A fantastic find in the heart of Clerkenwell, London, The Craft Beer Company has 16 cask ales available at all times, sourced from the UK’s finest independent micro breweries plus numerous fridges stocked full of up to 300 hundred bottles to choose from of equal quality. Each of the 5 beers that I had was fantastic. Well selected, high quality, a good range, well kept and well served. My favourites on the day were: The Kernel: India Pale Ale, Dark Star: Ardenne and FUBAR. The prices ranged from around £7 per pint (for the stronger stuff) to around £4 on average.
There was plenty of seating, upstairs and at the bar and wasn’t too busy on a hot, sunny Saturday afternoon, although I’m sure that due to it’s location The Craft Beer Company will be full during the week after work. The difficulty that I found was where to start. I knew that I wanted to try The Kernel but after that I had no idea. The staff were good enough to let me try a few before investing in a whole pint and although I could not have chosen a bad one, I found some real gems that I will be writing specifically about soon! I will be back and if I’m Brighton again, I’ll be sure to pop into their newly opened pub.
