Meantime re-launches Helles lager

15 June, 2017

London-based brewery, Meantime Brewing Company, has re-launched its London Helles lager throughout the UK following a six-year hiatus.

The Bavarian-style lager was first brewed by Meantime in 2004, to replicate the beer originally brewed in 19th century Germany.

London Helles, 4.2% ABV has been brewed using German Hallertau Blanc hops alongside Spalt Select hops and will be available in on-trade outlets throughout London.

Ciaran Giblin, brewmaster at Meantime Brewing Company, said: “Our original Meantime Helles was one of our most popular beers since we started brewing it in 2004. With the traditional Helles balance between malt and hop flavours and aromas, this was a beer that kept people coming back for more.

“We know that beer fans are increasingly looking for a lager that offers something a little different, so now is the perfect time to bring our London Helles to the taps, and satisfy beer lovers’ thirst for a really tasty pint of beer."
