Meantime’s tanking it at three new pubs

Posted at 4:30 pm, April 4, 2013 in Food & Drink

To go out and get tanked has been given a whole new meaning by the people behind Meantime Brewing, who have just installed ‘tank beer’ in three Young’s pubs. These handsome copper tanks sit on the bar and dispense unfiltered, unpasteurised fresh lager that has been delivered by tanker from the Meantime brewery, and then continues to mature in the pub. We tried it in The Grove pub in Balham, to see what a £4.45 pint of lager tastes like. We were impressed: it was as different from commercial, mass-produced lagers as Prague pivo is from a supermarket four-pack. Malty, hoppy and lightly citruous, and at 4.5% abv, flavoursome without being headache-inducing. Two other pubs in south-west London are also serving the these same Meantime tank beers: The Windmill on Clapham Common, and The PloughGuy Dimond
