Some may argue that craft beer and football don’t go hand in hand, but I beg to disagree. As a craft beer fan who also loves the beautiful game, I’d rather be watching a Super Sunday sipping on a finely-brewed IPA or superb stout than be subjected to the mediocre taplist that some bars that specialise in football have.
So with this in mind, I’ve put together a handy dandy guide to bars – initially in London, where I’m based – that both show football and have a good selection of beer. And eventually, I’ll be looking to expand this out to the whole of the UK, so no beer-loving football fan ever has to endure a Carling whilst watching the big game again.
If you have any suggestions for the list, do let me know on firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m looking for bars that have a good selection of what the average craft beer fan would describe as “good beer”, and that show weekly football on Sky/BT (not just the odd World Cup game every 4 years). Bonus points if they do good food.
