The Result

Time to Time

By Julia Bickerstaff

In the six weeks it’s taken us to brew this beer, expert neon artist Julia Bickerstaff has created a Meantime-inspired neon installation for our pop-up Make Time For It bar. This Saison de Nuit beer is packed full of vibrant and elegant fruit flavours, creating a real flavour sensation that will light up your taste buds. #MTFILeeds

CRAFTED BY MEANTIME IN SIX WEEKS

Glass has been worked and manipulated for centuries for its beauty and versatility. So many uses but by far the biggest use of glass is in light movement and control from windows to decoration. Julia Bickerstaff has worked glass all her working life having a passion for glass even at school. Today Julia makes creative neon and other art based pieces, from small work to large public space pieces.
