New-Old Brewery Almost Here
Here are some exclusive photos, courtesy of Rod, showing the arrival of the new equipment for the Old Brewery. It’s all coming on apace over at the ORNC, and the new brewery/bar/bistro is scheduled for the third week in March.
I’m very excited, despite not being a beer drinker, just because it all feels so right. The old brewery was here, it’s been excavated properly and it’s going to have a real purpose again (I don’t know what it was used for in the intervening years, but I’m guessing something dull like deckchair storage.)
It’s a local brewery, making quality beers and – well – let’s face it, a company called Meantime really does need to be at least within spitting distance of the Meridian line.
I’m particularly looking forward to the bistro (that will be the non-beer-drinker in me) and the promised exhibition about the history of brewing on the site.
So – make a date in your diary for the third week in March, when you will be able to make like a Pensioner and drink real Greenwich Hospital beer again, albeit (hopefully) without the attendant dysentery that came with the original.
BTW, does anyone know what happened to the Wood Wharf restaurant? I’ve tried to visit it three times but each time it wasn’t serving food and didn’t look like it ever had. I hope it will start soon. I could do with a new restaurant to visit.
