Truman's asks Eastenders to 'find us a brewery'

Published:  26 January, 2012

East London beer brand Truman's, is offering a year's supply of beer to the person that can find a site for its new brewery.

After searching hard over the last year for potential sites, and after a few near misses the brewery has decided to tap into local knowledge.

James Morgan, who re-founded the company alongside Michael-George Hemus in 2010, said: "East London is a big place and not every potential site is currently on the market.

"As such, we thought it would be wise to 'crowdsource' our search and tap into the local knowledge of East Londoners."

A year's supply of beer - 500 bottles of Truman's Runner ale - is on offer to the person that finds the eventual site.

A 12-bottle case of Runner will be given to anyone that sends in details of a site of real interest and all of those that enter will be invited to the opening party at the new brewery.

Truman's was brewed in East London for more than 300 years, most recently at the Black Eagle Brewery in Brick Lane, where production stopped in 1989.

Following its re-founding in 2010, Truman's has been brewed under licence.
