About the beer 

Pillars' Hoppy Helles brew is part of their Small Batch range - a showcase of diverse and fascinating lager styles. Brewed in collaboration with the William Morris Gallery this beer combines both imagery and flavour born in Walthamstow. The artwork is a commission of one Morris' works - Snakeshead and 50% of all profits will go to the gallery, supporting their work and mission to raise inspire, educate and inform people about Morris' life and works.

Their Hoppy Helles is a classic Helles brew, dry-hopped with Mandarina Bavaria hops to give a full bodied lager with malty character, balanced by zesty, citrus flavours. This brew is what Pillars is all about - giving people the chance to support a historic, local cultural institution just by drinking great beer.

The Man 

Born in Walthamstow in 1834, William Morris is now world famous for his iconic textile designs which embodied the Victorian aesthetic - however in his life, Morris made major contributions to literature and poetry, as well as being active in economic and environmental politics. A man ahead of his time and who's legacy is still felt today.


The Gallery



Set in Walthamstow's Lloyd Park, the William Morris Gallery is housed in the same stunning Georgian grade II listed building which Morris and his family called home for nearly a decade in the mid 1800's. The gallery was first opened in 1950, and Morris' stature saw the then PM open the gallery, with Queen Mary being one of the very first visitors. 

The gallery continues to be the only public gallery in the world dedicated to Morris', and engages with all parts of the local community to share his message and works.

About the Brewery

We are Pillars Brewery, a specialist craft lager brewery based in Walthamstow.

Established in 2016, Pillars was the first craft lager brewery in London. We started as a family business and remain a team of family and close friends, driven by a mutual love of lager.

Pillars is proud to combine contemporary brewing techniques with traditional brewing principles. Our lager is created within a traditional Bavarian-style brewhouse, complete with its own lauter tun. We tailor the water profile for each brew using our
 onsite water treatment plant, and complete the process with a minimum of four-weeks cold conditioning.

A good lager is well balanced, full-flavoured and refreshing. It may taste simple but lager is a sophisticated and refined beer style. To get it right takes knowledge, specialist equipment and quality ingredients. Lager brewing is an art, but there is no snobbery here at Pillars, just great beer.

This is what it’s all about for us: lager, family and community. We don’t have customers; we have partners who we support with a wide range of services, events and anything else they might need! We want to work with you to bring great lager to the people, and bring people together with great lager. 

Pillars is more than just a brewery- we’re a community. Come join us.
