My first visit - arrived just after opening time at 6 - a few others in. I was impressesd by the space - very well done and bigger than I had imagined. Knowledgeable and helpful barman.
3 other new own brews on but didn't note the ABV so can't add: HMS Minnow, Castle on the Hill and Hellfire Corner.
|Breakwater - Paper Aeroplane Fight||6.10||A wonderful brew. |
|Breakwater - Dover's Pale Ale (DPA)||3.80|
|Breakwater - Cow Juice Milk Stout||5.00||Not Tried|

Early evening. I arrived at the very end of a brewery tour for local CAMRA members. A free bar for all tonight as the licence to sell doesn't start until tomorrow following a licensing cock up. Very enthusiastic brewer and Guv was constantly soliciting feedback. I took just one chance to sample one of the many fizz beers, a Ramsgate (Gadds') / Breakwater collaboration "Endeavor" at 4.5% but my belch glands were quickly activated.
|Breakwater - Dockers Porter||4.10||Nowt but a good nourishing brew|
|Breakwater - Test Pale #1||3.50||Delicious for its low abv, total clarity|

Attempted evening visit. Had researched opening hours on Twitter before I left London at 6pm and they were 12-10 today. Arrived just before 9 to find place in darkness and less signs of life than on Mars. Subsequently found out had been closed all day - would an explanation and apology in the front door window have gone amiss? Told later in The Thirsty Scarecrow that there had been numerous groups who had "tried" the Breakwater all day and come back there disappointed.

Phil Lowry made me very welcome, I was given a lightning tour of the brewery and we discussed his articles in BEER magazine.
I also took the opportunity to sample a few of the keg products including Augustiner Helles.
|Breakwater - Test Pale #1||3.50||A good London Pale Ale.|
|Breakwater - Dockers Porter||4.10|
