Pressure Drop is a small independent brewery, owned and operated by Ben, Graham and Sam. We brew and package all our beer in a railway arch in Hackney Central, London.
Our core range of beers are Pale Fire, Bosko and Wu Gang Chops The Tree. We also produce seasonal and special beers throughout the year. You can find out more about the different beers we brew by exploring the menu above, where they are described in more detail.
In Summer 2012 inspired by the likes of The Kernel, Redemption, Buxton Brewery and Magic Rock we started brewing, on a 50 litre pilot kit, in Graham’s garden shed with the intention of starting our own brewery. At that time we had very little idea of what that would entail so we wanted to start small and build from there. We brewed a lot with mixed results, and through continual trial and occasional error we began to build a solid core of recipes.
As autumn 2012 approached we were still brewing in the shed at the back of a garden and realised that we’d better find somewhere to brew indoors. Luckily we found a small industrial unit in Stoke Newington, just up the road. By January 2013 we had sold our first beer and things started to take on momentum with interest growing locally. We soon needed more space so we moved to Hackney Central in March 2013 and installed our current 5 barrel brewhouse in summer of that year, the same year we were honoured to be named as one of Ratebeer’s 10 Best New Breweries in the World.
We continue to experiment, collaborate and develop new beers.
