Meantime brewers in Greenwich experiment with Cali-Belgian mash-up
THOSE crafty brewers at Meantime have experimenting in their microbrewery at Old Brewery by the Cutty Sark and have come up with the goods again.
London’s second largest brewer has launched its Cali-Belgian IPA, a mash up of noisey Californian hops and noisey Belgian yeast which combine to make a tangy, fruity, spice brew.
We’ve tried it and it is certainly worth a sup.
The beer fits Meantime’s craft brewing mantra – a reaction against flavourless beer - which beer sommelier Jack Stones described: “If we can afford it and it is going to make our beer taste better we get it in.”
Meantime has a permanent roster of 10 beers that are made at its Blackwall Lane brewery, which it supplements with six seasonal brews – the current one is Oktoberfest-inspired Fest Bier – made at its microbrewery.
The 6.8 per cent ABV Cali-Belgian IPA is part of the Brewers’ Collection, which is where the company’s 12 brewers get to experiment with different beers.
It comes in a 750ml bottle with a cork top and a fetching black presentation box and costs £9.99 at meantimebrewing.com or in the brewers’ shops.
