Beer and circuses

IMG_0277Belated congratulations to Wansteadium reader (and sometime cricket correspondent) @nutterlane (Dan Clapton) on the successful launch of the Wanstead Tap, a kind of virtual microbrewery which had its first outing at this weekend’s Wanstead Farmer’s Market.

Rather than brewing his own, Dan sold a range of bottled beers which are made within a Volvo ride’s distance of Wanstead, including Little Brew from Camden Road, Pressure Drop from Bohemia Place (E8), Hackney Brewery American Pale Ale, Night Watchman from the East London Brewing company, the London Fields brewery, and the Wildcard Brewery from Higham Hill.

We’re pleased to report it was a sell out (in a good way). This could be a green shoot of economic recovery.

  1. One feels that Dan should move wholesale into one of the many vacant premises available in Wanstead and begin serving his plethora of ales in a speakeasy-type setting. I’m sure it would have a number of the more refined imbibers of the area blowing the froth off a couple in no time.
