Hundreds of people attended a Croydon brewery’s first open day at the weekend.

The Cronx Brewery, based in New Addington, opened their doors on Saturday with beer, food and music all on offer.

A range of cask and kegged ales were available at the event and it seems the beer went down a treat with about 800 pints consumed on the day.

Beers from the Cronx and another Croydon brewery, Clarence and Fredericks, were sold on the day.

Croydon based BareBones Cue provided food with 14 hour cherrywood smoked pulled pork on offer. There was also music from D’lys and The Swamp.

Brewer Simon Dale said: “It went better than we could have hoped really.

“We were hopeful that we’d get a good crowd, but you never know with this kind of thing how many people will actually turn up, especially as it was our first Open Day.

“All the beers went down really well and we think there were around 800 pints drunk on the day.

“The music from both D’lys and The Swamp City Shakers was excellent and the food from Bare Bones Cue was fantastic. We’ll definitely be planning to have another one in a few months. Watch this space.”
