodied as you would expect for the abv.

Quite late in the evening, but before the place is swamped by people coming out of the athletics meeting at the nearby Olympic Stadium.

Brief early evening visit. Not too busy despite a local athletics event. Keg beers here at amazingly rising prices, a Japanese one at £9.50pp and a 5.5% Arbor at £7.50. And people are buying!
