Thu 17 January 2019, 1:22 pm

Beavertown Brewery - known for its craft ale in colourful cans has been granted planning permission for Beaverworld, a new brewery, offices and visitor centre at Ponders End Industrial Estate, with a provisional opening time of summer 2019.

The development will retain many of the features of the historic Ediswan factory, which produced light bulbs for the Edison and Swan Electric Light Company from the 1880s onwards, Beavertown will aim to retain as much of the original building as possible.

Around 90 people will initially be employed at the site, but it is large enough to accommodate 200 workers if the business expands.

The brewery started life in the cellar of Duke’s Brew and Que in Hackney, before moving to Hackney Wick and then Tottenham Hale. In 2018, it received a £40 million cash injection from Heineken to fund its expansion.
