I was just talking about how there isn’t enough breweries in the midlands recently but thanks to a friendly man in the BrewDog BottleDog shop in Kings Cross he recommended me Buxton Brewery. There was a plethora of beers I could’ve gone for by Buxton Brewery in BottleDog (big up the wide selection of beers) but I went for a high ABV IPA, of course. Buxton is based in Burton in Derbyshire and was founded by Geoff Quinn in 2008. There are around 14 core beers and there’s a lovely tap room where you can try all the beers. Must. Go.

I particularly like the Camden Wit and Camden Pale Ale and for someone who dislikes “lager” I actually quite like the Camden Hells.

The Five Points Brewing Company are a relatively new microbrewery based towards Hackney Central station in between Rectory Road and Hackney. They opened this year with three varieties including the Five Points Pale which unsurprisingly is my favourite. Although the porter is really lovely, too. Following a series of opening events down at the brewery Five Points have been slowly building their excellent reputation.
