Fire at Camden

Evening all,

just a quickie this evening. Heard the news an hour or so ago that Camden Town Brewery has had a fire in site.
Apparently everyone is ok and the worst is a delay in production.

My thoughts are with Jasper and his team at the moment, the sooner they get brewing again, the better!

All the best folks!

Update from Jasper is it's not as bad as it sounds. Apparently the boiling system had an internal fire and turned itself into a bit of a mess. Everyone still upbeat and the show will go on. Craft beer really is HOT right now!

Bad news, they're a fine outfit. Best of luck to them.

Isn't the boiling system a pretty crucial part of a brewery?

Best wishes to Camden. I had one of their beers tonight and it was rather nice.

Barm - It is, but Jasper's reckoning it's going to be about a weeks break in production.

I was up at the brewery yesterday (I use it as my remote office when I'm working in London!) and they've got a replacement part coming, they've got beer in tank and they're taking the time to go through a thorough clean and inventory. It's an inconvenience rather than the end of the world!
