All Our Bars Launch Craft Beer Range In Clapham

Pub Group All Our Bars have launched their first craft beer range at the Phoenix in Clapham.

The range includes offers from niche brewers all over the world but with a large presence from the UK. The range of 30 beers and ciders include products from Meantime, BrewDog, Harviestoun and Thornbridge. Particular specialities include Affligem Blond, Orval, Thornbridge Jaipur, Bear Republic Racer from California, and a range of fruit beers from Belgium that include Floris Framboise and Mongozo Coconut Beer. Many of the beers are paired with menu dishes and the group hopes that this will take off as an interesting alternative to wine.

The craft beers are supported by a cask and keg range that includes offerings from the new Portobello brewery and Meantime.

Paul Wigham, CEO of All Our Bars, said “Our team has been making a concerted effort to offer something different in our product set in every category. In many sites, we are running unusual premium products such as new London gins or Scottish vodkas, but this is our first foray into the craft beer sector. The customer interest has been very exciting and we look forward to introducing more products to other sites in the very near future”.

Wigham had this to say about the suppliers. “The guys who supply or brew these products are fascinating. They are extremely helpful but more importantly, they are genuinely passionate about their product category without being parochial and they all admire each others products. Mike Hill at Utobeer and Sam Houston from Hungry Communications were great in helping us to put the ranges together and Meantime Brewing Company demonstrated what brewer service ought to be like – they were superb”

The Phoenix is located at 348 Clapham Road, London SW9 9AR. Telephone 0207 622 2645.
