Brewpub in Shoreditch
Goose Island Brewpub in Shoreditch is a great new addition to the East London bar scene, particularly if you are a beer lover. The Chicago based brewery was founded in 1988 have been brewing beer around the world ever since. As expected, there are a variety of Goose Island draught and bottled beers on offer along with a selection of other breweries featured on a very impressive beer list. If you head to the back of the pub, you will see the talent behind all of this – the brewery where the magic happens!
This brewpub in Shoreditch is the perfect place for beer lovers and beer amateurs! The best way to sample different beers is through one of their flights and trying three 1/3 pints. We tried the Spaten-Franziskaner Munich Beer, Goose Island Shoreditch Brut IPA and Goose Island Beer 312 Urban Wheat Ale.
Priced from £6-10 (depending on the choice of beers) this is the best way to see what you like! Oh, and of course, I also loved the goose heads on the beer pumps and the takeaway cans available.
It is obviously sensible to soak up the alcohol with some delicious food. Goose Island serves 16 inch Chicago style pizzas which are absolutely massive and cut up into small squares to make it even easier to share. We opted for the Pepperoni, Meatball and Italian Sausage (£15) which was a delicious thin crust pizza with plenty of toppings. Even though we couldn’t finish it, we took the pizza away and enjoyed it the next day!
We also tried the Cemitas sub with Cochinita Pibil, smashed avocado, chopped tomato, coriander, chipotle sour cream. The sub was full of flavour and a good level of spice. This and the pizza was more than enough but next time we would love to try the Buffalo Wings and the Mac and Cheese with Pulled Pork.
Goose Island is a fantastic brewpub in Shoreditch offering a fantastic range of beer, tasty and hearty food and a fun atmosphere. The staff were lovely and knowledgeable and happy to offer suggestions for beer and food pairing! They also have live bands and live DJ set every Saturday so get ready to party!
