We love our name. It gives everyone a very clear idea of who we are and where we are coming from. But with the name comes a responsibility. We’re very aware of the great tradition that London has in making beer. So we need to make sure we are giving the people of Camden Town a beer they can be proud of. So far we seem to be doing pretty well - the beers are selling as fast as we can make them, and in 2014, we broke our own records and sold just over 7,600,000 pints. Camden Town beers are sold in bars as far away as Australia, Sweden and Japan. But whilst we’re really proud of our progress so far, we want to spread our name even further.
For a while it’s been obvious that we’ve outgrown the brewery (that we built from scratch) in the railway arches next to Kentish Town West overground station. Every year since 2010 we’ve been experiencing triple digit growth. At the moment all of our cans and bottled beer are made in our brewery in Camden, as well as most of our kegged beer. The rest of our keg beer has been brewed by a family owned brewery in Belgium. We love working with them, but it’s always been our dream to bring all of our production back to London.
So, over the last few months we’ve been looking for a new site to house our new brewery. We’ve identified three possible sites and are getting close to making our dream real. So watch this space for some exciting announcements coming up in the next few days.
