Two Tribes are being hailed as the next generation of craft brewers out of North London.
Brewing out of their creative hub/music venue/taproom in Tileyard Studios, Kings Cross. Two Tribes are building a community of like-minded beer, music and art lovers through some seriously tasty brews.
Founded by old pals Justin and Nicky, the story begins back in 2015, where, on a trip across Australia the pair fell in love with the nuances of craft beer. Upon their return, they immediately immersed themselves in the world of craft beer and began brewing at the old King’s Brewery in Horsham. At the time the brewery was responsible for a rather traditional range of beers, and it wasn’t long afterwards the pair decided to up-sticks and go it alone.
They landed themselves a premises at Tileyard Studios just north of Kings Cross, amongst a collection of around 250 creative businesses including a music school and 85 Music Studios. The duo have a history in the music industry and this influence can be seen in everything Two Tribes do. From the names of the beers they brew and their ethos around collaboration, all the way through the brewhouse itself, that houses a stage and music venue, often frequented by the students from the college next door.
From here, the brewery has grown quite remarkably over the past 5 years. In order to keep up with demand, they have taken on additional space in a warehouse just down the road and began brewing operations with a host of third-party breweries. The now tight-knit team of four have got big plans for the future too, with more expansion on the horizon. We for one, can’t wait to see what they do next.
In the spirit of collaboration, for tonight’s beer Two Tribes have teamed up with yours truly, to create a beer exclusive to BeerBods subscribers. Symphony is a cocoa and sea salt stout that pairs notes of rich dark chocolate, plum and coffee with a slight salinity that pulls you back in for more. Ful, bodied with a silky smooth mouthfeel, this is one to sup by the fire.
