Meantime Brewing Company creates Pop-Up Bar

Made from shipping containers the new BeerBox is the latest edition to the thriving Greenwich Peninsula

London’s leading modern craft brewer, Meantime Brewing Company, has launched a brand new pop-up concept, located on Green Peninsula Square.

Created with design agency Hooperberg, the two-storey ‘BeerBox’ has been constructed from customised shipping containers. The bar will serve Meantime’s core range of beers, as well as the most recent limited editions and seasonal brews. In addition, the BeerBox will also be home to the exclusive Peninsula Pale Ale which will be dispensed using the company’s state of the art Brewery Fresh tank beer concept.

The BeerBox will be open all year round and with an open top roof terrace above bar level, it’s the perfect place for chilling in the sunshine.

Nick Miller, CEO at Meantime says: “Meantime aims to innovate and pioneer with its craft beer and have looked at many options to bring its range to the drinker. With this in mind, we wanted to create an interesting space and experience for our drinkers where they can enjoy modern craft beer in an entertaining environment. The BeerBox provides us with the perfect opportunity to educate consumers about our craft in a fantastic location just minutes from our brewery.”

Meantime has partnered with Knight Dragon, the development company charged with rejuvenating the Greenwich Peninsula area, and agreed the prime location for the BeerBox, just 200 yards from North Greenwich tube.

Richard Margree, CEO at Knight Dragon says: “It was important for us to partner with an exciting brand, with local roots and a unique product offering. Meantime have been going from strength to strength and they have come up with something fresh and innovative for this prominent space”.

The construction of the BeerBox is part of Meantime’s ongoing investment programme which has already seen the brewery expand extensively.

The BeerBox officially opened on 7th August at Greenwich Peninsula Square, with a performance from indie rockers We Are Scientists.
