Goose Island takes on Be At One site for first London bar

Craft Beer brand Goose Island is to open its first UK bar in Balham, London.

Taking on a site formerly occupied by Be At One on Ramsden Road, the Goose Island Vintage Ale House will be the first food led pub to be opened by the brand's owner, brewing giant AB InBev.

It has been reported that the site is the first in a group of planned sites for Goose Island Vintage Ale House's by the Stella Artois and Budweiser brewer.

As well as serving a range of Goose Island beers including from Honkers, Goose Island IPA and Belgian Farmhouse Ale, the bar will serve food inspired by the brand's Chicago heritage with dishes including Porter and molasses glazed beef cheeks and roasted cod and seafood fregula.

The brand was founded by John Hall in Chicago in 1988. It was acquired by AB InBev for £31m in 2011.

"We wanted to create a venue for the community, full of flavour, and one that would become firmly rooted in the routines of city life."

The Goose Island Vintage Ale House opens on 16 December 2016.
