The blog

Brewing East launched in early 2016 with a focus on the beer drinking culture in East London. It aimed to offer a relatable voice and experience of London’s emerging craft scene. It has evolved to cover a range of beer events, spotlight features on breweries and beer culture across the city. It also shifts its gaze further afield, exploring how beer is enjoyed in other countries.
