Nestled beside the canal in Hackney Wick, Crate has secured itself a rather cosy little spot in a soon to be booming area of East London. Housed in a former print factory, this craft brewery has been set up by a group of locals, who’ve built it all from scratch themselves. As well as offering a range of ales, bitters and stout that are all brewed on-site, their main draw are their perfectly turned out stone-baked pizzas. Middle-Eastern lamb, laksa chicken and truffle and sage are personal favourites. Friendly portions of topping, with arguably the best pizza base I’ve been lucky enough to taste, make for a winning combination. What’s more, with the weather finally turning to a more agreeable state, Crate offers a rather idyllic setting for a beer by the water. Firas
