The Craft Beer Co has signed a lease on a new site at Hammersmith Station, London, directly opposite the Apollo Theatre.
Founded in 2011 by Martin Hayes and childhood friend Peter Slezak, the Craft Beer Co was the first pub group in London dedicated to craft beer, and led the way in creating a dramatically changed pub landscape in the capital and beyond.
Hayes said: “This is a very exciting new venue for us in a prime location. We are thrilled the landlord approached us to take over this highly desirable site. 2018 was a game changer for us, due to the purchase of our first freeholds, but this starts 2019 with a bang.
“It was groundbreaking for Peter and myself to have kicked off the UK craft beer pub revolution, and it is immensely rewarding to still be going from strength to strength ten years later, without ever taking external investment.”
The venue will be re-opening in March after a major refurbishment, creating a modern pub with old school pub values and real hospitality at its core.
