An American bbq diner come craft beer joint rolled into one in a very small pub in the middle of Hoggarston.
I’ve been here a few times. The first I got utterly smashed with Glenn from Alvinne whilst drinking the whole range of whatever the brewers were providing for me to sample. This was not going to be a fair review so I had to come back when I was less drunk to conduct a fairer review.
Cue myself; Danko and Martin from Stoke. The three of us were able to grab stools by the bar and select a beer from the menu. The Moor Revival was on tap so I ordered two. Unfortunately the barrel had just ended so we only paid for one half. This is excellent service.
We continued to go through the tap range. Beer is mostly keg and premium prices but not too expensive considering how much beer can go for these days.
The service was as ever extremely attentive and drilled. The bar was very busy with food customers as much as us. It does get very cramped there as it is a popular hang-out.
The decor is very pleasing. A lot of vintage classic items with an old vinyl record; an open kitchen so you can see them work, the beers all used to be brewed onsite but now are all brewed in Hackney near the Olympics’ Stadium.
I also noted a wide range of carefully chosen bottles. They could do with some more lambics and some other classics but the attention to detail for a place which is more of a restaurant than a craft beer bar is very good.
If you want to go somewhere to people watch and sip locally made craft beers with customer service which is dedicated for you then this is ideal. I need to go back for the food now.

Had really been looking forward to visit this place. This saturday I had the chance. This is first of all a barbacue place...and I ll be damned - off cause I havnt seen the fance barbacue places in the states, but this place blew me away with their ribs, pulled pork and more. Damn. Besides that this place have a very nice selection of local london and english brews on tap and a fine selection of bottled beers. I had some Kernel , Alpha State and some of their own Beavertown. If tired of beers they also do great cocktail. Stylish and trashy in a some how modern way. Prices quite low. Great place I would love to revisit.

Visited in May ’12 not long after they opened the establishment.
Restaurant seating to the left as you enter, with kitchen on view, bar seating to the right - by the bar.
Roughly a 75/25 split in favour of the restaurant which in essence what this place is.
Tap for the Beavertown brewery - all of whose beers to date have been solid.
Other guests on cask included beers from Oakham and Roosters. 30 or so bottles mainly from the US and UK.
My visit was on a Friday and the place was very busy - they allowed us to sit in the restaurant for an hour until 7.30pm when a reservation was expected. Fair play for this.
We shared some decent hot snacks as well - the main food also looked good, BBQ, burgers etc.
Well worth popping to but book a table in advance if you want to eat.

Great bbq restaurant-cum-brewpub located in Haggerston. The place itself is modern and stylish with a focus on quality barbequed food and micro-brewed beer. It is more of a restaurant than a pub to be honest with you. They brew the Beavertown beers just round the back of this place, so expect to see a wide selection of their beers on tap and in bottle, as well as some other UK microbrews. The food is delicious, amongst the best American bbq in the UK. The ribs in particular were outstanding. Great place all-round. I will most definitely be returning.

A stylish and trendy brewpub with a focus on food.
Dukes is more of a restaurant than a pub, although it does have a bar at one side. It was very busy when we visited on a Sunday afternoon but we were shown to one of the tables with a reservation sign on it. It would have been quite comfortable and relaxed, had it not been for the waiter coming over at regular intervals to remind us that we’d have to be out by the time the people who’d booked the table arrived.
The décor is nice, if a little quirky – for example, there’s a pram occupied by plastic baby doll with tattoos and piercings near the kitchen and brewery. The food smelled and looked good.

Laid back pub in an area we hadn’t visited before, but seemingly very popular. Set up for dining, it was difficult to find an unlaid table empty, so we had to agree a leaving time with the waitress, not sure I like that, but it is a warm, comfortable building, spacey and well worth visiting if just for the range of beers.

We visited here on Saturday 3rd November 2012 in the company of my dad and Jackie & Simon who had also suggested this as a new place for me & Loz to go to. Situated adjacent to De Beauvoir Town, it is quite strange to see a place like this here, however it looks like this area could well become hip and trendy. The bar itself does seem to focus more on food however there are a few stools, the bar area and the odd leaner (is that what they are called?)for having a beer. This place was really busy in the middle of the afternoon on a Saturday, the food looked good and virtually everyone was eating aside from us. The bar staff were very friendly and made us really welcome despite the business of the place, The beer choice seemed to be about 4-5 of their own beers complimented by a healthy number of other beers such as Tiny Rebel and Moor when we were there. This place was a truly interesting find as I said you really wouldn’t of expected a place like this situated where it was. I didn’t walk all around the place as it was busy but to give you some idea of geography, as you enter the bar is immediately to your right and what I would consider to be area reserved for drinkers is to be found here, whilst the rest of the place which doglegs off but is actually straight in front of you when you enter appears to be for those wishing to eat. In terms of what beers we had, I had Beavertown America F**k Yeah a decent stab at a pumpkin beer, Loz had a Beavertown Gamma Ray, my dad a Moor So’Hop, Simon had the same as me, I am not sure what Jackie had however she purchased a cool brewery T shirt . Well worth a trip, beer was good, welcome good, food looked rustic BBQ and/or Grill type food but good!

Visited this place 5/8-2012, on a lovely pubcrawl, with friends :-)
This gastropub have a big selection of the Beavertown Beers. They also have a rather good selection of bottle beers.
The place is more an eating place than a drinking place, especielly in the evening. We didn´t eat there, but the menus looking very good, so for sure at place to come back to.
Great deko at the place, lots of old stuff, nice staff ( and lots of them...)
Had a few seatings outside as well.

Duke’s Brew & Que is an excellent brewpub located close to Haggerston Station. Despite being a very popular place, the ambiance is laid-back and relaxed. My most recent visit was on a very crowded Thusday night. The staff handled the throngs of people with grace and composure, I never felt hurried or rushed from my table. The selection of beer is small, but strong. The house brews are excellent. Despite being a tiny operation, I’m convinced that these guys amongst the best breweries in London. Their smoked porter, Smog Rocket, is a particular standout. There’s guest beers available too. The food is fantastic barbecue, and I don’t mean that just by London standards. The prices aren’t exactly cheap, but the food and drink’s good enough that I think it demonstrates good value. Overall, a recommended place. One to seek out.
