Wimbledon Brewery to double capacity as it expands for second time in two years

15 May 2017

As the craft beer scene continues to gather pace, another brewer – this time in south west London – has announced it will be doubling its capacity to meet demand.

The facility in question? Wimbledon Brewery has installed two new 60 barrel fermenters in its premises in SW19. This will effectively double its brewing capacity and is the second such expansion in less than two years. Each new fermenter holds the equivalent of 17,000 pints.

Since it started production in July 2015, Wimbledon Brewery has steadily built its range of beers made by master brewer Derek Prentice and his team. Its beers are available in a wide range of pubs, bars, off licences and restaurants across London and in M&S food stores.

'The new fermenters allow us to step up our production to five brews a week, which is needed to meet the increased demand from our growing customer base across the UK,' Mark Gordon, founder of the Wimbledon Brewery, said. 'We will also have some capacity to test the waters internationally before the year is out.'

The Wimbledon Brewery range:

In bottle:

Quartermaine IPA 6.2%

Tower Pale Ale 5%

Gold Lager %

In can:

Bravo American Pale Ale 5.5%

Copper American Red Ale 4.5%
