No doubt, the best beer bar I have ever been to in London. Its quite a thrill to walk into this street corner pub and see the great line-up of pump clips displaying 16 cask ales followed by some very interesting keg beers, and added by hundreds of bottles in the printed beer menu. What a great place to be, comfortable and relaxing. Exquisite hosting from Tom and the young barman. During a few splendid drinking hours I had five cask ales, one from keg (house lager from Mikkeller), and shared three bottles. All the beers were in perfect condition and were served at a fine drinking temperature. Great music, not too loud American grunge, that was to my liking. I came alone on an early Monday afternoon, but was soon joined by other ratebeerians like Miksu, hanniku, oh6gdx and DJMonarch. Thanks for the great time, guys. (Visited, 1st August 2011).

Its just opened, yet I already feel that Craft Beer Co. is probably the best beer-bar in London. I have already visited multiple times and its only been open a few days. The interior is very well done- they have kept the traditional features that make this pub unique and have carefully introduced modern elements. A particular highlight is the mirrored ceiling. The draft beer selection is second to none - 16 casks of interesting UK micros and 21 kegs from quality worldwide craft breweries. The taps and handpulls dominate the modest bar space. Beer condition is great, but what else could you expect with The Cad being in charge?! Its great to see 3 taps of Lambic in the UK. The bottle list is not as extensive as its sister pub - Cask Pub and Kitchen, but is well thought out and contains some gems (including Alesmith, CCB and some Japanese craft brews). The spirit selection follows their craft ethos. They also offer some premium scotch eggs and pork pies, which offer sustenance while trying to work your way through the draft list unsuccessfully. Awesome.

CBC is located in a great spot of Clerkenwell in central London. This is the younger sister of Cask Pub and Kitchen. The offerings on cask and keg are ridiculously good. The beer is always in great nick, these guys know how to handle their product. The bottle list is very good, not to CPKs standard, but probably the second best in London. Seating can be difficult to obtain if you show up on a Wednesday-Saturday evening. Their upstairs room can get really hot and stuffy. As the pubs located on a quiet street, many punters opt to drink outside. Prices are quite high, but Im happy to pay for the quality. Food options are minimal (scotch eggs, meat pies) and expensive, but good if youre willing to splurge.

Visited many times - and will be back next time in London. Absolutely one of my favorite beer-spots to visit, whenever I am in London. Lovely 2 storage cornerpub, rather easy to get to from almost everywhere in London ( or thats what I feel.. ). Even though its a spacy pub, it can be rather crowded at times. Beers in good condition, superfriendly staff, thats know theit beer histrory. Cosy atmophere, you really feels beerlovers around you. Lovely ceilling of mirrors, I think a lot of people have taken pictures of it!!!.. They do from times to times have like meet the brewer / brewery events.. They have a few bar snacks, but you cant eat here. See you next time in London :-)

Best range of beers around. Big rank of handpumps dispensing ever-changing top notch UK beers. Keg beers, often esoteric imports, that you will not find anywhere else in London, except maybe the Cask. Massive choice of bottles but I rarely get tot hose. Great staff (and management). Prices are reasonable, particularly for the cask beers. Keg beers can be pricey but you have to be prepared to pay a bit extra for this stuff. LImited food. Can get crowded, especially after work on Fridays. Unmissable.

Visited on a saturday lunchtime and I was the only customer, so hard to give an ambiance score. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and a huge, varied selection, especially on draft.

Great place, great selection and good service. Sadly, we did not have much time so we had to concentrate on the best of UK beers. Will definitely visit again! (Visited November 16th 2012)

This place was def. one of my best experiences in Lodon. Giant selection of FRESH casks and ciders (Crouch Vale, Moor, Thornbridge, etc.) and lots of interesting foreign beers both on draught and bottles. Quick service and fairly priced. Dope.

Probably THE place in London. Huge selection on tap and bottles, lively atmosphere, if its get to crowded downstairs, take the stairway to the first floor and cool down in the relaxing lounge. Also good for some bird spotting as well!

Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Great selection of cask/tap and bottled beers. I could live in the cellar. Thanks Tom. This is a cant miss stop whenever in London.
