When Wimbledon Brewery opened last year we were incredibly excited at the prospect of having another incredible brewery so close to us. With head-brewer Derek Prentice leading the way, their initial offerings were cask only and we managed to nab one of the first batches for our Cask Beer Festival. They’ve since expanded their small package range and are now a permanent fixture across all three of our stores. For our Meet the Brewer event, we were joined by Derek and several of the team for six different beers, with some very cool keg vs bottle vs cask experiments going on. Wimbledon are forging their own path with more traditionally leaning beers and are brewing some of the best examples of their styles in London at the moment. Listen to one of the most respected person in the beer industry talk about their brewery and the wider beer scene.
