"The beers are better than ever but the brewery's event space is equally as impressive. "Review Rating: Reviewed by T.A.O
There’s no point in going to all the trouble of starting your own brewery if you can’t create your own space to enjoy the spoils. London Fields Brewery would never countenance such an idea, which is why in a railway arch off of London Fields, the brewery have expanded their outfit into a drinking and events space.
While beer is at the heart of everything here, there is much more to see and do in these railway arches. In fact, on our most recent trip there was the Feast in the Fields, Backyard Cinema and a few seasonal brews on tap – London Railway Arches haven’t seen this much action since Phil got punched into the garage pit in Eastenders circa 1998.
Along with beers like Hackney Hopster, 3 Weiss Monkeys, Love Not War and the Black Path Porter, London Fields Brewery hosts the aforementioned food feast and cinematic events. Backyard Cinema utilizes a space next to the brewery itself, screening classic and cult movies. Food vans line up to fill stomachs with offerings of Korean burritos, pulled pork, jerk chicken and risotto balls.
There are large areas of seating in the brew house and the covered courtyard with regular DJs and live bands playing to the space. Set up in 2011 to counteract the dearth of Hackney microbreweries, the London Fields Brewery is now part of a craft beer revolution that has taken over London. But while beers obviously lie at the heart of the Brewery, the venue offers much more from its home in London Fields.
