Bristol’s Moor Beer has confirmed its 2,000sqft London premises will allow the business, which celebrated its 10th birthday this year, to expand its reach across the South East.

The facility will run as a pop-up in December through January before a refurbishment starts ahead of an official opening in February 2018.

Justin Hawke, owner and head brewer explained: “Getting the keys to our new London base means we will increase and improve the supply of our products to a really big market, as well as get involved in an area renowned for its brewing culture.

“On Enid Street we are neighbours with some other great breweries, like Brew By Numbers and The Kernel Brewery.

“We are investing heavily in more equipment so we can also use the new space to do more barrel aging of our beers, giving our products the time they deserve for the best result.

“We are excited about how this will support our development and future plans to grow. Having a London presence, as well as in our hometown base in Bristol, is perfect to help us move forward.

“2018 and beyond is a great prospect for extending the quality beers we can offer.”
