This is turning into a pubcrawl.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Anspach & Hobday - The Triple Mashed Mild3.90ExcellentFrom key-keg. A tasty Mild. Caramel and toasted malt.

Early evening. Great to find the handpump in use tonight.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Anspach & Hobday - The Ordinary Bitter3.70ExcellentA particularly good Bitter, as you might expect from this excellent brewery.
26 Oct 2018 (Stephen Harris)
An early evening visit. The single handpump here is again not in use tonight.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Anspach & Hobday - The Experimental Gose3.30ExcellentFrom keg. Cold, fizzy, cloudy, golden. Sour and salty – the authentic taste of Leipzig (insofar as my distant memories suggest).
Anspach & Hobday - The 4th Anniversary Baltic Porter 7.30ExcellentFrom key-keg. A heavy, bitter, black Porter with lots of liquorice.
28 Sep 2018 (Stephen Harris)
Early evening, before the crowds build.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Anspach & Hobday - Das German Session IPA 4.80ExcellentFrom key-keg. Golden and crisp and clear. Very fresh. Bitter hop flavours.
Anspach & Hobday - Oso Brew Co. Citrus Cream Ale 3.00ExcellentFrom key-keg. Oso is a new brewpub in Madrid, although the initial beers have been brewed here in Bermondsey. This is a clear, golden beer with a full mouthfeel and good hops.

Hot and busy in here tonight. Great to hear that they still have a good relationship with Bullfinch Brewery. Nothing on cask today.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Bullfinch - Apollo 2: Cascade 6.00ExcellentFrom key-keg. Cloudy gold and smells fantastic. Taste backs it up – fresh and hoppy.
Anspach & Hobday - Dark Side of Papa 6.60ExcellentFrom key-keg. Good another Black IPA. Quite heavy and rather lush.
06 Oct 2017 (Stephen Harris)
My first stop on a short Bermondsey brewery stroll.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Anspach & Hobday - Das Schwarzbier6.10ExcellentFrom key-keg. A nice strong beer in the German Black Lager tradition. Not far removed from being a malty Porter.
Anspach & Hobday - The Pale Ale4.40Not TriedFrom cask.
07 Jul 2017 (Stephen Harris)
Mid-evening until last orders.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Anspach & Hobday - The Experimental Miami Weiss 5.50ExcellentFrom key-keg – Hazy pale gold. A very well-hopped Wheat Beer.
Anspach & Hobday - Pacifica IPA 6.10GoodFrom key-keg. Amber-coloured and well-hopped. Quite harsh hop flavours I thought.
Anspach & Hobday - The Pale Ale4.40Not TriedAvailable from cask.

Mid-evening visit. The handpump is not in use today. Not over-crowded.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Anspach & Hobday - The Experimental Mango & Chilli Gose 3.10ExcellentKey-keg dispense. A cloudy yellow colour, so salty that it smells salty. Starts fruity and becomes chilli-dominated. Bursting with flavour.
05 May 2017 (Stephen Harris)
Very cosy in here tonight.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Anspach & Hobday - The Session IPA (Centennial, Ekuanot, Waimea) 5.10ExcellentCask conditioned and brewery fresh. Golden, clear and full-bodied with great hop flavours.
Anspach & Hobday - The Jackson IPA 6.00GoodFrom key-keg. A cloudy, amber colour. Seemed a bit cold and fizzy after the cask beer, but clearly has good flavours.
10 Mar 2017 (Stephen Harris)
A job to squeeze in here, with a couple of big groups present.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Anspach & Hobday - The Three Threads6.00ExcellentFrom cask. Dark brown in colour. A very mellow Porter with toasty flavours.
Anspach & Hobday - Story Saison5.00ExcellentThe brewery’s third anniversary special beer, from key-keg. Really good – I thought I was tasting pineapple.

The pub is found in Bermondsey, Central London, SE1 2HH.

One of the line of railway arch brewers in Bermondsey. Anspach & Hobday initially trial-brewed on the nearby Brew Wharf plant, before launching their own brewery here in January 2014. At the beginning, they shared their small premises with Bullfinch Brewery, the latter subsequently setting up on their own at Herne Hill. The brewing kit is to the rear of the arch, with a bar area and beer garden-style trestle tables at the front. Part of a busy Saturday market area based around Druid Street.

We have visited this pub 22 times, seen 37 different beers and tried 36 of them.
