Noticing that some of the most popular microbrews in East London weren't available for purchase from a single location, Clapton Craft was set up as a craft beer store in Hackney that makes it easy to find a locally-made beer. Despite there being a lot of pubs in the area, this craft beer store serves as a place where you can really get to know more about beer.

One of the neatest things about Clapton Craft is that you can pick up a growler and come back to have it refilled later on, especially since some of the beers are only available on keg. Due to the nature of this shop, Clapton Craft has a strong relationship with local breweries and plans to host "hop takeovers," where one local brewery provides beer for all the taps.
