Via the Brockley Central Facebook page, the team behind Crofton Park's excellent London Beer Dispensary writes:
Hey folks, Darren & Sam here, former Area Manager of Late Knights and Head Brewer of Late Knights Brewery. We understand that twitter has been going crazy with all sorts of gossip today, so thought we would clear a few things up.
The London Beer Dispensary, Brighton Beer Dispensary and The Brewery in Penge are no longer under the company of Late Knights for a number of reasons, of which we wont delve into.
Sam and I have started up a new company, along side Mr. Lawrence, to keep these places trading and push forwards. The brewery itself will be renamed and rebranded, still with the desire to be the heart of the great community that it's in.
We don't intend to change anything at the LBD, with the same great staff, beer and burgers. We have brought back Sunday Roasts and Lillian is taking care of all the hangovers with the Bloody Mary station on a Sunday.
In terms of the brewery, our sole focus is to brew consistently great beer that we can sell in our own bars as well as to free trade, keeping ourselves as local as possible. We will be looking to have this out in 6-8 weeks, with a few brewery names floating around, which we'll hopefully have decided by the end of the week.
We still see the LBD as the heart of Brockley and have thouroughly enjoyed integrating ourselves into the amazing community that we feel honoured to be a part of.
Feel free to pop in at any point and chat to Lils, Sam, Edd or Cadi behind the bar and we look forward to seeing you all again in the near future.

Salthouse Bottles, the new beer shop replacing Degustation on Coulgate Street, is opening next month and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to provide a growler service. Richard Salthouse writes:
We want to purchase a device known as a Pegas CrafTap, which is able to select and dispense a chosen beer into a glass bottle. At any given time, we plan to offer up to four choices of quality beer for growler-fill.
The growlers will have a 1 litre capacity, are made of amber glass and have an airtight swing-top seal. They are also printed with Salthouse Bottles branding. This is yours to keep, to fill, to use, to refill and to re-use. Once filled and sealed, your beer will stay fresh for weeks.
Rewards for supporters include growlers and T-shirts. To back the Kickstarter, click here.
