The owner of a quirky microbrewery/taproom bar in Greenhithe has expressed delight after an application to make his business permanent was approved by Dartford Council this week.

Jack Wolfart, 35, was initially only granted temporary permission in 2017 to convert the building in 50 Wakefield Road into his No Frills Joe microbrewery and taproom. However, a successful appeal lodged by Mr Wolfart has seen this condition lifted and his microbrewery made permanent at it's current location.

According to a supporting statement lodged by Mr Wolfart, the one-year condition placed on his business was preventing "growth and expansion" and felt that "having a microbrewery in the borough adds diversity and vibrancy making Greenhithe and Swanscombe more desirable areas to live."

The No Frills Joe Taproom invites craft beer enthusiasts to come and enjoy a pint of in-house brew and is also the home of a monthly brewers club.

Council documents show that the microbrewery was only initially given temporary permission as its use would need to be monitored for noise complaints from nearby neighbours as the taproom is licensed to serve until 10pm.

However, as no complaints were received, council authorities saw no reason why the condition could be removed.

Speaking to News Shopper, Mr Wolfhart said he was pleased to hear that his business may continue normally and is looking forward to expanding his operations in the near future.

"Now we’re keen on signing the lease with our landlord for a future five years or maybe even longer.

"We’re trying to expand even more to the other side of the building once our landlord agrees to rent it to us.

"We're hoping to install a cold-storage fridge and possibly start brewing some barrel aged beers in the future as well," he said.

No Frills Joe produce a number of different types of tipple, including a stout, lager, pale ale and an American IPA, available for local beer buffs to come along and try.
