1. Camden Town Brewery

While the other pubs on this list have long histories, Camden Town Brewery on Wilkins Street Mews opened in 2010 as an independent craft brewery with an on-site pub.

Camden Town Brewery has been a leader in the the craft beer revival in the U.K that has emerged in recent years, following trends in the U.S. It is building a second brewery elsewhere in London, and in December 2015, was acquired by AB InBev, which is the world’s largest brewing conglomerate.

Wilkins Street Mews is also unlike the other mews we’ve covered in that it runs along side an elevated train structure. Camden Street Brewery occupies space in the rail viaduct arches and its large brewing kettles face directly onto the mews.  Whatever the future holds for Camden Town Brewery, at present, Wilkins Street Mews is a great place to drink fresh brewed beer.
