Very buzzy, lots of vibes. A real oasis of beer in Hackney Wick. All their own beers on tap naturally plus interesting guests such as Thronbridge black IPA Raven, and lots of nice things in bottles including Wild Beer company, Belgium.
Pizzas didnít seem that great, and could have done with another minute in the oven to crisp them up, but excellent place nonetheless.

We visited Crate Brewery Tap on Saturday 2nd May 2015. It was very easy to find, we got to Hackney Wick via the Overground from Stratford and once you alight at this stop you can see the Trading Estate where itís based immediately below and ahead of you. So you walk out of the station turn left and at the first left (itís just a few yards) turn left again and follow this road down past the skate park on your RH side through the No Entry part of the Trading Estate, (donít worry the No Entry sign concerns vehicle movements only) the brewery is ahead of you on your RH side. It is housed in a large white building as I recall (and it is a building as opposed to a more typical functional unit) it backs onto what I though was a canal but what I believe is actually a section of the Lea Valley navigation. On entry the bar is ahead to your right and is set at a jaunty angle, sort of diagonal to the layout of the building. If you continue you can get to the rear of the building where there are a number of bench seats and tables looking out onto the water. Beer choice was mostly their own beers on tap with a Burning Sky and Fyne Ales offering. The Dugges beer I asked for had unfortunately just gone. I had a Crate Rye and Loz had a Burning Sky beer, both were ok. The layout follows the current trend of stripped back industrial look and there were plenty of tables and chairs about. I have head that the pizzas are very good and I must say the people on the table next to us had some just as we were leaving and they did look good. The bottle choice looked pretty good here, and on reflection I think that I should have plumped for a decent bottled beer instead. The staff were fine but didnít exactly ooze friendliness, itís ok but as itís a little out on a limb I cannot imagine that I would rush here again.

Visited during RBESG14. Busy during time of visit in the summer, ambience wise was quite shouty and loud, can imagine quieter in the winter months. Selection beer wise is some of their own brews, and some guest taps. Pizza was good. Not a great fan of the area in general so not sure I would visit again, but worth checking out if visiting other places nearby.

Ample brewery and tap-room in an old warehouse by the canal; a nice range of their own beers, fortunately not only I.P.A.ís, is offered; friendly and quick service; home-made pizza for the starvingÖ Worth a visit.

Modern pub next to the canal. Tables and chairs seems to be made mostly from old crates. An ok selection of their own beer. Ordered some pizzas to share, take a while for them to get them ready, but there is enough beer to keep you occupied in the meantime.

Visited a few times the past couple of years. They stock the whole range of Crate Brewery beers but also focus on exciting offerings of guest beers from around-the-world.
I have seen De Molen and Founders among the reasonably well-stocked fridge. Also strong Belgian offerings. The place keeps its beers well and I appreciate the eclectic mix of music which they host regularly.
I have always been treated well when Iíve been there and staff are a lovely bunch. I would like them to raise their game with their own beers which Iím not a big fan of. However as a place to come by, have a nice beer and relax itís a nice spot.

Set in a very large industrial building with an open plan design, this place makes a nice change to all the pubs in uk. Lots of outdoor seating on the canal. They have some of their own beers and a good selection of guest stuff. The pizza is very good. Interior sticks to the industrial surroundings and is big airy and spacious. A bit out of the way but it is worth the trek. Make sure you try the pizza too!

Hipster friendly with loud lounge/whatever music, no too confusing beers and fancy decor.
I think they had something like six of their own beers on tap when I went there and three or four guest beers, with one being quite good. The beers are not worth traveling for, but the place is nice enough, big and spacious with tables and benches inside and outdoor seating next to a canal, so easy to see why locals would go there to hang out when the weather is good. They make pretty good pizzas as well and the kitchen was quite busy, but waiting really doesnít matter much when you can buy beer. They also had a small pop up cocktail bar outside, which was not open at the time of my visit. Service was good and friendly and getting there is only a short walk from Hackney Wick overground.

Visited during the RBESG í14, day 3, 09/08/14.
Great canal side location, 5 mins walk from Hackney Wick station (Overground), Crate is located inside an old warehouse and occupies the ground floor with a decent sized patio by the canal.
The place was packed during our lunchtime visit but service at the bar was prompt and friendly.
Beer range was 4 or 5 from their own stable, solid if not spectacular, supplemented with a couple or three guests.
Food is largely in the way of tasty home made pizza.
In all a great location and good vibes.
Beer range is a little pedestrian but well worth popping by an an Overground pub crawl.
