About The Beerblefish Brewing Company

We launched our first beer in the autumn of 2015. We started off brewing in a  shared co-operative brewery in Bermondsey, and moved to our own premises in Edmonton, North London in late summer 2016.
Beerblefish Brewing is committed to keeping its beers vegan. It is not necessary to include isinglass or other animal products in our beers - these additives do not add anything to the taste of the beer and simply stop some people from being able to enjoy it.

We are also conscious of the impact of brewing on our environment and we are always looking for ways to reuse our by-products, including our spent grain and our used hops. We're always open to new ideas so please get in touch with any

As a social enterprise, we have 4 aims:
  - Provide training and mentoring to ex-forces personnel to re-skill and re-enter the workforce after military service;
  - Provide material and financial support to computing oriented youth training schemes;
  - Pay all members of staff at least the living wage;
  - Brew fantastic beer and have fun doing it!


The Short History of The Beerblefish Brewing Co.


After many years brewing in kitchens and basements all across the UK, positive feedback led to the decision to ramp it up and start brewing professionally.  We founded The Beerblefish Brewing Company Limited in August 2015. 
We spent the rest of the year further developing our recipes and finally went beyond the R&D phase into the commercial world of brewing in the autumn. Our first batch was kegged on the 24th October, and we enjoyed seeing our roundel on the tap in our local pub.


This year is proving to be a momentous one for Beerblefish!  After many months of searching, we found our own home in Edmonton, North London and moved in on 25 April.  Earlier in the year, we also found our own 5BBL brewing kit, which is currently being stored for us in a barn in Suffolk.  

Our new premises are essentially just an industrial box which took some time to convert so that it was fit for purpose.  A floor with proper drainage was laid, we built an internal room to keep our fermenters cool and we made a long list of other changes. 

Whilst our own brewery was coming together, we continued cuckoo-brewing (brewing on someone else equipment) small batches in Bermondsey.  This allowed us to supply a variety of pubs, bars and corporate customers with casks, key-kegs, and bottles.  After much experimentation, we settled on a few staples for our range and brewed several different versions of them to get everything perfect for when we start in the new place!

Having completed the works, we were able to ship and install the kit.


The year started with us brewing 100% at our base in Edmonton, North London.  Whilst we have the big kit installed, our pilot plant enabled us to experiment with one-off brews and festival specials - our Imperial Mild was the fastest selling beer at the Bexley Beer Festival!  The brew kit continues to be added to and updated - which is, of course, a never-ending process! 

We have done a couple of festivals so far with more to come.  Thanks to CAMRA, our beer was on sale in and around the Peak District.


Very exciting year, the year everything changed!

The year we moved from being just anoter brewery to one helping to make the world a better place through the power of beer and brewing. We took on a social focus supporting Veterans and Children's Charities.

The team expanded with Glenn joining us to head up sales and spread the word; that word being BEERBLEFISH, and Andy joined us from the Royal Artillery to build out the brewing team. Both are great guys and we are really glad to have them on the team.

Our beer line up changed, we decided to refocus our beer line up around 3 heritage styles, inspired by  1800's beer recipes. At a time when everyone else is pushing in more hops and crazy ingredients, we decided to focus on the little folks that make this all possible, the hardest workers in any brewery the yeast. We ended up releasing 3 complex beers our 1820 Porter, 1853 ESB and 1892 IPA.These are balanced and easy to drink now or can be laid down like a wine and aged for a couple of years to allow the Brett to evolve the flavours.

We rebaranded with new beer labels and pumpclips based on a funky abstract fish based logo, which we developed with Jake and Matty at Thunderclap Creative, Thanks Guys we love the rebrand!

In October we recieved great news we had won a number of awards in the Global Drinks Beer Awards 3 Silvers and 2 Bronze, having 1 month earlier won a Gold in the Stout and Porter category at the Kentish Belle.


More festivals, more brews, more fun!
