MIND THE TANK: Draft House Chancery Opens

25 Apr 2016, BeerEvents

This week marked the official launch of Draft House Chancery. A huge thank you to all who came down to help us test-drive the place last week. Your efforts in eating and drinking us out of house & home did not go unnoticed and – yes – the ‘feedback’ was very helpful.

The pub features no fewer than four 500-Litre tanks for the storage and service of fresh, unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell, which is imported weekly for us from the Czech Republic. This is true Czech lager, hitherto only available in Draft House Seething Lane. I can confirm that it is a truly life-affirming drink, and one which no one with even the slightest interest in beer should live another day without trying.

In a first for Draft House – and indeed for London – we have created a private ‘Tank Room’ which is available for hire, featuring the soon-to-be legendary Altar of Tank (pictured below). This is a tiled plinth at which party-goers can learn to pour the three different styles of Pilsner Urquell: Milk, Smooth and Crisp. Thereafter the party will be essentially a self-service affair, supervised by the Tank Master (someone that works for us and actually knows what they’re doing). Let me know if you’d like to book in or e-mail

I have to confess to feeling very proud of how effing brilliant the pub looks and feels. The fabulous Brett Smith (Chancery General Manager) and her epic team are champing at the bit to welcome you.
