Good for: Having its own hop farm

Meantime started life in a small flat in Greenwich in 1999 where Alastair Hook and friends hatched a plan to brew their own beer. Having settled on a location in Greenwich, the group set about founding “the largest and most expensive” start up brewery seen in the UK in 80 years. Nearly 16 years later the it is still going strong. Last year the brewery released its Thames Hop IPA produced from a hop farm located directly on the Greenwich Meridian Line. Having planted the 48 hop roots in 12 wooden planters on a site next to the O2 arena, Meantime has claimed that the venture represents London’s first permanent hop farm in over 100 years. It marks the latest move by Meantime to spark public interest in London’s brewing history and follows its 2013 initiative to make a crowd-sourced beer from hops grown by different people around London. The name Thames Hop IPA was chosen from suggestions offered by the brand’s Twitter and Facebook audience.
