Byron Craft Beer

What would help wash down a particularly delicious burger? Why, beer of course! At least, that's what the brains behind Byron thought ahead of this very week, the one which sees the chain's launch of its new craft beer list.  Some of the few that are available at your nearest Byron are… Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Kellerweis, the Hawaiian Longboard and Racer 5 IPA from California. All the regulars will still feature, so if you're a fan of the Camden Hills lager, Brooklyn Lager and the Byron Pale Ale, all is certainly not lost. Bottoms up! www.byronhamburgers.com/

O-food

Head over to Shoreditch’s Rivington Street to check out O-food, the new pop up fast food bar set up by Jens Hannibal, Daniel Flösser and Roel Philippart and serving up delicious Nordic dishes using fresh and sustainable ingredients. Aim of the game is to show people low-impact alternatives to meat-based fast food. The fish it uses are non- ‘Big Five’ (haddock, prawns, tuna, cod and salmon).
