The best and most relaxed of the Olympic big screen venues I have visited – probably because it is not ‘official’ and therefore has room for independent food and drink suppliers. This bar provides a very good selection of London-brewed beers on gravity dispense. The only drawback is the high prices, which limited me to a pint and a half.
Windsor & Eton - Eton Boatman4.30ExcellentFull-bodied golden ale with strong citrusy hop flavours from Citra and Galaxy hops.
Botanist - Limey Porter4.80ExcellentThis is a strange beast, a dark brown, winey porter flavoured with lime and kaffir leaves. It really worked for me.

About the Craft Beer Rising

The pub sign. Craft Beer Rising, Greenwich, Greater London

Summary of Beer Scores


The pub is found in Greenwich, Greater London, SE10 9NN.

Even just a couple of years ago, a venue such as this would simply have been called ‘The Beer Tent’. Such is progress that these places are now “Pop-Up Bars” and have their own names. This is one of (and by far the best of) the bars at the Greenwich Summer Festival, in the grounds of the Old Royal Navy College. Set up in conjunction with Brockley Market and the London Brewers’ Alliance.

We have visited this pub once, seen 24 different beers and tried 2 of them.
