Welcome to the home of lager
We are Pillars Brewery, a specialist craft lager brewery based in Walthamstow. Established in 2016, Pillars was the first craft lager brewery in London. We started as a family business and remain a team of family and close friends, driven by a mutual love of lager.
Lots of people drink lager; in fact, 2 of every 3 pints bought in the UK are lager!
Yet, not everyone is proud to admit that they like it. We want to change that. There is a lager for everyone at Pillars!
A good lager is well balanced, full-flavoured and refreshing. It may taste simple but lager is a sophisticated and refined beer style. Getting it right takes practice, knowledge, specialist equipment and quality ingredients. Lager brewing is an art, but there is no snobbery here at Pillars, just great beer.
We are proud to combine contemporary brewing techniques with traditional brewing principles. Our beer is created within a traditional Bavarian-style brewhouse, complete with its own lauter tun. We tailor the water profile for each brew using our onsite water treatment plant and complete the process with a minimum of four weeks of cold conditioning.
Pillars loves lager
We love it because it’s elegant, honest and tastes phenomenal. But most importantly, we love how it brings people together. It’s the drink in your hand at BBQs and weddings, on first dates and quiet nights at your local, at festivals and parties, on holidays or at home on the sofa.
That’s what it’s all about for us: lager, family and community. We want to bring great lager to the people, and bring people together with great lager. Pillars is more than just an East London brewery- we’re a community. Come join us!
