    What's up guys! I'm heading to the UK in June and was looking for some suggestions to make sure I get the most out of the beer scene over there. At this point I'm tripping down to Dorset for about 4 days and then headed back up to London - I'm open to anything and everything in, around, and between those two points (I know that's a lot). Specifically though, I'd really like to visit some smaller, local breweries that are making some killer stuff.

    I sell Meantime's beer in California and dig it, how is the brewery? Worth spending the time there?

    How is Corfe Castle Brewery?

    Seriously appreciate the help and if anyone is interested in me getting a few bottles out there from California please let me know, would love to get some kind of in-person trade going!

    Not sure about Dorset, Somerset/Bristol is probably a lot better.

    Whereabouts in Dorset are you going?

    Meantime Greenwich Union and Meantime Old Brewery are about five minutes walk apart in the historic Royal Borough of Greenwich, good range of bottled beers, cask ales and the Old Brewery in the Old Royal Naval Museum grounds is the test brew house and sells beers unlikely to be found elsewhere.

    We're going to be on the East side of Dorset in Burton.

    I'm really excited to checkout Meantime. We only get a handful of their beers out here, but I dig them. Thanks for the info!
