A micro-brewery based in SHIPPING CONTAINERS, Dalston, East London

40FT Brewery was founded in May 2015 by four friends including three former home brewers Steve Ryan, Fredrik Pettersson and Andreas Pettersson. Brewing in the kitchen of their shared house in Hackney, it was an opportunity to create a brewery in the disused car park of Andreas and Steve’s studio, that they then approached their friend, German brewmaster, Ben Ott.

The small space available was transformed into a fully functioning brewery, consisting of two twenty-foot shipping containers stacked on top of one other and a third, the taproom, where people can enjoy fresh beer straight from the source.

40FT focuses on traditional styles, done well, and core products boast a diverse range including Pale Ales, Stout, a Wheat Beer and a German-style Kölsch.
