We've always said, ONE DAY, we will build a brewery in London. One that will innovate in the UK craft beer scene today, so we can re-imagine a more diverse and exciting craft beer community tomorrow. And now, that ONE DAY has come.
Since Eko Brewery was established 5 years ago, we have stayed true to our core values. By bringing together what we love about craft beer, infusing that with our knowledge of African brewing techniques and ingredients and putting the local community at our heart – we’ve created something really special. We have perfected innovative beers packed with flavour that we love and believe in – and we have put our money where our mouth is by self-funding Eko Brewery so far.
It’s been an amazing journey. Over the past 5 years, we have brewed over 10 beers, had our beer stocked in multiple award winning restaurants and bars, as well as our collaboration box in Tesco, and recently we opened our first taproom in the beating heart of Peckham – where co-founder Anthony grew up. In 2024, we’re ready to take things to the next level – that ONE DAY has now arrived.
In our taproom site, we’re going to build the only brewery with brewing operations in Peckham – but we need your help! We need to raise enough funds to buy the kit to start brewing and canning beer – and turbo-charge our mission of creating a more diverse and exciting craft beer scene, focused on centering the local community. Are you in, Eko Gang?
With your pledge, not only will you be building Peckham’s only brewery and joining the Eko Founders Family, an amazing community of craft beer fans, – but you’ll also unlock rewards. From your very own Founders Family discount card, to exclusive collaboration merch, designed by London-based renowned artist Caroline Chinakwe, these rewards are limited – so don’t miss out.
So we’re asking again, Eko Gang. Are you in?
For those who have followed us since we started, we welcome you on the start of this new chapter with us.
For those new to Eko Brewery, welcome and we look forward to you joining us on our journey to build the only brewery in Peckham with brewing operations.
Proposed Brewery Floor Plan
TODAY, we are asking for your support to help bring our brewery vision in Peckham to life.
Get your pledge back in beer and More! With your support for this campaign, you will join the Eko Brewery Founders Family and be the first to own the new range of merch. This also includes our one off limited edition collaboration merch with renowned artist, Caroline Chinakwe, whose artwork is showcased in our tap room at present.
Your contribution will help cement long lasting diversity the craft beer scene desperately needs. Thank you in advance for your support and belief in our project.
Founded by Anthony and Helena in 2018, Eko Brewery aims to produce unique tasting beers. During a 12 months secondment to America in 2013, Anthony and Helena were inspired by the micro brewery scene in the US and set out to create their own unique beer. Their research led them to discover traditional African brewing techniques and recipes. The result is a selection of enjoyable and authentic craft beers.
It’s time for our unique take on beers to be shared far and wide!
Our taproom in Copeland Park, Peckham has in its short existence already been described as a game changer by many, including award winning beer writer, Will Hawkes. The brewery will be an extension of what we have already started to cultivate in the space. As you step through the doors you’ll be able to soak in elements of Afro Jazz and soulful chill out music. The aromas of the food inspired by our heritage will fill the space. The extensive range of drinks will be available for your palates to enjoy. The brewery has a large glass front which allows natural light to flood into the space. Seating will be strategically positioned so the brewery space can be viewed by everyone enjoying the taproom.
We're also keen to work with the community having already participated in the local school fair to raise money for the school. We've also worked with local Peckham sign artist, Trin Brierley of Trin Paints Signs, to bring our logo to life in the space, and we aim to participate in mentorship and training programmes by working with the local community.
The space will be a safe space where everyone from babies to pets are welcome. We plan to host events that will further extend and embrace the inclusion and diversity of our vision for the space.
