BROUGHT TO LIFE BY THE INTREPID WINDRUSH GENERATION, BIRTHPLACE OF LEGENDARY DAVID BOWIE, BELOVED FOR ITS VIBRANT MARKETS AND FREEWHEELING NIGHTLIFE, THIS IS BRIXTON IN ALL ITS GLORY.

Our story…

Started in a railway arch in 2013, Brixton Brewery was the dream of two couples who wanted to put Brixton on the map for great beer. They had met by chance in a local bar and bonded over their shared passion for beer and for the non-stop energy of the South London neighbourhood they all called home.

They agreed that every great neighbourhood deserves a great brewery; and so Brixton Brewery was born.

We infuse the flavour of Brixton into everything that we do. Our beers are named after Brixton landmarks, inspired by the flavours of its markets, and packaged in colourful cans that reference the exuberant batik fabrics sold there.

Our beer

Our beer is hand-crafted in small batches and is always unpasteurised and unfiltered for maximum flavour. We like to add a modern twist to traditional brewing styles, using the best ingredients that we can get our hands on, whether sourced from our local markets, or much further afield. The resulting beers are bold, modern, and always perfectly balanced for easy-drinking.

Our ethos

We’re a family-run business rooted in our diverse and vibrant community and there’s nothing we love more than bringing people together through a shared love of beer. We work hard to brew beers that make our local community proud and help thirsty people everywhere get a taste of Brixton.

Our Beers

All our beers are unfiltered, unpasteurised, vegan-friendly and full of flavour.

Our next chapter

Our next chapter

When we look back over the past seven years, we honestly can’t believe how far we’ve come – from homebrewing to launching a small brewery, to building a highly recognisable community-based brand, with a larger new brewery and taproom. It makes us want to dream even bigger for the next seven. To realise our original…

Brixton’s hip hop chip shop

Brixton’s hip hop chip shop

Chip Shop is based at 378 Coldharbour Lane, right at the point where the street crosses over Brixton’s bustling Atlantic Road. Its walls are spray-painted with the larger-than-life faces of some of hip hop’s biggest names: 2Pac, Biggie Smalls, Eazy-E and more. Why? Brainchild of MICHAEL LYTHGOE and partner CIDALIA RODRIGUEZ, the unconventional restaurant brings together their two great loves- fish and chips, and hip hop. A curious combination, that absolutely works.

Walton Lodge is a beautiful red-brick Edwardian building which was built in 1904 to house a then-thriving family-run laundry business. After almost 120 years the laundry finally closed, but the building itself still stands proud at 374 Coldharbour Lane- only now it houses an all day bistro and wine shop run by New Zealand-born MELANIE BROWN. We went to visit Mel at The Laundry to talk about her time in Brixton so far, and what she’s doing to try and preserve the legacy of this amazing building.

AMA QUASHIE is one of the fashion industry’s most prominent nail artists. Rarely does a week go by when she’s not visiting somewhere far flung to paint nails for a high end photoshoot or runway show. Yet when deciding where to open their nail salon, Ama and fellow entrepreneur LATOYA LOVATT both agreed that it had to be Brixton. Not long later, they opened AMA Salon, specialising in natural nails, at 340 Coldharbour Lane.
