With the World Cup now out of the way everyone at the brewery is gearing up for the impending move to the new production brewery in Blackwall Lane.
The new state-of-the-art brewhouse will instantly quadruple Meantime’s production capability and enable them to continue satisfying the demand from our thirsty customers for their award-winning range of draught and bottled beers as they continue to outgrow the current Penhall Road site.
The photos below detail some of the progress being made on the site including the arrival of the brand new Lauter Tun (left) in June and the new brewhouse (right). By the end of the Summer Meantime Brewery hope to have the first beer brewed at Blackwall Lane packaged into keg and bottle and are busy building stock at the current brewery ahead of a four-week shutdown.
