North London brewery Bohem has officially opened a significantly enlarged brewery in Tottenham to add to its original bar room premises in Bounds Green.

The brewery, which uniquely specialises in Czech-style bohemian lagers decided it required larger premises last year after initially operating out of a small site near its tap-room on Myddleton Road.

The new site, part of an industrial estate on West Road, N17 allows the brewery to increase its capacity by around 10-times. It sits alongside Redemption and One Mile End in Tottenham.

Renowned beer writers, leading brewers, London’s Czech community and local fans from Haringey all sat in the sunshine drinking Bohem’s eight different lagers including best-selling Jan Amos and Victoria.

Zdenek Kudr, co-founder of Bohem says the event went “amazingly well” adding that he hoped the attendees would go back to their local bars and pubs all over London and request Bohem beers to be put on the menu.

Na zdravi

Petr Skocek, head brewer at Bohem admis he had no idea prior to the event whether five or 500 people would turn up but says that it was possible Bohem would be opening its tap room on Spurs’ match days to encourage people to come and try its Czech inspired lagers.
