What a great guide! I vad heard though that some places vad starter being open Friday nights as well. Is this not the case?


New: Cloudwater taproom, 73 Enid Street, London, SE16 3RA


Rebecca - Yes, quite a few of the bars are open on multiple nights. Because all of them open on Saturday, and that's the traditional day when people do Beer Mile tours, we initially decided to just give the opening times for that day. We've now updated the pages to indicate which bars are open on other days of the week. Be sure to check with the bars themselves, though, as they do sometimes change their times without updating their websites (or without telling us, the self-obsessed rotters).


Richard - We're on it, thanks! See new Cloudwater post as of 28/12/2018.


This has been great! Thanks for this. Heading this weekend and wondering if you saw any sport/screens that might be showing the 6 nations in any of the places?


Sam - I think Hawkes would be your best bet: their upstairs room with big telly did a roaring trade during the World Cup last year, and it looks like they're planning to do the same with the rugby.

The version of this comment I posted earlier today concluded with this sentence: "As far as I know, the only other bar on the Mile that's ever shown an interest in televised sport is London Calling Sweden, though I suspect that would only be useful here if Sweden suddenly became one of the Six Nations." Well, my apologies to the Swedes, because it looks like they're showing it too.

Hi Bermondsey Beer Mile,

I handle the comms for Bone Daddies. I'm getting in touch to ask whether you can remove Bone Daddies Bermondsey from the Bermondsey Beer Mile? We are not a part of it, and it creates disappointment for those who read this and believe we are.

Thanks in advance,
Clemmie, Bone Daddies


Clemmie - hope you're happy with the compromise of keeping Bone Daddies in here, but making it clearer it's a restaurant rather than a brewery or bar. Don't forget to eat, readers!


Good guide! I've been doing the Mile since it was just Kernel and Partizan but it changes so much these days even going several months between visits, so very useful to have a guide that is kept up-to-date.

For after-mile evening beers I could recommend The Other Room on Tower Bridge Road, and for food The Grange Pub although these are about a ten minute walk from the core of the Mile.


Bianca Road Brew Co have just moved to the mile as well. 83 Enid Street, putting them between Brew By Numbers and uBrew.

More info here... and on their Instagram...

Hi, is there many open on Monday 5th May around lunchtime? Cheers

Warren Joss

Monday 6th May, sorry


Luke - Thanks for letting us know. I've put a placeholder on this page for the new bar, and we'll pop round to review it at some point in the near future. Best of luck to them/you (delete as appropriate).


Warren - My guess would be that most of them will be closed - a lot of them don't open on Mondays anyway, and it wouldn't make much difference whether it was a Bank Holiday or not. Bear in mind a lot of these places are working breweries first, bars second, and they like to take holidays too! Still, each bar is a separate case and will have their own plans. Probably best to check their individual websites and associated social media feeds and see what their plans are.


Cheers thanks for your reply chum
