Beef & Brew Steaks out Haggerston

On 23rd July Beef & Brew, the Kentish Town favourite, is bringing their grass-fed beef and craft beers to the former Duke’s Brew & Que site in the heart of East London, just a stone’s throw from Regent’s Canal in Haggerston.

Taking cues from the building’s long history as the old Duke of York public house, guests can begin with a Half pint of fried oysters with a yuzu dressing; or Brisket on toast with pickles and gravy. The star of the show is, of course, the beef, coming in a range of cuts from a host of renowned suppliers. Sirloin is sourced from retired dairy cows, from Txuleta in Galicia; fillet cuts from Swaledale Foods’ native-breed cattle in North Yorkshire; and onglet from grass-fed Herefords. Each steak is dipped in beef dripping before being quickly chargrilled. A host of vegetable sides are dishes in their own right, including Carrots, dill and buttermilk dressing; Smoked aubergine with honey and miso; and Sweet potato, coconut yogurt and spices. Throughout the week between 6-7pm, hanger steak and chips is on the menu, whilst locals can pitch up for roasts with all the trimmings every Sunday afternoon.

Of course, the beef is just half of the story, and Dan and the team have assembled a line-up of craft beers from breweries all over the country, focusing on quality and value.  Draught lagers will include Sorachi from Scottish brewery Harviestoun, with other beers on tap including Siren’s Calypso, a spritzy Berliner-style sour beer and a Hook Island red ale from fellow East Londoners Five Points. Beer fans can get their hands on specialist beer flights, as well as a pairing menu of craft pours to accompany each dish, while wines will also be poured on tap, with a concise bottle list focusing on small producers.

Co-founder Dan, says, “I’ve always loved food and have been a keen cook since university. I grew frustrated working in the City and I wanted to do something I was passionate about, so Beef & Brew was born. It’s exciting to bring quality steaks that don’t break the bank to an even wider audience in East London – we’re moving into a beautiful old pub, where we can welcome locals for everything from a beer and a bar snack to a lazy Sunday roast, and continue to champion amazing small producers.”
