Ten UK chefs and restaurants that make their own beer

Wagamama and Meantime

In 2017, Asian restaurant chain Wagamama collaborated with London’s Meantime Brewery to release two beers designed to complement its food.

Meantime developed Kansho, a zingy ginger and lime pale, and Kikku, a classic pale ale with a spicy chilli twist.

Brew master Ciaran Giblin worked closely executive chef at Wagamama, Steve Mangleshot, to experiment with different flavours and work out which combination would work best with Asian inspired dishes.

General manager at Meantime, Laura Edwards, added: “The beers are listed on the menu next to dishes they pair perfectly with, and the response so far from beer drinkers and foodies alike has been very positive”.
