The pair’s American pale ale cask beer is now available across south London

Bar staff at The Greyhound on High Street have transformed their home-brewing hobby into a brand-new brew at their pub.

Shift leader Jake Regan-Fleckney and bar associate Matthew Walden struck up a relationship with Portobello Brewing Company and were given the chance to produce one of their beers at the west London brewery.

The result, an American pale ale cask beer known as California Soul, is now available at 20 Wetherspoon pubs in south-west and south-east London, including The Greyhound.

Mr Regan-Fleckney said: “We were brewing in a shed, in Matt’s garden, and then in a room in his house in Bromley, but now we have launched California Soul – thanks to Portobello – and it is completely out there.

“At the meet-the-brewers launch event, we were the brewers!”

The pair are now better known as Three Hounds Beer Company.
