What to expect….

Welcome Back! scroll to the bottom for an update

We are incredibly excited to be opening our Taproom doors this weekend for you to drink in and enjoy that first pint of draught beer.  But as much as we are trying to make it feel like it was before Covid -19 hit the world with a bang, we have had to make some changes to ensure that we are doing everything possible to follow the guidelines of the Government.  Therefore, please before you visit, familiarise yourself with what to expect:

  • Bookings only – please reserve your table (remember only up to 6 people) by emailing taproom@brickbrewery.co.uk
  • Outside tables only, inside is not accessible, except for the use of toilets
  • As part of the Government guidelines for track and trace, we are required to keep your contact details from every booking for 21 days
  • You will be greeted at the front gate and advised where to go for your booking, this may be the front yard or you may be advised to go round to the back yard, please remember we only have a certain amount of tables with protection from the rain, fingers crossed it will be dry!
  • Hand sanitiser stations will be available at the entrance to both areas of the outside space, at the serving hatch and mobile bar and on stations around the Taproom.  Please ensure you use it on entry and when it is not possible to wash your hands
  • Order at either the hatch (front yard) or mobile bar (back yard) making sure you respect the socially distanced floor markings.  If there is a queue of more than 2 people, we politely ask you to just sit down and wait for it to ease, we will be as quick as we can
  • Screens have been implemented at both serving areas
  • Contactless payment only (this may need to be done by more than 1 transaction if is over £45)

  • All tables and contact points will be thoroughly cleaned, regularly and at every opportunity
  • All staff have access to face coverings and gloves, however they are not obliged to wear them but will be observing social distancing at all times
  • Please ensure your children remain seated at the table and accompany them if they need to visit the toilet
  • Music will be ambient – enough for you to hear it, but not loud so you would ever have to talk loudly or shout
  • There is no food offering, however we have snacks and crisps available
  • Our team has received thorough training on new policies and procedures to ensure all customers and staff feel safe at all times

Please remember, if you or any of your party feel unwell, please do not visit, we would love to welcome you back when you feel better.

Please respect social distancing at all times, should you not be adhering, then our staff have the right to ask you to do so.  Should you not comply, then we have the right to ask you to leave.

Taproom Re-opening!

Taproom Re-opening July 4th!

So the green light has been given for pubs to re-open on the 4th July and we are happy to announce that we will be re-opening!

We have been working incredibly hard in the background to follow all the guidelines given (plus the new guidelines announced at midnight last night!) and will be opening our outdoor spaces (front and back) for the time being.

We are accepting bookings for the tables in the front yard for Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th July ONLY at the current time and so if you would like to reserve a space, please send an email to taproom@brickbrewery.co.uk with the following details and we can see what we are able to do:

  • Name (full name)
  • Time of Reservation (from which time to which time)
  • How many people (please remember that you are only allowed to meet with one other household or a maximum of 6 people from different households during which time social distancing applies i.e 1m + between you, please can you respect these guidelines – please can you confirm details of how your group is made up in your booking so we can allocate the table and space accordingly)
  • Contact Telephone Number

Please do bear with us, as we work everything out, it may take us longer than expected to come back to you.

The back area will be available for walk-ins, with an outdoor mobile bar, however there will be a limited capacity and so you may need to queue.  We ask that if this occurs, you do so in respect of the people around you, our neighbours and adhering to social distancing. We will make a full assessment after that weekend and then may make changes in the way we do things which is why we are only taking bookings for next weekend only.  All details of any changes and future opening times, will be posted on our social media channels so please follow us if you don’t already, to keep up to date. Links below.

Toilets will be available, but they will be limited and there will be no food available that weekend, however there will be crisps and snacks.

Please see below our opening times:

Saturday 4th July 

12noon – 10pm

Sunday 5th July

12noon – 10pm

If you aren’t ready to return just yet but still want to enjoy our beers, then the Takeaway option will still be available (until we run out of jugs, but don’t worry we have plenty!) so you can take your favourite draft beer home.  We will be ceasing Click and Collect from our online store once we open.

We are super happy to be opening back up, can’t wait to see your lovely faces and enjoy a lovely cold pint together!

Amateur Brewers Competition

Following the overwhelming success of last year’s event, we are hosting our second Peckham Amateur Beer Festival at the Taproom with London Amateur Brewers. Brewers will be able to choose one out of eleven categories, following the acronym PECKHAM LIFE, some broad and encompassing, some limited and restrictive, but hopefully covering most major styles. This is to give visitors a wide range of options, and showcase the innovation and diversity of the homebrew scene. Although principally organised by LAB, this competition will be open to all London homebrewers and, indeed, anyone else who can get themselves and their beer to Peckham at the right time! We hope it will be a good opportunity for homebrewers to socialise, share some beer and have a good time…. with a big slice of competitiveness to make it interesting! All open spots have been taken for the entries but there is a waiting list in case of any drop outs.

Visitors will be able to taste each beer and decide which is their favourite for an overall winner. Brick Brewery brewers will also be around throughout the day to share their stories of home brewing and brewing knowledge!

We’ll be announcing more information about the day nearer the time, keep an eye out on our channels for more on this!

International Women’s Day Weekender

Friday 8th– Sunday 10th March (various dates and times for each event)

Brick Brewery Taproom, Peckham, SE15 4QL

Introducing ROLLVNDO

 

This week sees the launch of another exhibition on our Taproom wall. We’re thrilled for Julia Fraile, a local paper collage artist, to exhibit her latest collection Voyage: Le Temps Des Fleurs. Originally from France, Julia is also a fashion designer by trade and uses the collages as another outlet of creativity, inspired by the contemporary culture we live in. We’re excited to have another medium make the most of our exhibition space for another talented local creative.

Julia’s collection will be on show from 7thFebruary until 24thMarch, take time to admire the exhibition when you’re next down in the Taproom. We sat down with Julia to find out a bit more about her and her work.

 

Tell us a bit about yourself…

 I’m Julia, 27 years old, I’ve lived in London for three years now and love the diversity and energy of city… as cliche as it sounds! I’ve always loved all forms of visual art, love surfing when I get the chance (obviously hard in London!), music and of course enjoy travelling and discovering new cultures. I started to work in collaging a few years ago as an escape to reality and an outlet for expressing my creativity.

 

What is your background and where did you grow up? 

I grew up in France. In Britanny in a small seaside town call Lorient. I moved to Nantes when I was 18 to Study Fashion Design in the Atelier Chardon Savard and then moved in Paris for my final year. Following this I moved to Biarritz to start a design job for a well-known surf company. A year after I moved onto Galicia in Spain to design for a Fast Fashion company and it’s at this time when that I really start to work on collage to challenge myself.

 

What does a typical day look like for you…

Wake up, drink a black coffee, cycle to East where I work as a designer for Billionaires Boys Club which is great as it gives me a chance to merge multiple interests, my design background and my collage work. Then it’s cycle back home and go to the gym or do collages to release any extra energy I have!!

 

How do you like to work?

I love to work from my flat where I have all my books, magazines and also good records to listen too! It’s not a big space but it’s for me the place I feel brings my best ideas and vibe to create.

 

What/who inspires you and your work?

 People, song lyrics, quotes in a book, objects, a bit of everything really. A mix of popular and contemporary culture.

 

Where or what is your favourite spot in South East London?

 

There’s an amazing old Irish pub next to my flat in Elephant that’s pretty untouched, the vibe of the locals are amazing. Theo’s is always a staple for the best pizza and during summer a cycle along the river to Wapping and then Greenwich is the perfect way to spend the day.
