Overview

Take a tour of the largest craft brewery in London. Hear the history of craft brewing, experience the sights and sounds of a real working craft brewery and taste a range of the many different beers Meantime produces. (54 different styles in 2013 alone!) One part stand up comedy, one part history lesson, one part science lesson & one part going down the pub!

We have been on many brewery tours around Europe and this was definitely the best. You spend about 30mins touring the actual plant, seeing the usual machinery and learning about how Meantime beer is made. What made this tour so amazing was our guide: Ryan....More
