RAW - as natured intended, Truman’s Raw tank beer is all about freshness and flavour.
Transported direct from the brewery in Hackney Wick, Truman’s Raw, is completely untouched by light, added gas or any other processes – it is unpasteurised and unfiltered which means it tastes as if the beer were poured ‘raw’ straight from the tanks in the brewery.
Our friends at The Eagle, situated on iconic Ladbroke Grove, will be the first location to serve Truman's Raw direct from the tank. The Eagle was historically a Truman’s pub, making it the natural choice for our first foray into tank lager. The pub will offer Truman’s Raw Tank beer – giving regulars a chance to have their very own tankard glass kept on site to drink from on every visit.
This is a hugely exciting opportunity and we're delighted to be working closely with the team at Hippo Inns to bring our brewery fresh Truman's Raw beer to the drinkers of London for the first time. The fact the Eagle was originally a Truman's pub is the icing on the cake!
The pub will offer all-day dining serving up a mixture of British classics with a Bavarian twist in a cosy and stylish setting. The mouth-watering menu created by Head Chef Stan Perry (ex Soho House) will feature dishes including venison carpaccio, crispy knuckle of pork with fried potato dumplings, smoked trout salad and chicken schnitzel with fried duck egg. All the plates have been created using flavours that compliment the beer, and the specials board will have suggested beer pairings for each dish. The knowledgeable staff will be kitted out in traditional beer aprons and will be on hand to suggest the perfect beer to match diners’ food. Regular food and beer tastings will run as part of the pub’s programme.
The light and spacious venue will occupy two floors with the upstairs area housing a dedicated Truman’s bar. Combining both contemporary and classic interiors, the modern light fittings and artwork will be juxtaposed with traditional British pub furnishings including an open fire, original building features and our Truman’s tanks, which will be seen above the circular bar with blackboards featuring the dates of brewing. The bar will provide a focal point where guests will be able to choose from many traditional and interesting craft beers, ciders, cocktails and wines.
