Was told by a guy in small Netil Market by the railway arches that the Plato brewery disappeared a couple of years back, although to where he didn't know.

CLOSED. Staff at a nearby stall say they still brew elsewhere, but I've never seen their beers.

Visited on 9th July 2016. This is definitely an odd place, tucked away at the far side of the Netil market from the main entrance. A tiny little brewery with 2 taps out front. Had 2 new to Rb beers on keg on our visit. Get beer in plastic containers which isn’t great but inevitable due to the location. Took the beer upstairs to the roof terrace with seating, this is a pretty nice space but was packed with locals. I’d go back, just for the novelty value. The beer quality of one of the beers wasn’t too great but would give them a second chance.

Visited thanks to Colin and Fergus, would never of found or noticed this place otherwise, we visted while on the way to the nearby London fields. This place is a container which was offering 4 taps at the time, presented by the brewer in plastic glasses onsite. Worth popping by if in the area.

Discovered this place by accident on November 21st, before it was on ratebeer (despite the fact that Adam has been officially brewing here since the late spring of 2014. ;-), while trying to locate London Fields. Let’s be honest. It’s a home brewer with a license to sell. In a temporary container set-up with other tiny businesses in containers, forming a sort of handicraft market. Adam is a passionate brewer and we spent an hour talking beer and tasting his stuff, before heading off to our actual destination. Definitely worth visiting when in the Bethnal Green area!

Visited on Sauturday 29/11/14 around 3pm. Located in a shipping container, well there are two on top of each other and you can easily see Plato from outside the marketplace as it is clearly emblazoned on the top containter, Plato is a true nanno brewery come home brewing shop. They had 4 beers on tap during our visit and one bottle to take away. The stout was solid, the other beers decent if not overly exciting. Adam, the brewer from Canada, was a friendly guy and promised to brew a CDA in the new year! Beer was available for £2 a half or £4 a pint so a little high end on cost for quality but comparitive to many other places. There’s nowhere to sit here, you get your beer in a plastic glass and can stand outside the entry or wander round the market with it. A nice little stop if in the area but not a destination in its own right. You can however combine this venue with others in the area, it’s literally a 3 minute walk from London Fields taproom.

Well, as this place stands it is the smallest brewery I have ever visited. And it’s also a homebrew supply shop. The whole outfit is crammed into a cube-shaped shipping container that’s roughly three metres by three metres by three metres. Inside the they’ve got two fridges holding four kegs and a selection of yeasts, some shelves and drawers with other brewing essentials, grains, etc. For now they offer c. four beers on draft to drink there (half or full pint measures) or the proprietor - Adam - will fill a bottle and cap it for takeaway. Adam says he’s hoping to start offering proper bottles and growlers in the near future, and perhaps doing some gypsy brewing. For now, he’s brewing extremely small batches in this little container and selling it on site. Definitely a brewery to keep an eye on.
