About US


indiebeer is a craft beer shop and tasting room in Holloway, London, run by co-owners Clare and Owen.

They travelled around the UK, Europe and North America to seek inspiration for indiebeer.  They were particularly impressed by the American beer shops, where there is a real emphasis on the overall experience.  These are places to spend time, relax, explore and learn more about this wonderful liquid.  The aim was to make indiebeer the best bits of all the amazing places they saw together under one roof!

They both absolutely love to chat beer so come along and enjoy yourself in a laid-back environment.

Volunteering for the first time at CAMRA North London Drinker festival and having a great time advising the customers and obviously trying everything on tap :) 

Stepping into my first American bottle shop while touring the USA to seek inspiration for indiebeer. The Americans really know how to do it, the bottle shops are on a totally different level - so much bigger! 

Trying my first beer ice-cream float (again on our USA tour) - a revelation
