Beer Pub Camden East

Quite roomy place with a heavy Brewdog theme as you can probably see from the logo. No Japanese craft on tap, but they did have four taps of imported craft beer. On my visit they had Stone, Mikkeller and Brewdog on. Tap information is on their website and looking at this it seems they do sometimes have Japanese stuff on. [Thanks to James for pointing out that they have increased their number of taps. They now can have up to ten beers on. Check their website for today's taplist]. Probably around 50 bottles on the list, mostly imports again, selected from the breweries above and other similar ones. Three serving sizes, half (200ml), regular (400ml) and pint (568ml). Pricing varies beer to beer, but Punk IPA was at the lower end (¥580 for half, ¥860 for regular) and the others were around ¥720 for a half and ¥1200 for regular, so not the cheapest place, but I guess it is imports. Happy Hour (weekdays, 17:00-19:00, weekends, 12:00-17:00) gives you ¥200 off bottles and draft. Nine seats at the counter and 20 or so at tables but has quite a roomy feel. Very reminiscent of Brewdog bars with the bare concrete. There is one of those little smoking areas where the smoker stands next to a strong extractor fan which doesn't work perfectly, but is better than nothing. No cover charge, but tax is added on the bill, so it's a little more than stated above.

Japanese breweries on tap when I visited:

This is a good place for lunch at weekends. They do good hamburgers for as little as 750 yen and the happy hour lasts from opening until 5:30 at weekends.

Sorry. The happy hour finishes at 5pm on weekends.

A quick update. Beer Pub Camden has just upgraded a bit. There are now ten taps (only 8 were on when I last visited). Everything else is the same, but there is now a lot more chance of decent Japanese beers being available.

Hi Hamish,
Thanks for pointing this out. I've updated the listing.
