Whilst everyone was sitting with their coats on as far from the door as possible when I visited a couple of weeks ago, tonight they are all out in the yard wearing T-shirts.

Iíve read a lot about this place recently and was pleased to make a first visit. Very impressive. For some reason I shunned a favourite cask beer to try a couple of the keg thingies.

Lervig - Easy DDH IPA 4.50ExcellentFrom a keg of some kind. A wonderful, murky, golden IPA with Mosaic and Citra.
Verzet - Oud Bruin Raspberry Harvest 2017 6.00ExcellentFrom a keg of some kind. Dry and woody and fruity and sour and expensive.

The pub is found in Hackney, Greater London, E9 5LN.

A very large new bar, opened in former industrial premises close to Hackney Wick Station in early 2018. There is a large, split-level main bar, with another big room beyond and a courtyard seating area at the front. Beer sold in a variety of formats, including through 20 taps and two handpumps on the bar.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 6 different beers and tried 4 of them.
