40ft brewery is a micro brewery built out of second hand shipping containers in a repurposed car park in Dalston, Hackney. We opened in 2015 with just two 20 foot shipping containers, one served as a brew house and the other as maturation room. We have grown organically since then adding shipping containers like large heavy legos pieces each time. We are now 150ft with more space for brewing and a dedicated taproom.
We are a neighbourhood brewery sending out fresh beer each week to the bars, restaurants and pubs that we serve in our community. Our space is limited so our focus is on quality and fresh, delicious beer.
The brewery was founded by four friends; three homebrewers Andreas Pettersson, Fredrick Pettersson and Steve Ryan and braumaster Ben Ott. We are still independently owned and currently employ two full time brewers and two more people in part time roles.
