Editors Notes

Wild Card Brewery is an award-winning, craft microbrewery based in Walthamstow. It began as a kitchen table dream in 2012 by friends William and Andrew, and joined later by Jaega Wise (Brewer of the Year, BBC Food Programme Presenter). The brewery has since evolved to produce a range of lovely beers and run two taprooms in East London. 

Wild Card uses the best of modern technology and innovation to produce hand-crafted premium beers. Using high-quality, seasonal, sustainable ingredients, we are relentless in our pursuit of perfection and creativity. 

In addition to our core range, we release a series of exciting specials every month. We apply the same ethos to our branding, collaborating with local and international artists to produce label art that’s ever-changing, experimental and beautiful.


Renegade Urban Winery is a cutting edge urban winery based in E17. Founded in 2016, they buy top quality hand harvested grapes from vineyards around the UK and Europe, race them back to London and make innovative, premium, modern styles of wine. 

Originally located in Bethnal Green, Renegade moved their wine production to Blackhorse Lane in the summer of 2021. Here they have built a state of the art winery with a bar (and kitchen to come). Their Bethnal Green OG winery is till there and houses a quirky wine bar and kitchen. 






Hackney Brewery celebrated 10 years of brewing in 2021. Founded in a couple of railway arches in Haggerston back in 2011, Hackney Brewery is an independently-owned brewery now based on Blackhorse Lane, E17.

After a successful Crowdfunding campaign in 2021 Hackney opened its High Hill Tap, a modern, US-inspired 300 capacity taproom situated right in the heart of the brewery. Featuring a cosy indoor bar, grand beer hall & spacious outdoor yard, serving 20 taps of the freshest Hackney beers alongside the best selection of independent craft beer on the Blackhorse Beer Mile. Hackney Brewery are known for their modern and hop-forward styles, colourful illustrations, and always inventive experimentation.
