Meantime Brewery Tour

A couple of weeks ago I went to the Meantime Brewery in Greenwich to do the “Pie & Pint” tour. It was a great experience and excellent value – £30 for the tour, a very nice steak pie and as much beer as you wanted. I got there about half an hour early, was shown to the tasting room – pictured, showing a wonderful beer and glass collection – and promptly offered a drink. I was somewhat hungover, but the cool Pacific Pale Ale I had handed to me sorted me right out.
As the rest if the group arrived, we we’re given more beer and then the brewing process was explained by our great guide Jack. Then we we’re shown around the Brewery itself – a large room with huge stainless steel containers. Then for the tasting. Expert guidance and a diverse range of Meantime beers made for a very enjoyable experience.
Then the pie and more beer. Delicious!
We stayed, sipped and chatted to the very knowledgable Jack until 4pm, and eventually had to leave because the next group we’re coming in.
Over the last few years Meantime have grown in size and popularity, cropping up on tap in more and more pubs – which is a very good thing as their London Pale Ale and London Lager are both very crisp, refreshing and far too drinkable.
I can thoroughly recommend the Meantime tour to any beer fanatics, not so much for the tour itself but for the tutored tasting. Excellent value and insights
For more information, check out their website, pubs in London and also supermarkets – I’ve spotted their beers in Sainsburys and Waitrose so far. Very promising.
