Camden Town Brewery

One of the pioneering new wave of London breweries, Camden Town Brewery came into being only in late 2010 when Australian Jasper Cupaidge followed up good feedback to his original homebrews in his Hampstead pub, The Horseshoe.

With brewing in the blood – his family owned the McLaughlin Brewery in Queensland – Jasper took the plunge and, rather than start small, went large and invested in a high tech stainless steel brewkit able to take him to the forefront of brewing.

Fuller's

With a history stretching back to 1845 and always the need to look after hordes of thirsty Londoners, a tour around Fuller's was always going to be interesting. And so it is. With upwards of 12,000 visitors per year, this is a welcoming, well-run operation. It offers an insight into the days of old, when workers had their daily ration of beer to ease them through their hot, sweaty days, to modernity, as epitomised by the bottling hall's recent recruit, a £2.5m robot.

Kernel Brewery

Evin O'Riordain set up his brewery beneath a London railway arch in late 2009, after collecting a mere two years' worth of experience as a homebrewer. What began as a small operation, suppliying a loyal following of London bars and restaurants, has since grown a tad larger, moving just down the road to a bigger premises. What has continued is the Open Saturday Mornings, to sell directly.

Meantime Brewing Company

Alastair Hook always was a man with a mission. Recalling his first beer – a pint of Theakston's Best Bitter when he was 13 with his dad – it was a trip to California and exposure to the craft brewing scene there that made him realise that there was glory in beer beyond simply cask-brewed brews. Years later, having studied at the UK's brew-university Heriot-Watt, spent time in Germany at the world's top brew-school Weihenstephan, founded breweries for the likes of top chef Oliver Peyton and created Freedom brewery in Fulham, Alastair struck out on his own in 2000 to found Meantime.

The Old Brewery

Following a 140-year hiatus, beer is being brewed again at one of Britain’s most naval historic spots, the Old Royal Naval College site in Maritime Greenwich. Meantime's The Old Brewery links seamlessly with Discover Greenwich, the newly opened visitor centre for the Old Royal Naval College site.  ‘In 1750, London was the centre of the brewing world,' says Meantime founder, Alastair Hook. It has been disappointing to see it losing its lead. I am happy to be able to put London back where it belongs.’
