Heineken has taken a minority stake in British craft brand Brixton Brewery to help it expand capacity and move to a new site.
In a statement on its website, Brixton Brewery said the deal marks an ‘exciting partnership’, which will enable it to build a new brewery in south London.
Four years on from launching, the brand has around 15 employees and its beers have gone on sale in Italy and Hong Kong. However, it said it now cannot keep up with demand.
It has found a new unit 600 metres from its current brewery which will allow it to take its capacity from 12,000 pints a week to 60,000 and ‘enable greater control over the process’. The expanded site will see the brand develop new beers and innovate through its Ltd Edn range.
