Anspach & Hobday brewery plan to disrupt the dark beer market across the UK with London Black, their new Nitro-Porter. Started in Bermondsey, Anspach & Hobday brewery makes traditional beer modern. Averaging a 43% annual growth rate (2015-2020), we believe now is the time to invest in craft beer.

  • Achieved 31% Revenue Growth YoY (2020/2021), despite the pandemic .
  • Developed London Black, a nitro porter designed to challenge market leaders.
  • Planned production upgrades to double batch volume and efficiency.
  • Diverse Sales Mix: Wholesale, Supermarkets, Online and Taprooms.  

Idea

Anspach & Hobday started in a Bermondsey archway in 2014. We believe beer is about enjoyment & community. In 2019 we crowdfunded (542 investors, £525k raised, £3m valuation) and set up our Croydon Brewing site.

By March 2021, despite the pandemic, revenues grew 31% YoY (£812k, P&L: £16k). As draught beer sales sank through lockdowns, we launched our cans. Selling through bottle shops, online stores, Marks & Spencers and our webshop; can production grew from 0 to 74% of total volume.

Whilst navigating the pandemic we began development of a nitro-porter designed to rival Diageo’s Guinness. Launched in May 2021, London Black is already pouring at 24 pubs and distributed nationally with James Clay & Sons. A&H is already respected for London-style dark beers, namely our award-winning The Porter. London Black is set to build on this reputation.

Impressed with the initial traction & positive feedback, we're going to back this dark horse and plan to:

- Deliver production upgrades to support continued growth

- Double batch volume & efficiency

- Upgrade our canning line with a Nitro-Upgrade, to can London Black

- Support London Black and wholesale growth with marketing

London Black is our local answer to quench the thirst of a UK market that is pursuing local, independent quality over mass-produced quantity.

Invest today and join us as we grow & bring a local choice to our communities.
