Another day and another food-based social enterprise that I get the pleasure of working with, it’s a hard life!

Drink beer and feel good about it, sometimes it’s a tough life supporting social enterprises…! Ignition is a fantastic organisation, making a big impact in Lewisham. I’ve now had the pleasure of visiting their taproom twice (once with an informative tour of the brewery by the wonderful Tash), and drinking their beer on many more occasions. The beer stands up against other better known craft beer brands, so make the switch now!
