Signature Brew create award-winning beers inspired by music. They’ve also brewed with alt-J, Frank Turner and more. SIBA crowned them Brewery Business of the Year 2018, citing innovation and growth as signs of a ‘flourishing brewery on its way to greatness.’ They seek investment to treble capacity.
Founded in 2011, we’re a multi-award winning brewery based in East London. We’re also the Society of Independent Brewers’ (SIBA) Brewery Business of the Year 2018.
Everything we do is infused with music. We’re as passionate about music as we are about our beer. It’s what makes us different and gives us our edge. From alt-J to Mastodon, we love brewing with bands and getting renowned artists up to their elbows in hops. Foo Fighters even requested our beer at their pop-up pub!
We’ve grown revenues at an average rate of 78% YoY over the last 3 years (Last 12 months revenue £1.13m, EBITDA -£25k), with last 6 months EBITDA £33k). We expect to brew a million pints this year & our core range including Roadie IPA & Studio Pilsner are found at venues, festivals and supermarkets, as well as bars & pubs nationwide.
Our current brewery is at capacity, so to keep up with demand we’re seeking investment to:
- Move to a nearby East London site which will house a new state-of-the-art brewhouse, trebling capacity from day one to future proof the brewery. The site will underpin the next 10 years continued growth, expanding UK distribution & growing exports
- Bring all production in-house. We’ve recently had to brew some of our pilsner kegs off site due to capacity constraints
- In addition to our new taproom, we plan to open 2 further taprooms to showcase our beers & host events
