Camden Town Brewery, the craft beer maker owned by Anheuser-Busch, has invested £30 million in a new brewing facility in the UK.
The environmentally friendly site in London covers a total area of 50,000 square feet and is ‘the largest investment in London’s brewing industry for three decades’. It will enable Camden Town to keep pace with increasing demand for its beers, which include its flagship lager, Camden Hells.
The facility, in Enfield, is eight miles northeast of the company’s existing brewery in Kentish Town, which will still be used as a test site for innovation, special brews and collaboration beers.
Camden Town Brewery founder and CEO Jasper Cuppaidge said: “The railway arches in Kentish Town will remain the heart and soul of Camden Town Brewery, but our expansion to Enfield allows us to increase our capacity so ultimately we can bring great beer to more people. It’s a phenomenal opportunity to extend into another North London community and to be a part of the impressive redevelopment that’s taking place in Enfield. We can’t wait to open our doors!”
The new brewhouse will have capacity to scale production to 400,000 hectolitres a year, and the investment will increase the size of Camden Town’s brewing team by 50%.
Alan Sitkin, a councillor for the London Borough of Enfield, hailed the brewer’s ‘huge investment’ and said that it was a reflection of the progress being made to regenerate the local area.
The new site is expected to open in July.
