The Walthamstow Beer Project

This is the 6th annual green-hopped beer brewed by East London Brewing Company in collaboration with the Walthamstow Beer Project, a community hop-growing project taking place in gardens across the London Borough of Waltham Forest.

Local hop-growers bring their prima donna hops to the brewery on a designated September Sunday each year, where the community comes together to pluck the cones from the bines, eat, drink, dance and generally make merry.

2019 was a record year for the project, with 70 kilos of green hops harvested.

Hop plants provided to the hop growers are from a Kent Hop Farm.

The beer will be Launched at the Kent Green Hop Beer Festival as a celebration of our linked hop picking heritage
