Founded in 2011 by the amazingly-named Logan Plant, son, believe it or not, of Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin’s lead singer for the uninitiated), Beavertown was the old Cockney name given to the historic De Beauvoir area in London. The Beavertown brewery was set up in Duke's Brew & Que - a pub in De Beauvoir, Hackney, which quickly became famed for its authentic American BBQ and punchy craft beers. The first thing you notice about a Beavertown brew is the packaging - futuristic, apocalyptic and totally entertaining whilst you enjoy your beer. They have an excellently variety to try, including a black IPA (!) and a smoked porter. If those sound a bit too experimental for your tastes, try their Pale Ale and Session IPA.
