Meantime founder Alastair Hook was one of the founding fathers of the craft beer movement in the UK. After training at the world's oldest brewery, Weihenstephan, in Bavaria, he came back full of ideas about how lagers and ales should be brewed and served – namely cold and carbonated, with plenty of character to them. After working at several brewpubs he founded Meantime Brewery in Greenwich. Their lagers, pales and wheats were a huge part of the revitalisation of beer, and now its hard to find a pub in London that doesn't have Meantime on tap or in the fridge. They brew accessible, well-hopped and carefully brewed beers for a new generation of discerning drinkers.
