The International Beer Day will take place this Friday 5th of August. Let’s celebrate it by tasting wonderful beers at independent pubs! It will be a great way to honour this traditional drink and support amazing independent businesses at the same time. CityStack offers to discover great beers at a selection of ten independent London pubs in zone 1 and 2, including the Award-winning craft beer pub – Crown & Shuttle (find the complete list of beers/pub below). This unique gift for pub lovers provides a discount of £10 off a £20 spend at each pub: you can get 4 beers for £10 only. Ultimately, CityStack users benefit from £100 worth of beers with a single stack of beer mats that costs only £20.
How does it work?
1. Use the guide and map to pick one of the pubs
2. Go to the pub, order any beer you’d like to try (you can order food as well!)
3. When it’s time to pay, give the beer mat to the bartender to receive £10 off your bill
4. Pick another pub and do it again!

Supporting Independent Pubs
Independent pubs are still desperately trying to tread water in order to help themselves through this post-pandemic period: 400 pubs closed in UK in 2021, 200 in the first half of 2022. With the current record inflation rate, consumers remain reluctant to budget for going out. Not to mention the staff shortages issues. While big chains may be well equipped to weather the current economic situation, it’s much harder for independent pubs to keep their business afloat. We know how challenging it is to run a local pub. It requires a lot of energy to deliver the best service possible, and managers don’t have time & money to spend on marketing. Nor the expertise. We want to help prevent the disappearance of these businesses that are part of the UK’s DNA, by sharing our expertise so they can highlight why people should visit them.
Pubs are mainly dedicated to one mission: connecting people. We genuinely consider that gathering and connecting with other people is fundamental to well-being and promotes happiness. However, with the rising costs, it is much harder for Londoners to dedicate money to go to pubs and connect. We offer them an opportunity to go to the pub at a lower cost.
“When CityStack came to us to join the initiative, we were delighted to take part, especially after months of closure. We are more than happy to welcome and meet new people from across the city and do what we do best – hospitality”
Dean Beard, Landlord of the Bow Bells
