Meantime Brewing Beer Tour of London
Last updated on November 15th, 2015 at 12:07 pm
One of London’s finest brewers Meantime has launched the UK’s first ever ‘hidden audio tour’ of London’s brewing history starting from the 18th century right through to the amber nectar we drink today!
The tour has been made in partnership with innovative new platform Recho. The downloadable app allows Joes to leave virtual audio messages in locations using a geo-tag. When you open Recho in a location, you’ll be able to listen to audio messages that have been strategically left there.
Meantime have a created a tour that spans the Southbank of the Thames so craft beer fans from across the city can learn about the rich history of the city’s drinking heritage with a series of recordings on Recho.
The recordings are only available at significant locations from London’s brewing past and are narrated by leading names in British brewing, featuring beer experts, journalists and celebrity craft beer fanatics such as broadcaster Danny Wallace and Alastair Hook, Founder and Brewmaster of Meantime Brewing.
Starting around London Bridge, the tour will take you a good couple of hours but the walk soaks up some of London’s best scenery and you’ll be able to taste all of Meantime delights when you end the tour at the Meantime Brewery in Greenwich. Perfect for a sunny afternoon!
We’d thoroughly recommend doing the Meantime Brewery Tour too where you’ll learn about the history of Meantime, sample plenty of their beers and learn how the magic happens. To take the Meantime Recho Brewing tour of London, simply download the free Recho app from the app store and head Thrale Street to begin! Check out the Meantime Brewing Website for more details.
