Big fan of the group. This one seems a bit slack. Keg selection has been limited by out of order taps for several months. Whatever the problem, they have had time to sort it and havenít. What kegs they have are unadventurous. Since they opened, Brixton has become an ever bigger draw for food and drink; they are not really contributing to this. It seems they are content to rest on their past reputation and that of CBC bars elsewhere.
Situated a few mins from Brixton tube station this is probably the smalllest of the London Craft beer Emporia.
A small bar has pulls on the bottom and keg taps along the top and a small seating area inside and out. Upstairs there are more tables and seating. Visited on a busy Saturday evening in December managed to get a seat. Decent range of beer in good condition as ever.
Good place and an improvement on Brixtonís offerings
Small one room bar off Brixton market. It lacks the charm and comfort of other Craft bars, and on my visit just after opening the two staff looked disinterested and kept to themselves. However, beer selection was good and a similar range to what to expect at the sibling pubs. Had an interesting beetroot Berliner Weisse from Evil Twin here. A good view of the hustle and bustle of market days outside.

Very nice place with very good selection of brews both on tap and bottled. Good service, good music. A bit small in space thoug, but the good beer can make you forget that.
Large pub within walkable distance from Craft Beer Co. Clapham. A tad loud, even if not too crowded, but nothing problematic. A good amount of place to sit. Music isnít too loud. Service was quick and friendly. Pretty good selection. Prices are good for London and the same as other Craft Beer Co. A really nice pub. One of my least favorite Craft Beer Co., but only because the other are awesome. Note from the missus: very good initiative to have moisturizer and quality soap in the ladies toilets.
Amidst the intense and magnetic chaos of Brixton stands a gem of a bar. Keg and bottle outnumber cask, and all the usual suspects are here: Kernel, Siren, Thornbridge, Magic Rock etc. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Great venue, great location, great beer.
The weakest and newest of the Craft Beer co, the small and soulless bar is disappointing. The range is good if lacking behind its siblings and the venue just isnít nice enough. When compared with the Crown and Anchor also in Brixton itís a poorer cousin. The location and bad itself is the biggest let down.
A good pub in absolute terms but, relatively speaking, this is the weakest link in the Craft Beer Co. chain. The Brixton outpost never seems to have the most exciting beers compared to its siblings. The value is average, the staff always pretty friendly. The space itself feels a bit more cramped than the other CBC locations. Meh. I donít come here often but if I lived in the neighbourhood it would be the best option.
