CLEAR YOUR SATURDAY PLANS.
We hit the Bermondsey Beer Mile as part of our epic 5-day trip through Brussels, Bruges and London – which you can read about here.
The Bermondsey Beer Mile is an unofficial crawl of breweries that’s tucked under a stretch of railway arches, and spans about 2 miles long. There are more breweries than there is time in a day, so I am just going to highlight the ones we stopped at. Of course, this is a choose your own adventure sort of thing so do not take this guide too seriously. I suggest going where the wind blows. Something to note, these breweries are only open on Saturday’s, so plan your trip accordingly.
However, we do suggest starting your day at the Maltby Street Market to lay down a nice layer of food before you completely destroy your stomach on alcohol, a solid base. This is probably the best food market in London, so take your time and eat everything you can. The pork gyozas are something I still think about it…

This is the point where we had to call it quits. It was an absolutely awesome day outside and we had so much fun popping in and out of the railroad arches to sample all of the great beer London has to offer. 10/10 would do again.
We definitely did not hit all of the stops – here is an unofficial guide with all of the breweries listed - https://www.bermondsey-beer-mile.co.uk
