Unexpectedly interesting... looked like a regular back street pub but its quite the beer experience.

Central bar has many hand pulls and a board explaining the wares. Around the otherside is a full on brewery kit.

Garden looked nice - which might be handy, as they allow all tables to be reserved.

Beavertown Neck Oil sampled for the first, and probably last time. What's all the fuss?

Situated in an area that is unrecognisable from 30 years ago, having undergone savage gentrification and now home to the likes of Boris Johnson and Kiera Knightley.
There's now a trendy blue/grey colour scheme with dark mood lighting courtesy of modern sconce lights and filament bulbs. Music played at a mid level and furniture is conventional with large tables to the rear. Behind the bar is a large stainless steel brewkit, though as I couldn't see a reference to its contents on the board, I assume it's just for decoration. The crowd here is dense, even early week and is mainly young Islington hipster types.
Not surprisingly for a craft ale pub there's a huge selection of ales on keg with three now available on cask as of last November, all advertised on a large board stating name, brewery, ABV and price. Not noticing the cask options, I went for the Rooster's Yankee Pale Ale which was probably what Mr. Man ordered below, judging by his description and my similar experience.
The Watney's bar-back is a nice touch but the Island Queen and even the George all around the corner are more tempting, so I might be back. Might be...

Maybe this is the future of beer.The exterior of this pub has wonderful brown glazed tiles,and the front doors open directly onto the bar,with various handpumps and wall taps all unmarked.Select from the list in large lettering to your left.On my trip there were 13 craft keg beers from many of the leading small scale brewers,2 cask ciders and 3 cask ales namely Tiny Rebel Morning Glory ,Redemption Rock the Kazbek and Big Chief (on top form).Behind the island bar there are some brewing vessels but no sign of production and besides a drinking shelf to the right of the pub,most of the tables and chairs were traditional with more room behind the bar including some bench seating.French doors lead to a beer garden.The pub was packed with young professional who really enjoy beer in all it's forms and I plan to revisit and chance my arm on some of the stronger keg options next time.It's hip and probably a bit too lively for many CAMRA types,but it does showcase beer in all it's glory.Wealth warning ....it's not cheap although a Cloudwater Baltic IPA 7% was "only" £3.50 the half.
