The best of the craft beer world meets Italian-American fare at Mason & Company, a new craft beer bar and kitchen opening on the 17th of June at Canalside in Hackney Wick, part of the Here East creative hub in the Olympic Park.
Behind the new opening is Ed Mason, founder of Hackney’s Five Points Brewing Company, and Rachel Jones, founder of street food stall, Capish?. Mason & Company will be a continuation of the East London craft beer legacy started by Mason & Taylor in 2010 and will mark the first bricks and mortar home for Capish? who have long been a KERB, Street Feast and pop-up favourite.
Mason & Company aims to be London’s first port of call for craft beer with a constantly changing selection over 20 draught taps and a wide array of bottled and canned brews. A destination for new beer launches, food and beer pairings, exclusives, and ‘Meet The Brewer’ events, the Mason & Company bar will showcase only independently owned breweries including newest offerings from the best and brightest UK brewers. In addition to beer, there will be coffee from London roasters Alchemy, along with a stock of natural wines and artisan spirits from small producers.
From the Capish? kitchen, expect to find their signature Meatball Hero, pork & beef balls, marinara, rocket, provolone cheese on a polenta-crusted sub and Rachel’s famous Steak Braciole, 45 days dry aged steak is slow-cooked for 6 hours in bone marrow and white wine and stuffed with garlic, parsley, chilli and Pecorino Romano, and served in a buttermilk roll with melting Taleggio cheese. Brand new bar snacks created for Mason & Company include Buffalo Cheese Sticks, Sicilian chickpea fritters with rosemary salt, and Italian Poutine, Italo fries topped with 6-hour short rib ragu and cheese curds. Daily specials will include Veal Chop Pizzaiola with vinegar peppers, family style Lasagna, Fried Chicken Cacciatore and Clams Casino. Those with a sweet tooth will be well catered for with Tiramisu Doughnuts, house made Gelato and Cannoli.
