Although Spar is a chain all over the country, the one in the Village in Walthamstow is really unusual for beer. Along with the usual suspects (Hobgoblin, Greene King etc) it has a wide range of Brodies, London Fields Brewery, Samuel Smiths and other interesting stuff. Also good European beers like Weihenstephan, and some US and Aussie stuff like Brooklyn Brewery, Little Creatures etc... Nothing hard to find except Brodies, which is local.
edit: July 2015 - this place has gone further in a craft direction - selection changes all the time but regularly has plenty of interesting stuff from the likes of Beavertown, Kernel, Thornbridge, Partizan etc... really unusually good for the location
