Among the despondency, some positive news for Charlton fans today.
The club have announced a multi-year partnership with Greenwich-based Meantime Brewery. The brewery is near the Blackwell Tunnel approach and just a mile and a bit away from The Valley.
These are the sort of companies the club should be partnering with and not dubious NFT companies. The new beers including the Anytime IPA and London will available in the ground from Saturday.
Credit to fan advisors Lucy Bishop and Lewis Catt for their work, and there is a video well worth a watch starring Scott Minto, Steve Brown and Alan Curbishley.

Yes interesting I normally use the refreshment facilities in upper North Stand I have commented before on the standard where children are being served light drinks and sweets beside people being served alcohol most bar staff haven’t a clue how to pour a pint let alone understanding the lingo
Must be about due to be fired
I saw Curbs handling a pressure tap on the CAFC official website. What I didn’t see was a handpump. I once thought we might see some decent Belgian beer at The Valley when RDuC owned the club… (OK, so now he only owns the ground and Sparrows Lane.) Do Meantime Brewing still brew any cask-conditioned ale? I know that London Pale Ale (4.3%abv) was once. I also remember self-professed ‘best brewer in the world’ Alistair Hook thought that the method of delivery of a beer was a ‘minor matter’. Anyway Hook sold Meantime Brewing to world giant Asahi (who own Fuller’s) so who knows? Brewery ownership mirrors Football Club ownership then… (i.e. the rich prosper…)
I notice among the hubbub, no price being mentioned. If it’s over a fiver (and I expect it will be) they can keep it.
Do you have a link to the video you mentioned. Meantime beers are good quality, 10 times better than John Smiths. Their brewery tour is well woth a try.
