MUST DO: Beavertown Brewery’s final 2017 fling

And Leyton’s very own Deeney’s is dishing up the sarnies to soak it up

Despite our long-held love for local London breweries, for some inexplicable reason we didn’t get round to checking out the industrial estate that houses two of our regular pub faves – Beavertown and Pressure Drop – until this autumn.

The catalyst? Why, a visit to the much-hyped but actually pretty good Walthamstow Wetlands. From there it’s a ten-minute stroll – and well worth it, too.

Our only tip for BB virgins (ahem) is to get there early, as the seating quickly vanishes, especially, we imagine, this Saturday, as it’s the last afternoon of carousing before the breweries break for three weeks over Xmas.

1,2,3…boo! But at least Beavertown are going out with a bang – with the usual ten or so keg offerings in handy two-third pint glasses (we still find it hard to stray from the superlative Gamma Ray) at very-reasonable-for-London prices too.

Peckish? None other than Leyton’s mighty Deeney’s is on hand to dish up the alcohol-absorbing carbs.

And you could even, um, tick off a bit of Xmas shopping at the same time – what with those stylish cans ready to give to the boozy beer lovers in your life. (You’ve now justified an afternoon on the sauce.)

Finally, post-Beavertown, don’t forget to walk round the corner to check out the equally excellent – if a little more relaxed – Pressure Drop brewery, too. Hic.

This is box title
Beavertown and Pressure Drop Brewery bars are open 12-8pm this Saturday (9th Dec) at 17-18 and 6 Lockwood Industrial Park, Mill Mead Road, Tottenham Hale, N17 9QP
