This award-winning Bermondsey brewery combines London’s brewing heritage with modern methods with the aim to create classic and innovative beer styles. To meet increasing wholesale and retail demand, the company is seeking investment to triple production and expand taproom space.
At Anspach & Hobday, we aim to brew and curate a better beer experience through a mix of classic styles and modern beers.
The Porter leads our range (RateBeer Global Top 50 Porters) alongside The Pale, The IPA, The Lager, The Smoked Brown and The Cream Ale, complemented by seasonal, experimental and collaborative beers, such as The Story Saison (with Michelin star Restaurant Story), The Grapes (with Renegade Wines), & The ESB (with Fuller’s).
The UK craft beer sector is growing 7.3% annually (May 2018); so are we with 50% YOY wholesale growth (from £195k in 2017 to £294k in 2018, overall EBITDA -£50.9k). Rapidly approaching capacity, we are fundraising to triple production and expand our retail presence.
