These days, it's no surprise when London gets one or two new microbreweries in a week. But it's about to get 10 in one fell swoop... and they're all under the same roof.
Bermonsey's Ubrew — which invites people to make their own beer — has announced it will unleash 10 new commercial brewers onto the scene in August, thanks to their brand new 800 litre brewing kit.
Alright, you might say it's not 10 new microbreweries as such, but we're positively drooling at the scope of beer styles these 10 new licensed brewers are going to dream up. More brewers will inevitably follow too.
Says Ubrew co-founder, Matt Denham: "We’ve been producing and selling some really interesting small batch for the past year or so. Some of these have had rave reviews, including Donald Chump, Heather On Earth and Ride the Mega Hippo."
Now, the brewery wants to bring more of its members' beer onto the market, and in larger quantities.
To help with the upsize, Ubrew has recruited former Wild Beer man Johnny Clayton. He'll be putting the 10 new commercial brewers through their paces this month, and getting them up to code on the new equipment, before they release their brews to the public from this autumn.
In the meantime, Ubrew is inviting people to taste its newest range of pales ales at its taproom, on 6 August, as part of London Beer City.
