i could spend all day at crate, london’s craft beer brewery and pizzeria in hackney wick. not only is the pizza delicious, but it’s vegan-friendly when ordered without cheese (the menu even has the v word on it!) and the staff are happy to throw on some extra toppings in place of the dairy. while not all of the beer at crate is suitable for vegans, they are experimenting with animal-free finings and i was able to get a lovely vegan stout on cask. go support this place and their vegan beer when you’re in london. and order the sage truffle pizza with shredded potatoes, it’s mind-blowing.
