About Us

Craft beer for everyone!

Hop Stuff Brewery was born out of a drive to make craft beer more approachable. Since opening in 2013, the Brewery has had three successful rounds of crowd funding, gained over 1,300 beer-loving investors, opened three Taproom bars and continues the pursuit to make craft beer simple and fun.

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 on board. At the start of 2018 we went round III with crowd funding and now have over 1,300 beer lovers boosting this company. Since then we've upgraded to a bigger state-of-the-art facility, employed over 30 team members and are capable of producing 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 focus on brewing beer we love and delivering it in a way that makes everyone feel welcome; whether they are craft enthusiasts or those just venturing into the world beyond the green bottle lagers. 

In summary, the next few years for Hop Stuff Brewery means:

1. More neighbourhood Taprooms 

2. More team members

3. Export our beer overseas

4. Invite more people 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.
