13 of us set of from view tube on another sunny day for a tour this time of South London Breweries. First port of call was however the Husk Brewery in Silvertown–a rare Newham brewery! (Where another rider joined us) We then moved south of the river using the cable car that accepts bikes on board – I still get excited of the great views of London from the high points!
–we then visited more breweries on the ‘Bermonsey beer mile’ as well as stopping at new Bianca brewery that had cycle themes, bike friendly owners & even a brewery tour of the new Spartan brewery where riders quizzed brewer on brewing process.
We then crossed river again via the iconic (but busy) Tower bridge to visit the recently opened Old st brewery in Bethnal green for our final tasting stop of day. We then crossed Victoria park passing Peoples tavern (Laines brewery) finally Crate Howling hopps & trumans & those remaining back to view tube on greenway!
In all we covered over 20 miles & visited 20 breweries/ tap rooms & 1 Cider house!
