Bateman's Brewery are on their way back in London. After a few years focusing on their own pubs and traditional areas of support around the brewery, they are now having a concerted effort at new trade in the London area.
They are hosting meet the brewer style tasting evenings at the following Nicholson pubs on the following dates :
5th November - Ye Olde Watling - 6pm - 8pm - Watling Street EC4
26th November - 5pm - 7pm Wellington on the Strand
27th November - 6pm - 8pm White Lion in Covent Garden
No tickets required, just turn up.
Regional family breweries have been successful in the London area in the last year or two, notably Timothy Taylor and St Austell.
Bateman's beers are generally good and deserve wider availability.
I hope to make it to one of the above events to reacqauint myself with their range.
