British supermarkets are woefully behind the times when it comes to beer, but as mentioned in the guide entry for its Canary Wharf branch (p125), Waitrose currently provides about the best choice. Although the Docklands shop seems to have a slight edge in terms of selection, it’s still worth popping into this outlet in the vast Stratford City mall if you’re passing – as well you might be, since Tap East is just around the corner. Particularly attractive on the domestic shelves are the good ranges from Fuller’s and Thornbridge, alongside offerings from Bath, BrewDog, McMullen, St Peter’s, Skinners and Marston’s. The import shelves are less well endowed but do encompass Chimay Bleue, Warsteiner and own brand Czech and German beers. For more about the setting see the review of the Cow.
