First came the toilet roll hoarding and then it was the sourdough starters. If – like us – you’re still attempting to cling onto some sense normality, then this guide might help. Beer garden not an option? Rooftop bar off-limits? We feel you. Here’s the best of London’s bars and breweries that are delivering craft beer direct to your doorstep so that life in lockdown isn’t all that dry.
🍻 🍻 🍻
Though their Bermondsey Basecamp may currently be closed, Fourpure Brewing Co hasn’t stopped there. Get your hands on all their favourite cans, with spirits, snacks and merch in the mix too.
Dalston’s favourite micro-brewery is migrating to delivery with the closure of their taproom and a focus on beers to straight to addresses in East and Northeast London. Check out 40FT Brewery’s webstore where you can buy cases of lager, as well as bar tabs for NHS workers.
Not only is Beavertown Brewery touting a sick spread of merch (think bucket hats and space-themed tees) but the Tottenham favourite is also on hand with over 15 different beers from Gamma Ray to Neck Oil and the brand new Nanobot. The icing on the foamy cake? Printed pint glasses and reusable cups.
Deli Cat & Sons
Now operating from Leman Locke, Deli Cat & Sons is the hotel restaurant and bar that's been transformed into a one-stop-grocery-shop where you can order everything from pasta and cheese to fruit and meat. On the drinks front, it's spirits, wine, beer from Mondo and Sassy cidre.
Taking to Deliveroo and Slerp, Beer + Burger is dispatching buns, fries and wings; all accompanied by wine cider, spirits and beers. There’s even a non-alcoholic brew if you don’t fancy the hangover.
While Bethnal Green cocktail bar The Sun Tavern is dishing out quaffable drinks on the cocktail front, they haven’t forgotten about the brews either. They’ve got bottled beers, lucky dip boxes and sparkling cider from parent company Umbrella Brewing.
The weather’s getting warmer and we highly recommend that you hydrate. With all sorts of ciders, spirits and beers (think IPAs, sour ales, pale ales, porters and beyond), BrewDog is here to keep you watered whatever your postcode.
Whether you like yours hoppy and fruity or dark and smooth, Camden Town Brewery has something to appeal to your tastebuds. Transform that backyard into your very own beer garden with something from the online shop, before tuning into one of their pub quizzes.
Delivering everything from limited edition cans and classic pilsners to the ‘pub in a box’ which features beer, glassware, pub snacks, curated playlists and a music quiz, Signature Brew is all about the party. And when this blows over? The E8 hotspot is throwing a huge knees-up in their brewery.
Offering free shipping on all cases, Small Beer Brew Co is the place for citrus notes, malty flavours and classic styles. Still thirsty? Their monthly subscription service will take care of that.
Forget the week-long waiting list and delayed dispatch because Rebellious Goods is upping the ante with home delivery within 60 minutes. Yep, you heard. That includes beer, cider, spirits and wine.
Finsbury Park’s finest wine bar has pivoted to delivery with the likes of Boxcar, De Ranke and Cloudwater beers under its belt. If that wasn't enough, Top Cuvée is also stocking top-notch wines, cocktails from sister bar Three Sheets, dried goods and hot food like pasta and sticky toffee pudding.
This Deptford micro-brewery is sending bevs straight to your home with delivery available all around the UK. Hit up Villages for pale ales, pilsners, IPAs or mixed cases.
With direct drop-offs to addresses across the city, The Kernel is one for proper bottles. We’re talking dry stouts, brown ales and old-school London porters available for pre-ordered delivery from the southeast brewery.
We’ve got more where that came from. Check out our latest campaign DeliverMyNight.
