Beavertown Brewery was founded in 2011 in Hackney. Beavertown was the old cockney name given to the historic ‘de beauvoir’ area, famed across Victorian London for its rich characters and infinite revelry.
Gamma Ray, Beavertown Brewery, London
I’ve been to Beavertown on several occasions, but this was my first taste of beer from there. Gamma Ray is in keeping with a great many of London’s craft beers in that the bitter oils from the hops are front and centre. There is not a lot of weight to the mouthfeel. The hops are grassy and there is a top note of an elderly gentleman’s cologne. It’s done well if you like this style, it is not subtle and I couldn’t finish the bottle. 5/10
