 New stretch target

What will we do with our stretch goals? Scale scale scale!

More kit!

  • to allow more people to brew simultaneously.

A canning line!

  • Put your beer into cans, labelled with your own design? Absolutely!

More brewmasters!

  • to help you with your project. Recipe creation? You got it!

Bigger kit!

  • so you can brew larger quantities at once. 600 bottles in one go? Brew it!

More bulk buying! 

  • so we can pass on even bigger savings to you! 

What are we doing?

We are bringing the art of brewing beer to the people. Want to brew your own beer? From scratch? With industry quality kit, ingredients and guidance? Read on.

Mash Paddle Brewery will offer a ‘Brewery-as-a-Service’ model to London’s enthusiastic homebrewers, and to energetic entrepreneurs who are keen to take their brewing to the next level and find a commercial home for their enterprise.

As London’s only incubator for startup brewers we take care of the equipment, marketing and packaging logistics associated with brewing, allowing our members to concentrate on what matters - brewing great beer.

Sounds great - how?

We will do this by providing access to commercial-grade equipment and bulk-purchased, brewery-quality ingredients in a brewing focused maker-space, using a monthly membership model.

By taking insights from the co-working and maker-space movements we will provide the facilities, equipment and guidance needed to allow homebrewers to focus on their product – and not the logistics surrounding it.


Our Brewery-as-a-Service model allows members to benefit from top grade, commercial quality equipment and trade scale buying power, giving homebrewers the benefits of access to incredible kit and fantastically priced ingredients without the expense and space requirements associated with ownership.

Our innovative incubator programme enables aspiring businesses to brew at commercial volumes without having to secure commercial premises - with packaging, distribution and tax advice integrated into the programme. This provides the next generation of London-born enterprises with the space to grow, collaborate, take risks & learn from each other as they prepare to launch their product into the community - and beyond.

A social space and bar provides a focal point for the local community to meet, swap recipes and trade advice - all while enjoying beer brewed on-site.


Where next?

We want to train the next generation of brewers, offering apprenticeships and vocational programmes for school leavers, for ex-offenders, the long-term unemployed and other often overlooked groups.

But we need your help to do it. We are raising funds to rent an arch in Bermondsey (We think! See the note at the bottom!). Fill it with top of the range brewing kit. Buy a TONNE of hops (or at least, a bunch of hops). And invite you in to turn it all into amazing beer.


Be part of the craft beer revolution at Mash Paddle Brewery.

Location! We have located a site in Bermondsey which we are currently agreeing terms on. If this doesn't work out though, and we do not end up in Bermondsey, and the new location doesn't suit you then we will refund your pledge.
