About the Brewery
Based in Bermondsey, South East London, Fourpure has been on quite a journey since we first brewed in late 2013. Initially brewing on a manual, gas-powered 36hL brewhouse sourced from Purity Brewery, we spent a number of years tweaking and upgrading this system, with changes including an upgrade to our mash system and converting an old hop-back into a whirlpool helping to separate residual hops and giving us the best possible wort return from our grain.
In November 2017 we installed and commissioned a fully-automated, state of the art GEA Craft-Star brewhouse. The upgrade has been a game changer for the brewery with added efficiency and improved brewing capabilities, it gives us tighter controls, affords us better yields and has lots of fun features that will allow us to better manage wort movement, hop additions and a myriad of technical efficiencies that will refine our beer and change our brewers lives for the better.
We have also increased capacity with the addition of 12 x 200hL fermentation tanks to our existing mix of 24 x 75hL and smaller tanks for exciting one-off beers. Located a short walk from the main brewery but still within the estate we have three more warehouses dedicated to packaging and distribution. Our packaging warehouse houses a further 8 maturation and bright beer tanks between 70hL and 130hL, these are used to store bright beer and feed our Lambrechts kegger, CFT Master Cantronic canning line and GPI end of line case packer. Our distribution team take our beer direct to customers all over greater London and whilst we still find the vast majority of our beer on-trade ends up in the SE1 postcode, you can now find our beers across the UK and abroad.
