Pretty Decent Beer Co to Launch New Taproom at 17&Central, Walthamstow

Pretty Decent Beer Co, an independent London brewery, is set to unveil its latest venture: a taproom within 17&Central, Walthamstow, opening its doors at 6 pm on Thursday, 11th April.

Named Pretty Decent & Friends, which will be situated on the first floor of Crate at 17&Central. This vibrant space will feature ten taps offering a rotating selection of fresh craft beers, all brewed locally at Pretty Decent's Blackhorse Road brewery. Among the offerings will be weekly special releases alongside core favourites such as "I Could Get Better at T*sco For a Quid," a soft and juicy 4.5% ABV session IPA inspired by an early Google review.

Founders Sarah and James Casey are excited about the launch of the new community-focused taproom, as Sarah explains:

“We’re super excited to be opening our third venue in the heart of Waltham Forest,” said . “The brewery has grown up here, and the local community has played such a central part in getting us to where we are today.

“The name speaks to the fact that we’ll be working closely with some incredible street food vendors to create a community spot where you can come and hang out with your pals.”

The taproom's weekly "First Pour Thursday" event will allow patrons to sample the latest special release, as well as core beers, for £4 a pint. Pretty Decent Beer Co also plans to collaborate closely with 17&Central’s street food vendors to offer affordable food and drink deals, along with beer pairings tailored to menu items.

Reflecting on the significance of investing in the local community, co-founder James Casey added,

"Waltham Forest is our home, and we believe in supporting independent, locally-made produce. Our partnership with 17&Central’s food producers will offer patrons a unique experience, complete with fresh beer, food pairings, and entertainment."

The brewery's commitment to sustainability is evident in its efforts to reduce emissions by cycling beers from its nearby brewery to the taproom on a weekly basis. Moreover, Pretty Decent Beer Co remains dedicated to giving back to the community, with proceeds from every beer sold contributing to various progressive causes.
