Where residential London meets industrial in North Greenwich sits a giant grey structure that is the Meantime Brewery. Named after Greenwich's most famous feature (time itself), this brewery is the largest to open in the capital since the 1930s.
Every weeknight and weekend members of the public can venture inside on various behind-the-scenes tours with tutored tastings. Visitors can hop on the classic tour, or arrange a bespoke private tour (groups of 10-28).
You can also sign up for beer appreciation workshops (£90) at the brewery, which you can take over the course of a day or a few evenings.
Tour the first and the largest modern craft beer brewery in the UK and take in everything we have to offer, with a wide selection of our beers to be enjoyed.
Now is your chance to come and see where it all begins. Over two hours we hope to take you on a journey about why your beer smells, tastes and looks like it does, as well as the history of beer, ending in a walkthrough of our state of the art operation. In 2016 we were voted the best brewery tour in the UK by Trip Advisor.
As well as our award winning brewery tours the site has a fully stocked shop with our full range of beers, and a showcase taproom in the form of the tasting rooms and two delve even deeper check out our The Knowledge course.

A fabulous tour, hosted by the incredibly wonderful host, Big Al. A funnier man in London you will not meet. Genuinely, he made the tour what it was. With a more dull host, I don't think the tour would be particularly memorable, although still not bad value at £20 per person. You get to try 4 of Meantime Brewery's best lagers, ales and reds, and are guided through the flavours by your aforementioned tour guide. Big Al actually discusses in detail the food choices which would go well with each beer, and is clearly a bit of a foodie, which even adds to the experience. You are then guided on a short walking tour through the brewery itself, with the whole tour lasting roughly 2 hours. Definitely worth a visit, even if it is a little off the beaten track in North Greenwich.
An excellent tour, with a highly entertaining and knowledgeable tour guide. I took my Dad for his Birthday and it was a great present, you get lots of beer to drink! We went on the pie and pint tour for £30 per head and the food was lovely too, very filling! I would recommended this tour, I think it would be especially good for stag groups and it's a great gift idea.
