Hey ladies, I'm Katie Oxley-Cowen, your guide through the best spots in global cities. Today, I've connected with Jess, a Londoner and a frequent visitor to Crate Brewery, a unique hotspot in the heart of East London. She will lend her insider knowledge to show us why Crate Brewery is a must-visit location for young urban women.

Q: Hey Jess, Can you give us an intro about Crate Brewery?

A: Absolutely, Katie. Crate Brewery is a cool, trendy spot in Hackney Wick. It's a bar, pizzeria, and craft brewery all wrapped into one. Set in a former print factory, it's loved for its amazing variety of craft beers and lip-smacking thin crust pizzas.

Q: Why do you choose Crate Brewery as a frequent hang-out spot?

A: That's a great question, Katie. It's not just for the beers or pizzas. Crate Brewery has a particular energy. The canal side location, graffiti art, the mix of tourists and locals and of course the live jazz on Sundays take the visit to a whole new level. The space is large, the service friendly, and the atmosphere is very chilled!

Q: What's unique about their craft beers?

A: Every beer lover would appreciate the effort they put in. Their craft beers are typically brewed on-site, using unique ingredients for each beer type. And they do have an array of options to try out from light to dark, from stout to cider.

Q: Tell us about their food, especially the pizzas.

A: Honestly, Katie, their pizzas are to die for. The thin and crunchy base, topped with fresh ingredients is simply delicious. They have a variety of vegetarian and vegan options as well, like the Middle Eastern pizza with aubergine, tahini, and pomegranate. My personal favorite is the sweet potato, stilton, and walnut pizza.

Q: Would you recommend this place for a girls' night hangout?

A: Absolutely, it's not just a great hangout spot but also incredibly Instagram-worthy! Whether it's a birthday celebration or a chill catch-up with the girls, Crate Brewery is a place to create memories.

Q: Any suggestions for someone visiting for the first time?

A: Yes, try their tasting flight to sample the different craft beers. And don't skip the pizza, of course! Also, if the weather is good, grab a spot near the canal for the best experience.

There you have it, ladies. A peek into Crate Brewery, a must-visit hang-out spot in London.
