'Craft beer ought to be for everyone’
This idea spurred James to start Hop Stuff Brewery in 2013. He ditched the white-collar life to make craft beer to share with anyone - whether a green bottle beer drinker, a craft aficionado or his sweet old grandma.
Hop Stuff has since grown to a tight knit team of beer maniacs backed by over 600 investors.
We’re all about crafting tasty beers that bring the crew together – so our range covers all palates; from sessionable to sippable – keg, can and cask.
We proudly produce craft beer for everyone to enjoy.
Our fastest seasonal beer to sell out (just three weeks) - The Freudian Strip went crazy.
On the 28th of June we released Freudian Strip Vienna Lager, our first collaboration with Eddie and James from Quite Good Cards. We made the beer, they made the artwork. For us it's about working with fun independents to make cool shit. More here.

A note from the founder, James Yeomans:
In 2013, in a desperate attempt to find great beer in the City of London (where I was then working) we ventured into the craft bars of London, but my mates quickly felt awkward and ostracised in their suits and lack of cracking facial hair. An idea emerged: why not start a brewery that celebrated and welcomed everyone to choose a better quality beer?
Hop Stuff Brewery was conceived.
With the support of 72 Investors, we opened Hop Stuff Brewery in a modest unit on Woolwich's Royal Arsenal. On a shoestring budget, with grit and determination, the company started to grow. In August 2014 we hired our first employee and the journey accelerated.
We invited more investment in 2016 to fund a new brew house, boost the brewing team, recruit a sales and marketing team, and open new sites for The Taproom brand across London and the South East. The crowd funding campaign was a huge success with £1,500,000 invested and over 600 investors now on board. We'll soon be upgrading to a bigger facility, employ over 30 team members and produce a capacity to satisfy the increasing demand for our beer.
The brewery started to bring craft beer to everyone. This idea remains at the core of what we do today. We try to avoid egotism and snobbery, but focus on just brewing damn tasty beer to make accessible to beer lovers; whether existing craft enthusiasts or those just venturing into the world beyond the green bottle.
In summary, 2017 is looking huge for Hop Stuff Brewery:
1. New Brewhouse
2. New Taproom(s)
3. More team members
4. Export our beer overseas
5. Invite more people than ever into craft
So, with all this in mind - we're your brewery. We brew our beer to breed community; a community of social beer lovers, Investors, and Hop Stuff Brewery ambassadors.
