Join us at our London Bridge Bar and Taproom, in the heart of the Bermondsey beer mile for sunny outdoor drinks, cosy beer tastings and the best of London’s streetfood markets.
Here at Hiver we love all things beer and bees and the Hiver Taproom is at the heart of everything we do. It’s our office and meeting room in the week and our chance to pull up the shutter and welcome consumers into the world of honey beer on a weekend! We also take private party bookings too.
Our London Bridge bar and Brewery Taproom and Shop (know as the hivequarters) is inside a large two-story railway arch underneath the historic Victorian tracks into London bridge. It is a great stop on the best of London Days out that include sightseeing, food markets, distilleries and more. Our Taproom is also family-friendly and dog-friendly and you are welcome to enjoy the market streetfood in our Space while enjoying a beer.
The history of the Hiver Taproom
Hannah started the business out of a passion for sustainable produce and several years in the brewing world under her belt. The reason our Taproom is based near London Bridge and why we’re so proud to be part of Bermondsey’s Spa Terminus food and drink community, is because Hannah started the business here. By occupying a spare desk at neighbour Jensen’s Gin distillery and by selling some bottles on a Sunday as part of the Maltby St streetfood market. Over the next few years the business ran a Christmas pop-up in a neighbouring arch and by the following summer had taken over a big and empty space!!
The Taproom has grown up organically ever since and we’re now really proud of our bar and fantastic customer service that the team offer every weekend, rain or shine. You can read more about how we help bees and our approach to sustainability HERE.
