About Us

About Us

indiebeer is run by co-owners Clare and Owen.  We have lived in the local area for over 10 years and are really excited to be able to open indiebeer in the vibrant Holloway area.  

We travelled around the UK, Europe and North America to seek inspiration for indiebeer.  We 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.  Our aim in creating indiebeer was to bring the best bits of all the amazing places we saw together under one roof!

We absolutely love to chat beer so come along and enjoy yourself in our laid-back environment.

Current Favourite Beers

• Tiny Rebel Frambuzzi

Most Memorable Beer Moment

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