TO EXPERIMENT. TO EXPERIENCE. TO ADVENTURE.

We’re so excited to announce the building of our mobile coolship, the UK's first. With it we will travel the country capturing wild yeast and bacteria that naturally occur all around us - making extraordinary beers from it. Every beer will be a living record of where we visit, the lessons we learn, and the friends we make along the way.

THE LONDON BEER FACTORY. WHO WE ARE.

We've been brewing in South London for the last 4 years. Modern, independent, craft beer is what we have been about since day one. Producing a core range which is nationally available whilst experimenting with specials and barrel aging. We already have the venue, the barrels, and the expertise. All we need is the final push to get us out there making awesome wild, spontaneously fermented beer!

WHAT IS A COOLSHIP?

Coolships are a traditional, flat, open topped cooling vessel used by the Belgian brewers of yesteryear. It's designed to cool down wort (unfermented beer) whilst also capturing micro-organisms like yeast in the air. Essentially coolships allow for the wild, spontaneous, fermentation of beer. Our mobile coolship will mean we can take this process anywhere. The beaches of Cornwall, the centre of Glasgow, the top of Snowden, or even your back garden.

THE BARREL AGING. THE BEER.

This natural beer will then be conditioned, undergoing a slow fermentation at our blendery/conditioning space and taproom - The Barrel Project. Here it will be transferred to French oak wine barrels where it will live for up to three years, undergoing a slow fermentation before being blended and bottled. All this allows the yeast time to work its magic, chewing through complex sugars and creating a completely unique and exceptional beer.

YOUR IMPACT. YOUR BEER.

Your pledge will get the steel hammered, the barrels fitted, and the wheels rolling. You will literally be building this awesome, one-of-a-kind machine. And when it's done expect the barrels to be rolling as we bring the funk up and down Britain! We want to make unique, inspiring beers across the UK and get it out to you, the beer lovers of Britain. By crowdfunding we take one step closer to engaging with the people who support us, now and in the future. Giving back and making stories.
