Meantime started life in a small Greenwich flat in 1999, when Alastair Hook and some friends decided that the market was missing real craft beer. 

With a move to Penhall Road to open their brewery, Meantime set out to build the largest and most expensive start up brewery in the UK for over 80 years. With a growing demand for Meantime Beer, the brewery needed to expand! In April 2000, Meantime's first brew was packaged and they haven't looked back since.

Today, Meantime own a chain of pubs, alongside their wide array of beers available on the market.
