We are two locals of Waltham Forest with a love of craft beer. We started Draught Drop because we wanted people to experience the amazing local breweries our borough has to offer with it's residents, in a way that's sustainable for our planet and importantly on draught! A lot has changed since then and now more than ever, we want to support our local breweries by delivering direct to customers through these difficult times.
How does it work?
Each week we bring you a different beer from one of our partner breweries. This is filled straight from a keg and purged of oxygen to maximize freshness. Our growlers are completely reusable and thoroughly cleaned and santized between use.
How much beer will I get?
You will get 3.3 pints (1.89L) of beer each week
