The London Beer Factory are raising the bar.
By opening one on a rooftop.
Because this summer, they’ve launched The Bussey Beer Garden, so called because it’s on top of the Bussey Building in Peckham. And because there’ll be beer. A lot of beer. After all, the London Beer Factory don’t exactly make daffodils; they’re supplying 15 taps of their own unfiltered brews (ranging from their easygoing Chelsea Blonde, to their bracing Paxon IPA, to their nitro-aided Sayers Stout) to pour alongside barleypops from across the UK.
The space itself has been put together by absurdly cool designers The Syrup Room, who’ve turned it into a colourful beer garden in the sky, with long communal tables buttressing the extraordinarily well-stocked bar from which they’re pouring all of the aforementioned hop-nectar. And because no beer garden would truly be complete without the smell of BBQ… there’s a BBQ.
That part of the operation is being run by The Babek Brothers, a Devon born-and-bred pair who’ve traveled from “Istanbul to Lucknow” perfecting their kebab recipes, including the likes of the slow-cooked pork shoulder Notorious P.I.G., the lamb-loaded Kim Koftashian, and their glorious feta & paprika fries.
Which should inspire a little more than three cheers.
NOTE: The Bussey Beer Garden will be back this May. You can find out more on their website HERE.
