The new £30 million Camden Town brewery at Enfield’s Navigation Park marks the biggest investment in London breweries for 30 years.
The 4,645sq m site features an environmentally friendly solar-panelled roof and is expected to produce up to 70,390,160 pints of beer per year.
The arrival of the new brewery has seen staff numbers increase by half and brings job opportunities to the borough, in line with Enfield Council’s growth and sustainability targets.
At the official opening of the brewery on July 29, where a special blend of Enfield Brew was served, cabinet member for economic regeneration and business, Alan Sitkin, said:
"We positively seek close relations with major employers, including ‘foundational’ sectors producing the goods that people always need.
"Food and drink is one sector. From the very first moment Jasper Cuppaidge [founder of Camden Town Brewery] came, we pulled out all the stops to help Camden Town Brewery move here. Enfield Council is delighted to express a heartfelt welcome to our new friends."
The brewery is planning to run weekend tours for the public to showcase its products.
