This Wednesday 28th October saw us officially open the doors at our much anticipated second store at 78 St. John’s Hill, Battersea. Located just a stone’s throw away from Clapham Junction station, our new store has taken all the best bits of our Balham store and upped the ante by throwing in a few more treats (more info below).

Design wise we’ve kept our trademark tiles both on the floor and walls, but we’ve changed up the colours a bit, opting for beautiful pastel pink & blue, off-set with some royal blue. We’ve also added a few new touches to pique your visual tastebuds.

In the fridges and on the shelves we’ve managed to pack in a whopping 420 different beers in bottle and can, from breweries across the world, including of course many from London and the UK, but also America, New Zealand, Australia, Denmark, Germany, Belgium and even Estonia!

In addition, as in Balham, we will also have a rotating selection of beers on draught across our 4 taps, available to drink instore and to take away in our beautiful glass growlers. We’ve got some pretty exciting beers ready to go on tap this week and you can get a sneek peak here.

We’ve also got some pretty cool new additions at our Clapham Junction site, our top 3 being:

1. Private Tasting Room

One of the big reasons we were drawn to this site was that there was a second floor where we could put something that we had spent quite a while dreaming of – a dedicated tasting room! The space has been designed to be as flexible as possible, and we’ve already started making some awesome plans for it. On November 4th we’re teaming up with Pretty F****** Good Toast for our latest beer and food matching event. Then, later in the month, we’ll be hosting Beer “Speed Dating” – an event where we’ll be matching you with beers, not people. We’ll also be able to offer private tastings if you fancy celebrating an occasion in style or just want to learn more about beer. Suffice to say, we’re pretty excited about the possibilities so watch this space, because this is only the start.

2. Homebrew Club

We are incredibly excited to be able to launch our long desired home-brew club, now that we have a dedicated seperate space in which to host meetings and homebrewing demos. Led by a couple of award winning homebrewers, the WBB Homebrew Club will meet monthly and cover off a variety of topics from getting started, to what equipment will be needed to developing recipes to getting experimental and many many more.

The first meeting will be on Tuesday 17th November. If you’re interested in finding out more, please email homebrew@webroughtbeer.co.uk for further info.

3. Beer Garden

When we first opened in Balham just over a year ago, we thought of ourselves purely as a take away bottle shop. But we soon realised that there was a desire from our customers to have a drink onsite, surrounded by an unparelled selection of bottled beers to choose from. The advent of summer meant benches outside and before we knew it we had become a lovely hybrid of shop & bar, with customers dropping by on the way back from work or before heading out for dinner nearby. We knew we wanted to be able to emulate this at our new Clapham Junction store and we’re delighted to say that we have gone one step further than Balham by having our very own secluded beer garden tucked away at the back of the store. As well as offering the perfect space for enjoying some great beers, we’re also planning to put on some great events in the space such as summer BBQs, a mammoth Oktoberfest and outdoor cinema amongst others.

All in all, it’s fair to say we’re incredibly excited to have our second site up and running and we can’t wait to welcome new customers and good old regulars alike in to the fold as we continue our mission to bring you the best and most interesting beer experience on the planet.
