Top 10 London craft breweries

Camden Town Brewery, Camden Town


Good for: Lager lovers

Known fore its eye-catching labels, Camden Town Brewery has made quite a name for itself since bursting onto London’s craft beer scene in 2010. It was founded by Jasper Cuppaidge who boasts a heritage in brewing, his grandmother being Laurie McLaughlin who ran McLaughlin’s Brewery in Rockhampton, Australia, from 1910 to 1960, along with an estate of 60 pubs.

Cuppaidge started Camden Town having become frustrated that one of his favourite beer styles, lager, was getting “short thrift” in the beer market. “Most of what was available was bland and fizzy and anything half decent was imported, expensive and seen as a bit exclusive. No wonder lager had a bad name,” he said of his motivation to start Camden Town. Cuppaidge has since made it his goal to “make lager, to make lager better, to make lager recognisable and to make lager great.”

The brewery’s flagship lager is its 4.6% unfiltered Hells Lager made using pilsner malt and perle and hallertauer hops.
