Catford Mews to launch their first beer, Catford Mews Scratch IPA

Catford Mews are thrilled to be launch their first beer, Catford Mews Scratch IPA, with a fun filled launch party on 25th March. Come down to the mews and enjoy live music, plus free Catford Mews Scratch IPA for the first 25 Catford Mews members, and a special price on the new beer all night.

With an amber glow and sweet toffee undertones the new Scratch IPA, ABV: 4.8%, will cost only £5.20. The Catford Mews team made Scratch IPA with local Brockley Brewery, opting for bittering hops that impart a refreshingly clean bitterness and a fruity flavour with a hint of blackcurrant. The beer was dry-hopped with two American varieties that give the beer additional earthy and thirst-quenching citrus notes. Scratch boasts a well-balanced flavour and, like a traditional IPA, sits on the hoppier side of bitterness.

In addition to the new home brew beer, guests will be able to enjoy wine and delicious themed cocktails at the bar and coffee from Compound Coffee, plus treats from the Catford Mews food stalls including vegan Scandi inspired Daun’s Deli, Caribbean infused patties Patty Man, and Japanese street food from FUSÉ.

Catford Mews’ brew, Scratch IPA will be available on tap only, and will be available from Catford Mews and a limited amount will be available at the Brockley taproom.

About Really Local Group

Founded in 2017, Really Local Group creates and restores cultural infrastructure by ‘putting the heart back into the high street’, which will act as a catalyst for the wider regeneration of the local area. The company provide inclusive and affordable venues for communities, which are uniquely designed to reflect their locality, and act as a community ‘hub’ for the area.

The venues always have a number of cinema screens at their heart, along with a live entertainment space, flexible workspaces, a food market featuring local traders, a full-service bar stocking local produce, where available, and a community-based events programme.

The venues are designed to meet the varying needs of the locals throughout the day and night, for example starting with a focus on ‘kids and carers’ in the mornings, to retirees in the afternoons, and just about everyone in the evenings.

Their first venue, Catford Mews, officially opened in September 2019, and will be followed by several additional sites already in the pipeline which will be delivered over the next three years. All projects will be in areas that have suffered from a lack of cultural infrastructure.

The schemes are truly bespoke and reflective of their locality, often created by repurposing existing buildings and working with local craftsmen and designers to ensure maximum efficiency and sustainability.  The schemes are delivered as quickly and cost effectively as possible, without compromising on quality. By thinking ‘outside the box’ and approaching development differently, Really Local Group are able to open new sites within months of starting on site.


About Preston Benson

Preston is the Founder and visionary behind Really Local Group.

Originally from North Dakota, USA, Preston is a qualified accountant, formerly of Deloitte, and has experience in advising on and negotiating property acquisition deals. In 2005 he moved to London with the accountancy firm, dealing with property and hospitality clients, and in the last 10 years he has also worked in the serviced apartment industry and managed the real estate asset portfolio of a family office, which included a number of shopping centres.

During this time Preston became acutely aware that the majority of developers who claimed they were ‘regenerators’, were actually developing sites with a ‘top down’ approach, with little real consultation with the locals as to what they really wanted for the area, and with very little ‘social conscience’.  This was leading to identikit high streets and a clear neglect of localism.

New to the London property market, Preston wanted to break this mould, to deliver true regeneration and to shake up cultural development by launching venues that would truly have the local community’s best interests at its core.
