Idea

Bedlam relaunched in 2015 with a simple model - brew awesome beer, tell people about it and deliver it to them. Since 2015 revenue has grown over 250% and in the 12 months to 31 Mar ’20, we sold over 655,000 pints to our thirsty customers, cheers!

Turnover in the same period was up over 27% year on year, with 95% coming from the sales of draft beer to the ‘ontrade’ (pubs, both directly and via national pub chains or wholesalers).

This is a performance we’re extremely proud of considering average growth in turnover for our peers in the Society of Independent Brewers during 2019 was around 2%, meaning that we must be doing something right!

Since lockdown, we have switched focus to our packaged business, growing sales by over 1,000% year on year with over 750 individuals having ordered directly via our website thus far.

Post lockdown, we have sold to over 200 separate trade outlets, including bottle shops, over 100 free houses, restaurants and pub companies such as the Ei Group, Wetherspoons and Laines in Sussex.

With considerable expansion potential at our site, a solid customer base of both on- and off-trade outlets as well as a growing direct customer base, and a highly experienced ex-industry team in place, we're ready to take up the challenge of becoming the number one craft brewery in Sussex, as well as a major player in Greater London, Surrey and Kent.
