A Brewhouse in Bermondsey.. who'd have thought!? This isn't just a fancy wanna though, this is the real McCoy. Their recipes are all for meticulously crafted and brewed beers using only the perfect, natural ingredients and bottled alive to maximise flavour and drinking experience. Two friends came up with the idea, and boy, didn't they do well!

Meet the brewers and drink the freshest beer in Bermondsey
We visited on a sunny afternoon and found the place rammed with a mixed demographic you might be surprised to find here. The old beer-bellied, CAMRA obsessive stereotype is nowhere to be seen and instead there is a range of personalities that reflects the popularity of craft beer. We suspect that the fun of Brew By Numbers is ever so slightly weather dependent. There isn’t a great deal of space inside the arch, which is all about function – the function of brewing beer, to reiterate – so the large crowd spills out along the pavement. All well and good on a balmy day in June but probably not so much fun on a wet Saturday in February.
The glasses here require a deposit, which is understandable given the fact that they happen to be extremely covetable drinking vessels. Curved in all the right places, these sensually shaped glasses are an absolute dream to sip from, never again will you feel the same way about the dull formulaic lines of the straight pint glass – too much? Anyway, bring cash to swap for the glass and then sample away. We started with the Wheat Beer and moved onto the Session IPA and left when it closed its doors at 5pm; sun kissed, woozy with beer and happy.

For when craft beers aren't crafty enough
Brew By Numbers took a note out of the Kernel’s book and set up their brewery in Bermondsey to become their neighbours. They too open their doors every Saturday, when they give you a chance to come and sample their latest brews and eat from their latest food pop-up.
