Brewers delight in Enfield

A popular craft beer company is to open a brewery in Enfield.

Camden Town Brewery is the first customer to sign up for phase two of Navigation Park, a development being carried out by real estate investment trust Segro. It will provide 13,000sq m of warehouse space on the A1055 (Mollison Avenue). 

It will allow Camden Town Brewery, which in 2015 partnered with brewing company AB inBev, to increase the production and variety of its beers, which include Hells Lager, Pale Ale, Ink, Gentleman’s Wit and Pils, as well as a range of new beers to be released throughout the year. 

The 5,330sq m brewery, located at unit one in the park, will be a carbon neutral building, producing more energy than it uses.

Alan Holland, Segro’s business unit director for Greater London, said that Navigation Park’s direct access to the North Circular made it an “ideal location” for Camden Town Brewery to distribute its goods.

The new facility is expected to open in November 2016 and will employ up to 70 people.

Founder of Camden Town Brewery Jasper Cuppaidge said that the firm had a great opportunity to become a “world famous” brewery. 

"Enfield will not only keep all our brewing close to home in North London, but also enable us to make more great beers to satisfy the thirst of beer lovers out there, and maintain our commitment to full flavoured and distinct beers," he added.

Camden Town Brewery will continue to operate from its original base on Wilkin Street Mews in Camden Town.

Councillor Alan Sitkin, Enfield Council’s cabinet member for economic regeneration and business development, said the council was “absolutely committed to encouraging businesses of all sizes to relocate here”.

"It is brilliant news to hear that a company such as Camden Town Brewery is locating a major supply hub in Enfield as the area is well served for both rail and road links. I look forward to working with them to secure even more jobs for local people.”
