Brewing East began in early 2016 with a focus on the beer drinking culture in East London. Inspired by a number of beer blogs and writers, it intended to offer a relatable voice and experience of London’s emerging craft scene. It has since evolved to cover a range of beer events, spotlight features on breweries and beer culture across the city. It also occasionally shifts further afield, offering insight into how beer is enjoyed in varied landscapes.
The blog continues to be driven by genuine curiosity and aims to reveal how accessible beer is to all. It’s written from the perspective of someone learning about beer in a light-hearted tone, hoping to be insightful without being too technical. It aspires to make you thirsty for a great beer.
Rebecca (Bex) has been living in London since 2006 and based in Stratford, East London, since 2013. Turned on to craft beer in the early days of The Horseshoe pub in Hampstead- when Camden Town Brewery operated out of the basement- she’s had an insatiable appetite for interesting styles ever since. After spending enough time in taprooms across London and meeting other passionate drinkers, she began writing about her experiences.
She has contributed beer-related features to the Beer Bods journal, Time Out London, YEAST BERLIN and acted as the Brand Ambassador to the Belgibeer subscription box service. She is a contributor to the London Brewers' Market blog, curating and compiling the popular monthly events round-up. She is a member of the British Guild of Beer Writers.
Bex also undertakes freelance work as a digital consultant in the beer industry and oversees digital marketing, online presence and curating content.
