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 20 times, seen 29 different beers and tried them all.
