The Late Knights brewery in Penge has opened its first pub amid the bright lights of Brockley. A brewery tap, as such a pub is known, is often a good thing – you’ll be getting the beers served as the brewery intended. But this is no ordinary pub, as it has no bar. That’s right, nothing to lean across while trying to get the bar staff’s attention, nowhere to rest your beer mat, and nothing to lean on while scribbling on the back of a fag packet. Instead, beers are dispensed by friendly staff next to the barrels at the side of the room. Cosy.
