Our ‘Same but Different’ beers are packed with intense yet approachable flavours which will challenge and inspire, but above all remain balanced and drinkable.
Reunion is an award-winning, young brewer of Modern Session Beers. We strongly believe that you shouldn’t have to work hard to enjoy craft beer and Reunion is the only London brewery to put sessionability at the heart of its proposition. Each of our beers is carefully engineered to be easy drinking – the well balanced sum of its parts with no single ingredient coming too much to the fore. If a second Reunion doesn’t follow the first, we’ve manifestly failed.
