Evening until nearly midnight. Very hospitable location for a second consecutive SE London branch CAMRA AGM here. The warm rolls with choice of beef brisket or pork were almost too full to handle!!

Brewery bar regularly open on Friday evenings I think. A small gathering of staff, friends and local workers are present when I arrive.

The brewery bar is opening here at 11am on Saturdays and all four handpumps were in action today when I visited just before 12. Only a couple of other customers at this time – word still spreading about this brewery I think. Beer much better than on my first visit.

Advertised first opening for this new brewery venture. In truth they are not really ready. The brewing equipment is still being welded together as we watch and today’s beers have been brewed on a pilot kit. The cask beers were only racked last night and have not settled. A promising development though and nice to meet the people involved.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Southwark - LPA London Pale Ale 4.00AcceptableYellowish-gold in colour. Citrusy. But this pint unsettled and yeasty.
Southwark - Peter's Stout8.90AcceptableFrom a bottle. A very thick, black Imperial Stout. A bit lacking in carbonation.
Southwark - Bermondsey Best4.40Not Tried
