I have no idea if this is true. It is my own research, rumour, speculation and hearsay based upon an anonymous comment on my London Ale Taster Blog.
Are we about to see a bar in central London packed with beers from Thornbridge, Brewdog, Dark Star and Marble ?
The guys responsible for the Sheffield Tap are hooking up with the Bloomsbury Lanes people, a central London bowling alley, to open The Euston Tap.
This is taken from the Bloomsbury Lanes web-site :
Craft beer anyone? The Euston Tap is set to become a mecca for London’s beer drinkers
The team behind the Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes and Fleet River Bakery has joined up with well the known beer aficionado Jamie Hawksworth, to open a unique craft beer house in London.
The partnership has secured the stunning Grade II listed West Lodge in Euston Square, which will feature 20 draft beers from small producers.
The Euston Tap’s objective is not about stocking the wackiest beers from around the globe nor the biggest list, but a mission to bring to London the best draught real ale and craft beer available. Not an easy task, when many of the best independent breweries on the planet don’t export or have limited output.
The bar has its own website www.eustontap.com which is thin on content at the moment but it is already hooked into my favourites.
Beer lovers from London have done their (tiny) bit towards making the Sheffield Tap the stunning success that it has quickly become. That effort has brought us this reward.
Opening late October - Bring it on !
