Taproom at Elephant & Castle

We’re on a mission to brew authentic German Beers here in London

We are German KRAFT Brewery, a ‘craft’ beer brewery rooted in German tradition, bringing fresh, authentic German style beers here to London, UK. All brewed and served fresh on site. We opened its first brewpub in the sustainable market Mercato Metropolitano in Elephant & Castle. We've been sharing the same values since our beginning and strongly believe and follow the MM Manifesto.
German Kraft was born out of the desire to revive the ceremony that traditionally surrounds beer drinking in Franconia; to create a locally brewed beer, full of character and drink it fresh from the tank.  Our highly controlled brewing process with state-of-the-art equipment allows us to create consistently high-quality brews; unfiltered, unpasteurised and without additives or preservatives. This results in the beer having a short shelf life but it’s exclusively served fresh from the tank and keg at our taproom for optimal quality. We brew all our beers according to the German purity law from 1516, only using water, malt, hops & yeast pushing the boundaries of creating great, flavourful craft beer without fuss.

Brewing a fresh 6000l batch of ‘Heinrich’ our new ‘Zwickel Lager’ today 🌪🍺🌾 to be served exclusively fresh from the tank in E&C 😋
New Beer alert! 🍺🌾
Heinrich - Zwickel Lager 4.8% A classic Franconian way of serving lager. To ‘zwickel’ means to try a sample from the tank. 
This lager is naturally hazy with a bready malt base, combined with notes of light herbs and a moderate crisp bitterness. 🤤

This beer is served exclusively from the tank at Elephant & Castle. 🐘 🏰
