2011

In July 2011 we opened our first pub in the City of London. The Craft Beer Co. Clerkenwell, opened to great reviews and at the helm, Martin placed Tom Cadden to help bring his idea to fruition.

2012

We opened our second, third and fourth pubs in 2012, this time in Brighton, Islington and Brixton.

We won our first CAMRA award: Clerkenwell was crowned City and East London Pub Of The Year.

2013

In December 2013 our newest pub in the heart of Clapham opened, complete with 100 seater heated beer garden and Forty Burgers in residence.

    • March – Siren Craft Brew launched with us in Clerkenwell. They went on to be hailed as the second best new brewery in the world courtesy of RateBeer.
    • May – The launch of ‘Unhuman Cannonball’. One of the UK’s most innovative breweries, Magic Rock, created an IPA so big that people queued to find it, making the launch an incredible success.
    • July – keg party for Partizan Brewing of Bermondsey.
    • July – Our webstore was launched, from which the very best craft beer can be delivered to your door.
    • July – Another UK first as we invited Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Cervantes from Pizza Port (Carlsbad, California) to Clerkenwell and to celebrate we held an exclusive tap takeover. Nacho brewed with our new friends at Siren to create something special, a huge hop-forward double IPA called ‘The Big Inflatable Cowboy Hat’.
    • November – We unveiled ‘Movo’ – a collaborative effort between Harbour Brewing Co. and ourselves, a beautiful session ale brewed for the prostate cancer charity Movember.
    • November – We held the first ever event in the UK with Belgium’s newest Gueuzerie, Tilquin.
    • We also launched ‘The National Homebrewing Awards’ with a huge £5,000 prize and the honour of brewing with Dark Star Brewing Co.
2014

We announced the winner of ‘The National Homebrewing Awards’. Andy Parker was awarded the £5,000 prize for his ‘American Red’.
