Scotland’s largest indie brewery has chosen a Camden backstreet for its first foray into London’s burgeoning craft beer scene. The old Laurel Tree pub, latterly a sushi bar, has been stripped back & the focus has shifted onto a cast of Aberdeenshire-brewed ales. Crude graphics & studenty names – Trashy Blonde, Punk, & Hardcore – set the ‘jokey blokey’ tone, while even more hardcore brews such as Tactical Nuclear Penguin & Sink the Bismarck – at a mind-blowing 32% & 41% abv respectively – are not so much beers as Scotland’s own nuclear deterrent. Otherwise, try Mr Miyagi wasabi stout or a brace of porters from a head-banging offer of 150 bottles & 20 draughts including De Dolle, Struise & California’s Lagunitas (hitherto unavailable in Britain). Burgers, pizzas & platters come courtesy of MasterChef winner, Tom Anderson. One for geeks & geezers, if not Gucci loafers.
