Fresh beer and fresh food – it’s the perfect combo, right? Camden Town Brewery have been cooking up a storm in preparation for our new Beer Hall opening next month, and they’re excited to (finally) tell you what we’ve been working on.
Camden Town Brewery have teamed up with iconic British chef, Theo Randall, to create a delicious menu that we know you won’t be able to find anywhere else. Think classic Italian dishes fused with traditional beer hall cuisine, all paired perfectly with our fresh, never pasteurised beers for the ultimate food and drink experience.
With their beer menu boasting 24 taps for you to choose from, we’ll be serving up our much-loved Camden core beers, as well as a selection of limited-edition specials. Whether you’re after a chilled pint of our fresh Hells Lager, a refreshing Pale Ale, or an Ink Stout, we’ve got you covered.
Also be offering two unfiltered beers straight from the brewery’s 10HL tanks, our innovative Arch 55 range and a selection of small batch beers developed exclusively for Beer Hall. Collaboration beers created with our London restaurant partners, Hoppers and Homeslice, will also be on tap so don’t forget to give those a try, too.
Debuting their new flight boards specially created for our shiny new Beer Hall, don’t worry about picking your beer for the evening, you can pick five to try out first. Just scan the QR code on the flight and you’ll be able to find out all the juicy details of what makes Camden Town Brewery’s beer range so special.
The star of the show (other than Camden Town Brewery beers, of course) will be the Slice Bar, a pizza bar with a Camden twist. Using rosemary and sea salt infused focaccia for the bases, our pizzas will be topped with only the freshest ingredients – you can expect grilled aubergine, datterini tomato, porchetta, roasted fennel and so much more to tantalise the tastebuds.
And that’s not all, they’ll be adding extra zing to our pizzas by flavouring the bases with seasonal ingredients picked out by Theo himself, creating truly unique flavours which balance the indulgent toppings. First on the menu is spicy nduja sausage and tomato, topped with a creamy scarmorza cheese – is your mouth watering yet?
They’ll also be filling your bellies with more than just pints and pizza at the Beer Hall, as we’ve packed the menu with a selection of small plates, larger dishes and sharing platters. So, tell your mates to bring their appetite because we know you won’t be able to resist ordering the whole menu…
After a light nibble? Camden Town Brewery’s small plates include everything from freshly baked pretzels (what’s a Bavarian beer hall without them?) to rich burrata cheese with roasted asparagus, burnt butter, toasted breadcrumbs, sage and parmesan.
And it wouldn’t be a partnership with Theo Randall if they didn’t make sure they had some fresh pasta on the menu. Camden Town Brewery larger plate specials will rotate on a daily basis and consist of classic pasta dishes such as pappardelle with slow-cooked beef shoulder, chianti tomato sauce and rosemary.
Come down with a crowd (or just one big, empty stomach) and try our Beer Hall sharing platter, perfect for the table, loaded with roasted vegetables, mixed olives, fennel salami, prosciutto di Parma, bresaola and pecorino with a choice of pretzels or focaccia on the side. If you’re after a meat feast, you’ll also find grilled Hereford beef sirloin served with fresh borlotti beans, beets with salsa verde, or for a taste of Italy, order the vegetable fritto misto to share.
And if after all that, you’re still hungry for more (we don’t blame you), we’ve got you spoilt for choice with our desserts ranging from a traditional granita to a selection of ice creams and tarts flavoured with Amalfi lemon or almond.
Theo Randall, British chef and creator of the menu said: “I have always been a big fan of Camden, especially Pale Ale, so when the opportunity came up to collaborate with the team on the menu for the Beer Hall, I couldn’t wait to get started. Looking for inspiration, we visited Bavaria and instantly fell in love with the fusion of flavours that came from the traditional dishes and fresh beer – we wanted to recreate this but in a Camden way.
We also wanted to build in my love for Italian cooking, adding more colour and freshness to the menu with dishes that complimented the fresh, never pasteurised beer. We’ve used the best suppliers and sourced the highest quality ingredients to create dishes that are full of flavour without being too heavy.
The menu is perfect for bringing people back together, so we made sure to have lots of sharing options on the menu, as well as small plates to match with the small batch innovation beers on the bar. We didn’t want to make it too complex, just high quality, beautifully prepared dishes that champion Camden’s beautifully served beers.”
