Ross Smith and Micheal Fabbri: Edinburgh Previews
WELCOME
Welcome to The Taproom in the heart of Islington.

The Taproom came on the scene as a temporary licenced premises back in 2012 serving just cask ale. We opened for 6 weeks at the current premises. Our aim was to bring quality cask ale from around London and the UK to the people of Islington. The project was a instant success, so in 2013 we decided to make it permanent.

The Stillage

We decided early on that we would like to keep the casks on display but this is easier said than done when conditioning and temperature are taken into account. After many months of design we came up with a draft plan and found a company that could build it for us. The outcome is what you see today, a temperature controlled stillage, gravity dispensing cask ale in perfect condition every time. There is less than half a pint of beer in the line between the cask and the glass.

8 x Gravity Cask Ale

7 x keg lines

Eleanor Tiernan: Enjoying the Spotlight Responsibly

Curled in up bed, Eleanor binge-watches true crime, completely insulated from the actual crime outside her door. The gap between what she could be doing and what she is doing has never been bigger. But her smartphone is about to be stolen and then she'll find that the real world can mock us far more savagely than any online fantasy. Join Tiernan (BBC Newsquiz, Alternative Comedy Experience) in an exploration of what, if any, satisfaction can be found and whether she's willing to endure the requisite amount of discomfort to get it.
