Evening visit. World cup football is being shown on a big screen in the yard at the back and this has drawn quite a crowd. No cash taken at the bar here.
BeerABVScoreNotes
St John at Hackney - Imperial Stout Version 1 9.70ExcellentBlack, thick and sticky. Low carbonation from key-keg or keg. Liquorice and prunes. The best I have tried from this brewery so far.
St John at Hackney - Pale Ale Version 3 5.60GoodThe second beer to become available that has been brewed on site – and served direct from the tank. It’s a murky gold beer. Bitter fruit flavours.
St John at Hackney - Pale Ale Version 1 5.20AcceptableBrewed off-site, apparently in Germany. Cloudy gold. A keg fizziness detracts. US West Coast hops I think.

My first visit here and good to have a few beers with an old friend. I’m surprised to discover that most of the house beers have been brewed in Germany so far in the initial days of this brewery, although the fermentation tanks are now full of beer brewed on site. Around ten beers to choose from today.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Boxcar - PAL-016 Table Beer 2.30ExcellentFrom key-keg, brewed just a few railway arches away to the west. Low-strength, juicy murk – and I loved it.
St John at Hackney - Citra IPA Version 2 6.80GoodFrom a keg of some kind and brewed in Germany. An amber-coloured, hoppy IPA.
St John at Hackney - Lager Version 1 4.60AcceptableServed ‘tank-fresh’, having been brewed on site. Rather sweet and malty to my taste.

Website.

The pub is found in Hackney, Greater London, E8 1DU.

A micro-brewery and tap room located in a double railway arch in central Hackney, in an area that has been designated a ‘food and drink hub’. Opened in late-May 2018. There is a spacious indoor seating area beside the brewing equipment, a kitchen specialising in a kebab menu, and outdoor bench seating to the rear. No cask-conditioned beer is sold here, but some beer comes straight from the tanks. Open daily except Monday.

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