History of Hop Stuff Brewery
Founder and Brewer James Yeomans is an Ex-city boy, having spent the early years of his London life slaving away in the depths of London's financial centre until he saw the light.
Taking over 7 Gunnery Terrace in Sept '13, brewing was underway by Oct & the first beer was sold at the Dial Arch Pub, Woolwich on the 8th Nov 2013.
Since opening, Hop Stuff is now 200% up on original capacity, adding 2 new 10bbl conical fermentation vessels, as well as a new 20bbl tank used for double brews.
Demand for Hop Stuff Beers has at times outstripped capacity, we're working hard to keep up, whilst also adding new styles, ranges and most importantly loads more beer!
The Royal Arsenal is steeped in Military History, having been an ordnance storage depot, munitions works, and home of the Royal Regiment of Artillery, not to mention the birthplace and spiritual home of a little north London football club. Since the Military moved out, the Royal Arsenal has been redeveloped and is now writing a new chapter in its History, with a brewery at the centre!
