Meantime Yakima Red

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.

Yakima Valley in America’s Washington State is one of the world’s greatest hop-growing regions – there’s a global waiting list for many of the hops grown there. Not surprising when you experience their unparalleled aromas and flavours, packed full of citrus and tropical fruits, from mango to clementine. We hand-select five varieties of these hops for our American-style red ale – they pack it full of bags of character with spectacular tropical fruit and grapefruit flavours and give it a subtle and satisfying bitterness. Our Yakima Red gets its unforgettable deep ruby colour from a combination of British and German malts, which also combine to give this crowd-pleaser its medium to full body. Something you wouldn’t always expect from a 4.1% ABV beer. Yakima Red’s hoppy citrus bitterness makes it a cracking match for anything meaty, so dig into crispy roast pork, spare ribs or an elegant plate of charcuterie.
