Meantime London Pale Ale

From his flat in Greenwich, our founder Alastair Hook started us off on our mission to brew beers that are full of flavour and light on compromise – so the thirsty city’s love affair with proper beer began. We travel the world to source the best ingredients and spend up to six weeks brewing our beers, because if something is worth doing, we do it like we mean it.

150 years ago, London brewers had to import Californian hops to meet demand for the popular pale ale beer style. We happily continue this tradition and every year our Brewmaster travels to America’s Yakima Valley to hand-select some of the world’s finest hops, to make sure our London Pale Ale tastes just as it should do, year in, year out. We blend buckets full of American Cascade and Centennial hops with Kentish Goldings from just up the road to give our London Pale Ale the crisply refreshing, perfectly bitter finish that you’d expect from a quality pale ale. The American hops give aromas and flavours of citrus fruit, balanced by the ‘hopsack’ aromas from the Kentish hops. London Pale Ale goes best with foods that have a bit of bite. Think a slightly spicy penne arrabiata or punchy curry and your taste buds are in for a treat.
