Join Secret London Runs for an easy-going 8km running tour through London's East End, stopping at a few of our favourite breweries and pubs to sample the best craft beer on offer. Along the way, your beer-loving tour guide will tell you more about the brewing history of the East End and the dynamics behind the recent craft beer revolution.
The run begins at the Old Truman Brewery - previously the largest brewery in the world - on bustling Brick Lane and takes you to a number of nods to the area's brewing past.
At three breweries along the route, you'll stop for a quick sample armed with a score card, sampling tips and insight onto the rise of craft beer in the East End. The tour ends in a brewery in Hackney Wick, with a pint and a snack, after a beautiful jog along the canal.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
FANTASTIC RUNNING TOUR
I was amazed at the amount of beers we got to try! It was great discovering new microbreweries I would never have stumbled across otherwise. Best of all, Josh, who ran the tour, clearly loved craft beer and knew all about the history of beer in London. It’s so wonderful to be able to share in someone’s passion, makes it all far more enjoyable.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC AFTERNOON
Great group of people (all of which i didn't know beforehand). Excellent guide - Ian who knew his brewery stuff plus also local knowledge of the area. Weather fantastic, good choice of brewery stops, excellent selection of beers. Will definitely do again and will talk some friends into joining me. Thanks for a great afternoon all. See you again soon."

CRAFT BEERS OF THE EAST END
"Had a great time. Jog was the right length but not too fast. Guide was very friendly, funny and informative. Got to taste more beer than I expected"
