Brixton’s growing craft beer reputation

… and there’s more

If you’re still thirsty after those, here are some more quality breweries and taprooms and bottle shops to visit in the area:

Affinity Brew Co – Found at The Grosvenor Arms, 17 Sidney Road, SW9 0TP

Craft Metropolis – Arch 263, 241 Coldharbour Lane, SW9 8RR

Ghost Whale craft beer shop – 70 Atlantic Road, SW9 8PX

Bullfinch Brewery – Arch 886-88, Rosendale Road, Norwood, SE24 9EH (Brockwell Park end)

Canopy Beer Co. – Arch 1127, Bath Factory Estate, 41 Norwood Road, SE24 9AJ

And, of course, there’s the Craft Beer Co on Brixton Station Road – famous for 15 minutes recently for selling (or not selling) Britain’s most expensive beer. A75ml bottle (same as a wine bottle) of Reforged 20th Anniversary Ale made by the AleSmith Brewing Company in San Diego would set you back £105, equivalent to £80.15 a pint. Buy it to take away and you get a third off.
