1991 Beer index
The 1991 edition of the East London Beer Guide - East London & City CAMRA.
Stations - London Fields and Hackney Downs (BR Liverpool Street), Hackney Central and Dalston Kingsland Road (BR North London).
This guide covers the central part of Hackney, from Kingsland Road to Mare Street and including those parts around the Town Hall and church. Other parts of the borough fall into Clapton and Homerton and the western end is covered by CAMRA's North London Guide. Much of the borough is covered by waves of terraced housing, punctuated (especially in the south towards the Regents Canal) by some more modern estates and the inevitable blocks of flats.
The E8 district has retained many of its original pubs and a good number still display an interesting range of late Victorian styles. There are some concentrations around the local markets, such as Ridley Road or Broadway Markets. Many have an Irish clientele and music is a popular feature, although sadly real ale is not as widely available as we would like and the beer range is dominated by the Big Four.
