It will take place every Saturday between noon and 7pm, starting from this weekend, Saturday, 13th June. The address is Gosnells Meadery, Print Village, Chadwick Road, London SE15 4PU.
The drinks will be solely for take-away, but there is space available for alfresco seating later in the summer.
Tom Gosnell said: “We have so much space outside the meadery, and this will be a great opportunity to introduce visitors to what Anspach & Hobday and ourselves have to offer.
“I am personally besotted by honey, and I want to show the flavour-inspiring cleverness of the bee. All of our meads are sparkling and gluten free. Our 0.5% kombucha-like Low ALC is our starting point, launched in January; then you move on to our brightly coloured 4% ABV cans — Sour, Pink Hibiscus, Citra Sea and Hopped — launched last autumn; and our 5.5% orange blossom honey Classic. For real mead enthusiasts, we will also be selling our postcode-specific and vintage meads, which range from 6 to 12% ABV.”
He added: “Every Saturday, I envisage that our iced cocktail slush machine will be working overtime as we’ll be offering our iconic Meadaritas, and maybe a cocktail combining Anspach & Hobday Porter with rum and mead.”
Anspach & Hobday co-founder, Jack Hobday, said: “It’s going to be a collaboration with a difference. When Tom suggested it, it seemed such an obvious win-win, both for our customers and for theirs.
“Our Bermondsey Taproom and The Pigeon, our bar in Camberwell, are gearing up to sell take-away draught, but this collab will allow us to get back in the real world that much sooner. And to have a bit of much-missed fun.
“We will be offering 10% off ten or more cans, and we aim to have core range beers, such as The Pale Ale (4.4% ABV), The IPA (6.0%), The Cream Ale (4.5%), and The Lager (4.7%) available along with any specials, so the selection will change week on week.”
