Windsor and Eton


Now Windsor isn’t strictly in London – nor is Eton, for that matter – but W and E qualify as Londoners on two grounds: they’re members of the London Brewers’ Alliance and they make some truly excellent beer. Two in particular deserve a mention: Conquerer, a black IPA which stood out among the spate of similar beers that emerged in 2011, and Republika, a lager produced in collaboration with Tomáš Mikulica, who runs Pivovarský Dvur, a brewery just outside Prague. The result is a pilsner that puts most better-known efforts to shame.
