Something’s brewing in N17
Beavertown, one of London’s biggest craft beer success stories, is opening a new pub in Tottenham. The brewery, founded by Logan Plant — son of Led Zeppelin guitarist Robert — and now owned 51-49 percent with beer magnate Heineken, is taking over Tottenham Hotspur’s ticket office to open The Corner Pin, named for a pub that occupied the building a few decades ago.
The pub will be spread over three floors with 12 of the brewery’s beers on tap, according to the Evening Standard, joining its Tottenham taproom and gigantic Enfield brewery, which was funded by the £40 million sale of that 49 percent stake to Heineken.
