The Taproom at 163 Upper Street, Islington N1 1US.

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
