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…
The Peanut Butter Milk Stout also ran rampant at the SIBA awards picking up three golds.
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
