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.

One more day. Anton’s preparing his stomach for the 15+ craft beers that will have to be sampled tomorrow 😋🍺🥨
Guest beer line up for this weekend:

🔹Lost & Grounded Festbier 5.3%
 Golden straw in colour, our 2022 Festbier embodies the last of the summer sunshine. The soft, malty backbone of this beer is delicately flavoured with citrus notes from Magnum hops, and is reminiscent of marmalade on lightly toasted bread.

🔹Gipsy Hill Festbier 5.8% 
A full-bodied, malt-forward lager, lightly hopped to let the layered German malts shine. Light biscuit and toast flavours, with licks of caramel, spice and everything nice.

🔹Mondo Festbier 5.8%
Spider Murphy is a 5.8% Märzen. This classic German Bier is perfectly quaffable for your Oktoberfest celebrations. With a malt-forward, toasty flavour profile, a clean and crisp Märzen.

🔹Anspach & Hobday Sticke Alt 5.5%
Sticke Alt, a maltier and hoppier version of traditional Altbier, is a mysterious concoction of hops and malts that is never brewed the same way twice.

🔹Purity Brewing Helles 5.0%
Following the Reinheitsgebot Purity laws of 1516, Made entirely from organic ingredients, Pure Helles uses the finest English Maris Otter malt, Pilgrim hops from Worcestershire and a blend of classic noble hops. Gluten Free.

A pale lager, brewed to a sessionable 4.2% ABV, and featuring beechwood  smoked malt from Weyermann in Bamberg.

🔹Moor Festbier 5.8%
Moor is bringing you a true to style 5.8% Fest Bier, horizontally lagered and naturally carbonated with live yeast as usual.  It’s a technique and level of attention to detail seldom seen on our shores.

🔹Orbit Festbier WLS075 5.8% 
Pale golden Festival Lager, with a fluffy white head and crystal-clear brightness. Aromas of cereal malts, lemon sherbet, and peppery spice, with bready-dough flavours and soft, balanced hop bitterness. 

🔹Anspach & Hobday Smoked lager 5.5% 
A homage to the great smoked beers of Bamberg. Dark, rich, and immensely smokey, The Rauchbier is as wholesome as they come. Crisp, fresh and incredibly drinkable.
