Calling all beer-lovers and taco-munchers, this event’s for you! On an industrial estate in North London (where else?) one of London’s most lauded craft breweries, Pressure Drop, are holding their Spring Knees-Up event. There, on March 25, guests will get to try delicious hop-forward beers from a small sampling of the UK’s best breweries, and an exclusive preview from a much-hyped soon-to-open Mexican eatery.
Who’s pouring at the Spring Knees-Up?
There will only be four breweries pouring at the Spring Knees-Up, but even within that selection it’s a bit of a who’s-who of the craft brewing world. And it’s particularly good news for fans of hoppy pales and New England IPA styles of beer. Pressure Drop, obviously, will be pouring a healthy mix of their offerings at the event. We’d garner a guess that they’ll have more options – but it is their taproom after all!
Lewes’ Beak Brewery will also be pouring at the festival. The brewery have gained an incredibly dedicated following in just a couple of years of operation, with brews ranging from their much-loved juice-bomb Parade IPA, to lagers, pale ales, and even traditional British cask styles. Relative new-kids-on-the-block Sureshot Brewing, from Manchester, and Baron Brewing, from East Hertfordshire, will also be serving their beer at the event.
It’s set to be a party full of thick, juicy, hoppy beers. The perfect match for the tacos on offer from Sonora Taqueria, ahead of their impending opening.
Sonora are legends of the food scene in London. Their stand in East London’s Netil Market weathered the likes of snow, covid closures and restrictions, and almost-daily lines that would trail out of the market and down the street. Their flour tortillas, which they cranked out hundreds of daily, were the stuff of legends. And their tacos were quickly crowned the best in London by, well, pretty much everyone.
They sadly closed their stand in Netil Market (with the pie-slinging vendors Willy’s Pies now occupying the space). However, following a successful crowd-funding they’re now set to open a brick-and-mortar restaurant in Stoke Newington this year.
Until they open their restaurant, in “early ’23”, this is the only chance for taco fiends to try their food. You don’t want to miss out.
Spring Knees-Up tickets are priced at £5 and include your first drink. Further drinks, and food from Sonora, are sold separately on the day. Head to Sonora Taqueria’s socials to find out how to secure your ticket.
