London Brewery Tours and Beer Tastings

About Us

At the Rambling Beer Co., we love to explore London!

Hackney Wick Brewery Tour and Beer Tasting

Join me, Jo (pro-brewer) on a London Brewery Tour and Beer Tasting around some of the best microbreweries in Hackney, East London.

The microbreweries near me in Hackney Wick are a creative hub of craft brewing, with some of the best breweries and taprooms in the city. We’ll visit Crate Brewery, Howling Hops, and Old Street Brewery and enjoy a beer in each before finishing up with some cheese and beer in Beer Merchants Tap.

I’ll show you around some of my favourite beery haunts in this buzzing area of East London, all while drinking delicious craft beers and chatting about all things beer.

Monthly beer tastings at Tuck Shop Hackney Wick

Each month I run a beer tasting at Tuck Shop, an excellent one-stop-shop in Hackney Wick that stocks the finest beers, wines, cheeses and meats. On these tastings, we try six different beers each month taking in a range of styles and breweries from around the UK and the world. These are great fun, informative and relaxed evenings – come join the beery merriment!

Hackney Brewery Tour

Join us for a tour of Hackney Brewery followed by a tasting including five beers in their fantastic High Hill taproom, part of the Blackhorse Beer Mile. You’ll learn about the brewery, the beers, how they’re made, the history of the styles and a load more from Jo, a brewer and beer expert who used to brew at Hackney Brewery (so he knows the place and beers well!).

Founded in 2011 when there were only around 20 breweries in London (there are now about 140!) Hackney Brewery was part of the first wave of craft breweries in the city and has continued to evolve and adapt in the years since to become one of the best breweries in town. From pale ales, lagers and IPAs to imperial stouts and sours they produce a diverse range of excellent beers, including regular collaboration brews with leading breweries from around the UK and further afield.
