My first time here and I was staggered at just how many people were present. Mostly a young crowd, some were feigning interest in televised rugby union on a large outside screen. It was a job to squeeze through the crowds to the bar, where I found Brewmaster Ben in good form.

40FT - Black Rain5.00AcceptableFrom key-keg. A kettle-soured Stout. Quite stunningly sour – it even smelled sour. Whisper it, but I think it might have been too sour, and it was a bit of a chore to drink.

The pub is found in Hackney, Greater London, E8 3DP.

A rough and ready venue close to both Dalston Junction and Dalston Kingsland railway stations. The brewery is situated in former shipping containers and operates a largely outdoor ‘Taproom’ at weekends, sharing facilities with adjacent businesses. Beers are sold by the pint only – no small measures.

We have visited this pub once, seen 1 beer and tried it.
