About the Pub

Opened in August 2017, this is the first sister establishment of the award-winning ‘liquid delicatessen’, founded in 2005 in East Twickenham. The difference is that, whilst primarily a takeaway bottle, can and keg beer in 'growlers' shop, here a selection of the wares on offer is available for consumption on the premises. Beer is available in measures of 1/3 and 2/3 pint only, so intended for sampling prior to purchase of larger quantities by the litre to take home. Real ale is available via keycask including a house Moncada Formosa Pale. Those wishing to sample modern keg beers, light years removed from R*d B*rr*l and T*nk*rd, would do well to start here. Spread over two floors, the shop includes limited seating for those trying the beers. Events include 'meet the brewer' sessions as well as tastings for private groups.

There is also a varied selection of wines, whiskies, etc.

Hours shown are understood to be the on-sale service times: the shop opens at 10am each day for off-sales.
