We’ll miss you 2018, you’ve been good to us!

We’d like to say a massive THANK YOU from all of us here at Hammerton. You have all played a major part in 2018 being an incredible year for us.

It’s been an eventful one, and we thought it would be healthy for our souls to recap over all of the awesome stuff that’s happened in the past year…


Since its release at Craft Beer Rising in March, the success of CRUNCH has blown us away; You guys just can’t get enough of it!
The Peanut Butter Milk Stout also ran rampant at the SIBA awards picking up three golds.
In August we successfully crowdfunded for our brand new Brewery Taproom raising £49,128, smashing our original target of £35,000! This funding has also helped us purchase 19 new barrels for ageing!
This year has been a fruitful one for awards too! Pentonville picked up CAMRA’s ‘Best Stout in London 2018‘, N7 won silver at SIBA, and CRUNCH cleaned up with three SIBA golds including OVERALL best in the bottle/can category.
In October we reached 600 brews. That’s 2.3M pints! We also celebrated our 4th Birthday in particularly wet fashion when every member of the Hammerton team had to face the dunk tank at the Brewery’s Birthday Bash!
We eventually received the keys to our new unit in August, which is conveniently right opposite the Brew House! It’s now a fully functioning warehouse and will soon be home to our new offices! The previous warehouse is now the Taproom.
Alongside our core range of N1, N7, Islington and Pentonville, we released 14 small batch brews in 2018. In particular, the Vermont Chapters which include brews such as: Waimea River, Fluess Juice, Catamount and Rubus Rain.

BRING ON 2019!

There’s loads more where that came from in 2019. We’ll be pressing on with our barrel-aging project, with the first brew, Black Humour, to be released in in the coming weeks!

Subject to planning approval, we’ll be opening our brand spanking new Taproom on a permanent basis! We turn five years old in 2019, so expect a BIG birthday bash for that one.

We’ll have the massive addition to the Brew House of three brand new 60 hectolitre fermentation vessels, almost doubling our brew capacity! Which in turn, means that we’ll be popping out more special brews than ever before! YAY.

We’ll see you all next year,

The Hammerton Team

Dates confirmed for November’s Taproom

We’ll once again be opening our doors for the usual end of the month shindig at the brewery!

We may still be waiting on planning permission to open up weekly as originally planned, but we plan to make up for all those days lost with some awesome beer, delicious food and fun times. We’re also delighted to say that CRUNCH, our famous Peanut Butter Milk Stout will be available in keg & can!

The food vendor this month will be provided by the amazing and yummy smoked meat specialists, pOrX.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Taproom on Friday 30th November and Saturday 1st December.

P.s. We’re dog and child friendly too! (until 8pm for the latter)

MANGO MASHER – Launch parties


In baseball, the term ‘Masher’ is used to describe a player who consistently hits home runs. Well, we think we’ve knocked it outta the park with this Mango Milkshake IPA.

With 60 kilos of fresh mango, an abundance of oats and wheat, and dry-hop additions that portray stone fruit characteristics result in a beautifully juicy IPA!


We will be launching the Masher at three various sites around London on separate dates:

House Of Hammerton – Thursday 1st Nov 16:00-23:00 – Our spiritual home. It wouldn’t make sense to kick it off at any other place than our very own pub.

Small Beer Crouch End – Friday 2nd Nov 17:00-23:00 – We love these guys, and when we were deciding which other site in North London to host our launch, they were top of the list. There’s always great beer on offer and a lovely, friendly team.

Hop Burns & Black – Saturday 3rd Nov 15:00-21:00 – These guys are really, really good at hoarding (and occasionally selling…) really cool stuff. If over 350 different beers wasn’t enough, they also some awesome vintage vinyl and London’s best selection of hot sauces! Yes, the name starts to make sense now doesn’t it!? Can’t wait to spend a Saturday chilling with these guys in Peckham.

See the Facebook event here.
