Mon 3rd Jul 2017 - Carlsberg UK acquires London Fields Brewery
Carlsberg UK acquires London Fields Brewery: Carlsberg UK has acquired London Fields Brewery and will operate the business as a joint venture with Brooklyn Brewery from Brooklyn, New York. London Fields Brewery will operate as an independent business within the joint venture between Carlsberg and Brooklyn Brewery. Its craft beer range will become part of the Danish brewer’s core portfolio in the UK and will also form part of its House of Beers range, which caters for premium venues across London and other major cities, and which already includes the Brooklyn Brewery craft beer portfolio. London Fields Brewery, which was founded in 2011 in the London Fields neighbourhood of Hackney, east London, came to prominence through its range of craft beers, including Craft Lager, Easy IPA and Shoreditch Triangle IPA. Carlsberg UK chief executive Julian Momen said: “We’re thrilled to add London Fields Brewery to our growing portfolio of great-quality craft and specialty beers. Our customers, and specifically those in London and other major cities, are looking to us to offer them the best possible range of interesting craft beers – and we think that, with nurturing, London Fields Brewery has huge potential. It’s the right move for us as we build a credible craft portfolio.” Currently, London Fields Brewery beers are brewed outside of Hackney by a brewing partner. Investment will be made to reintroduce brewing at its original home under the railway arches in Hackney, and to upgrade its taproom and events space. As part of the joint venture, Brooklyn Brewery will work together with the London Fields Brewery’s team to continue developing “innovative, tasty and well-balanced beers”. Brooklyn Brewery chief executive Eric Ottaway said: “We’re excited to be able to work closely with this great London-based craft brewery. The range of beers, its eye-catching artwork and the great location of the brewery in Hackney makes for a fantastic platform. London Fields Brewery is surrounded by a thriving creative community that reminds us of home, and we’re looking forward to becoming part of it.” Julian De Vere Whiteway-Wilkinson helped establish London Fields Brewery in Hackney in 2011. Momen added: “We thank Julian for his work in establishing London Fields Brewery and the creation of this exciting brand, and we wish him well in the future. Looking ahead, we’re thrilled and energised to be working with Brooklyn Brewery to create something very special in Hackney in the years to come.”
