We are delighted to welcome two London micro-breweries to RAW WINE London this year – Urban Farmhouse Redchurch Brewery & Beavertown Brewery. They are part of our ‘London Drinks‘ collection – featuring drinks that are made in our fine capital. Their beers are a lot less processed than those made by large conventional breweries, their ingredients though (like many of those used in craft brewing) are not organic. For examples of organic, wild ferment beers, check out Siemàn (stand 138) – who co-ferments beer wort & grape must.
Urban Farmhouse – Redchurch Brewery
By James Rylance & Jack Dobbie, 275-276 Poyser Street – E2 9RF – London
Stand number: 1
At Redchurch Brewery the approach is simple : exceptional beers, brewed with respect for process and flavour. Starting with an intial core range we have gone on to develop a wide range of experimental beers called Urban Farmhouse where we push the boundaries of fermentation.
We will be showcasing our Urban Farmhouse range alongside our core range. With Urban Farmhouse we work with organic fruit and herb growers across the south of England, we combine these with our house cultures to create boundary pushing sour beers.
*These beers are not farmed organically. They are unfiltered and no sulphites are added.

BEAVERTOWN: THE OLD COCKNEY NAME GIVEN TO THE HISTORIC DE BEAUVOIR AREA OF LONDON, FAMED IN VICTORIAN TIMES FOR ITS RICH CHARACTERS AND INFINITE REVELRY – THE ORIGINAL STOMPING GROUND OF BEAVERTOWN BREWERY.
We love beer. We believe that great beer is something everyone should get to experience. It brings people together, it gets people talking. Beer is all about relationships. That feeling is the reason we started on this path. In December 2011, Logan Plant set up a brew kit in the kitchen of Duke’s Brew & Que in De Beauvoir, Hackney. The kit, situated opposite the two smokers of the BBQ restaurant, ran at 650 liters per brew.
2 years later we’d moved to Tottenham. Not ones to forget our roots, we brought our original brew kit with us, using it initially to hone the experimental beers, while “Big Beaver,” ploughed through brews of our core range at 5500 liters per brew.
In 2015 we took the opportunity to foray in to the wild, repurposing our original brew kit and investing in wood. The original kit sits at the heart of our Tempus Project, surrounded by barrels of every imaginable style and quietly standing as the perfect juxtaposition to the hustle of the main brew house, producing beers that take their own sweet time, to be enjoyed whenever they are ready.
Our mission has always been to produce beers of the highest caliber, driven by our passion for innovation and uncompromising quality. We’ve always aimed to satisfy and stimulate the drinker from the very first sip. Our Core range exemplifies our commitment to consistency, keeping it simple with big punchy hops balanced against a considered grain bill, each beer having its own unique profile. Our Tempus Project is a more untamed beast, moving beyond the realms of t water, barley, hops and yeast into a land of microbes, wild bacteria and wood. Each of these beers with their own little, intrepid journey from brew to bottle. These stories and flavor concepts are reflected in the artwork we wrap our beers in. Whether in can or bottle we want our drinkers to enjoy every aspect of the Beavertown experience and the artwork and designs are an integral part of that.
We are Beavertown, beer is what we make, and love, and we want to share it with you.
*These beers are not organic. They have not been fined or filtered and no sulphites have been added. “We have a centrifuge which we use lightly to avoid filtration”.
