THEN THERE WAS LIGHT
Ha Ha! We put our swanky new glass in our restored pub lanterns over the weekend. Never again shall you hear people shouting “Na, this Pub’s called Truman’s, can’t find that Stag’s Head anywhere…” in to their mobile phones. They also give off an atmospheric green glow at night. Nice.
Check it out - it’s The Knocking Shop.
As you all know, a company called Truman’s once brewed beer in East London. From their establishment in 1666 they grew to be one of the great British institutions - even getting a mention in Dickens - until 1989 when it all went skee-whiff and their enormous brewery closed down to make way for a complex of cafes, shops and fixed-wheel bicycle emporia.
Earlier this year, a very nice pair of young chaps took it upon themselves to revive the Truman’s name and teamed up with the brewers at Nethergate to create a modern beer true to the spirit of Truman’s and their heritage in the East End. Their first brew is called Truman’s Runner and a very pleasant drop it is too.
