Bermondsey Beer Mile

The Bermondsey is district in London east from Tower Bridge, and for some reason a many microbreweries are brewing there. Most of these breweries are open to visit only at Saturdays, and that is the recommended day to do the Beer Mile crawl. Following listing assumes you start from east and move to west.

Bottle shops

It is somewhat surprising there are just handful of bottle shops in London, when taking account there are so many people living here. Perhaps part of the explanation is the fact that pubs are allowed to sell take-away bottles and growlers. Anyway, there are some and I have found these to be worthwhile visiting.
