Hackney Beer Academy by BrewDog
So, I had seen that BrewDog Brewery are requesting permission from Hackney council to open up a small brewery/beer academy/bar in Dalston. Read more about it here. It’s intriguing and also quite overwhelming as BrewDog has opened up two bars now in London (and many more around the country) and they’re taking over the space where Mason & Taylor was just up until Sunday (they’ve already started construction). Thoughts beer folks? (Special thanks to @marionren for making sure I was aware of this tidbit of info!)”
Oh Hello! That sounds pretty ace.
The proposal got turned down by Hackney Council. I don’t know if it’s a location issue and if it is I really do hope they find another location.
I’d imagine it would have something to do with the council implicitly supporting alcohol consumption, which some residents would be against. If its a credible business then Im sure they can find a private residence to brew from, and I for one hope they do.
