After great times spent at beer festivals in Manchester and Liverpool, demand from bars and pubs in lots of other cities and an enthusiastic response from Northern visitors to the London brewery, Camden have made a move into the North.
"We’ve been waiting for the right people to help us do it and, in James Clay, we’ve found that partner. They’ve brought so many of our favourite beers to the UK - the ones that inspired us to start a brewery - so we knew we could trust them to take us North."
It wasn’t too long ago that there was no-one making great lagers, wheat beers and American style pale ales in London.
Early 2010, seven old Victorian arches were converted and a beautiful modern brewery was installed. Ideas were turned into recipes, the first beers were brewed. By the summer of 2010, Camden Town Brewery was out there.
To give us Northerners an introduction to these brilliant beers, James Clay are now permanently listing four from Camden Town's portfolio - Camden Hells, Gentleman's Wit, Camden Pale and Camden Ink with specials and limited editions expected to make the journey north in the future.
