A proper end of the week atmosphere in here.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Street (formerly Queen's Head) - Stop Wining6.50ExcellentFresh from the tank. The principal flavour is white grapes.
Old Street (formerly Queen's Head) - Pinot You Didn't6.00GoodFrom a keg of some kind. Another beer/wine crossover drink.
24 Sep 2019 (Stephen Harris)
One of the few taprooms to open on a Tuesday, and it's drawing a decent trade. Lovely brewing smells here tonight.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Street (formerly Queen's Head) - Rodmeister Generale7.50ExcellentA strong, hazy-golden, US West Coast style IPA. Bitter, with aromatic hop flavours.
Old Street (formerly Queen's Head) - Something Strong8.80ExcellentFrom key-keg. A strong, smooth DIPA.
29 Aug 2019 (Stephen Harris)
Quite late in the evening and we sank into a couple of deep armchairs that I think might be new additions to the furnishings.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Street (formerly Queen's Head) - Eau de Wakatu5.20GoodFresh from the tank and distinctively hoppy.
01 Aug 2019 (Stephen Harris)
The taproom is full of lovely brewing smells tonight.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Street (formerly Queen's Head) - Crazy Turtle5.50ExcellentFresh from the tank. A full-flavoured Pale.
04 Jun 2019 (Stephen Harris)
The enlarged brewery is now functional and the bar is busier than I expected for a rainy Tuesday early evening.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Street (formerly Queen's Head) - Gnome Parade8.00ExcellentA strong IPA. A very slow keg pour with minimal carbonation. It's a murky gold, soft, fruit smoothie thing with minimal bitterness.
26 Apr 2019 (Stephen Harris)
A flying visit.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Street (formerly Queen's Head) - Limone Life5.40ExcellentFresh from the tank. Cloudy gold. No surprise to find that it is very lemony.
03 Mar 2019 (Stephen Harris)
Relatively quiet here on Sunday afternoon. New equipment (ex-Presure Drop) is being installed to increase brewery capacity- so guest beers only today.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Deviant & Dandy - No Figgity Stout8.00ExcellentVery full-flavoured.
01 Feb 2019 (Stephen Harris)
A busy evening session. It's good to see how this venue is developing.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Street (formerly Queen's Head) - Yum Yum Juice5.50ExcellentDirect from the tank. Murky gold. A citrusy Pale Ale with Rakau, Waimea and Huell Melon hops in a really nice blend.
Old Street (formerly Queen's Head) - I Need More Dates7.00ExcellentDirect from the tank. Black and a little bit flat. Dates, honey and lactose.
Deviant & Dandy - No Figgity Stout8.00ExcellentA strong Stout with added figs.

There are two Old Street Brewery beers available direct from the tanks tonight, alongside several guest kegs.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Street (formerly Queen's Head) - Desert Sunrise6.70ExcellentA pale beer, well-hopped with Citra and Mosaic. It also has a pleasant fruitiness which I discover comes from cactus.
Old Street (formerly Queen's Head) - Yum Yum Juice5.50Not Tried
16 Sep 2018 (Stephen Harris)
Early evening on a relaxed late-summer Sunday.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Street (formerly Queen's Head) - I'm So Brutiful6.70ExcellentCloudy gold, full-bodied and dry.

The pub is found in Bethnal Green, Greater London, E2 0EJ.

Old Street Brewery began life in 2016 and for a while brewed on a very small kit in the cellar of the Queen’s Head pub near King's Cross railway station. In early 2018 the brewery was relaunched in a railway arch very close to Bethnal Green tube station. A taproom area has been developed at the brewery which now opens daily except Mondays. No cask conditioned beer is sold at the Taproom.

We have visited this pub 13 times, seen 19 different beers and tried them all.
