London Fields Brewery acquired by Carlsberg

Carlsberg UK has acquired the London Fields Brewery and will operate the business in a joint venture with Brooklyn Brewery.

London Fields Brewery, which was founded in Hackney in 2011, offers a range of craft beers including Craft Lager, Easy IPA and Shoreditch Triangle IPA.

The Brewery will operate as an independent business within the joint venture, and its craft beer range will become part of the Danish brewer's core portfolio in the UK. It will also form part of its House of Beers range, which caters for premium venues across London and other major cities.

Currently London Fields Brewery beers are brewed outside of Hackney. Investment will be made to re-introduce brewing at its original home under the Hackney railway arches and to upgrade its taproom and events space. Brooklyn Brewery will also work with the London Fields Brewery's team to develop new beers.

Eric Ottaway, chief executive of Brooklyn Brewery, added: "We're excited to be able to work closely with this great London-based craft brewery. The range of beers, their eye-catching artwork and the great location of the brewery in Hackney makes for a fantastic platform."
