Pint-sized pub launches in London

A craft beer specialist claiming to be “the smallest pub in London” has opened close to Piccadilly.

Measuring 15×20 feet, The London Beer House offers a rotating selection of nine keg beers alongside a range of bottled and canned beers.

There is a particularly strong offering from UK brewers such as Redchurch and Fourpure in London, the Naked Beer Co. in West Sussex and the Northern Monk Brew Co. in Yorkshire. Initial listings from further afield include Icelandic beer from Einstök, Bavarian offerings via &Union and US representation in the form of the Stone Brewing Co.

The Charles II Street venue, which also operates as a shop, has been created by Nathan Lowry, founder of the nearby Pall Mall Fine Wines bar and merchant, with products supplied by Sussex-based distributor The Beer Collective.

Introducing the concept and its mission, London Beer House manager Gary Furey explained: “We want to concentrate on beers from independent breweries; these are the guys that are changing people’s perception of beer.”

Despite its small size, The London Beer House plans to host regular events, as well as being available for private hire. Among the early initiatives planned are a series of brewing courses, as well as a four-day beer festival at the end of August, whose tasting line-up includes a craft beer and cheese matching session with beer sommelier Phil Harding and London cheesemonger Paxton & Whitfield.
