About Us

We build beer. Fact. Starting from our humble roots in a Peckham shed, since 2013 we have been building our brewery in a railway arch in Peckham Rye, SE London. Every recipe is built from scratch, our Tapyard was built by our fair hands (with a little bit of help from our mate Matt), hell we even built our own urinals! Inspired by our travels, the beers we build are varied and showcase the diversity of beers from around the world.

Managing Director & Owner

Pushed by my wife to brew in the shed at the bottom of the garden, I brewed beer at home for more than six years before starting Brick. I find it amazing that every beer is made from 4 basic ingredients, it just depends on how you put them all together that makes it unique. I’ve seen many changes in the beer business since starting and love the way beer transcends demographics, lifestyles and culture.

Working in a pub in Crystal Palace after finishing at University, I discovered there was more to beer than just Macro lager. I then made it my mission to try as many different beer styles, from as many different breweries from across the world, that I could. I realised that, for me, the more hops, the better! Working for my second South East London brewery in Brick, I love meeting people, new and old, and introducing them to the wonderful world of beer.

I was always a Guinness drinker as a youngster. However after leaving the UK in 2013 to travel, the following 4 years allowed me to work in places and experience a range of brews that I couldn’t have imagined whilst sat in my old local!  My love for craft was iron-clad during my time in Wellington, NZ – leading to a slight bias for those Kiwi hops! That said, my love for stouts remains strong, especially now that I’m back in the land of the “two weeks a year summer”.

Lead Brewer

My decision to become a brewer was made before I was even allowed to drink beer and lead me to move from Greece to Germany to learn the craft. After the first year of my apprenticeship I visited my first craft beer festival in Cologne. From that day on, I knew that craft beer is what I wanted to brew.

Embrace the hops! Or just put them into the beer – lots of them. Except for Sorachi Ace. Everything changed for me in the same week, when I tasted The Kernel and Punk IPA. I didn’t know beer could be like this, so I started drinking more of it, then home brewing it, then commercially for Brick. I still love drinking it and brewing it. Just not at the same time.

Beer is one of the most exciting products out there. The sheer variety of colours, flavours and aromas outdoes any other drink. I decided to enter the industry when one day, after a long rehearsal with my band, I sat down to enjoy a pint of an unsuspecting looking white IPA. It blew my mind and sent me hurtling into the world of beer. The ingredients, the history, the traditions, the variety, the people, all makes for one hell of an exciting industry to work in!

Having worked with brands for over 22 years, Brick is the result of a long and passionate journey for our family. I was a lager drinker, I admit it and so the Peckham Pils was initially created with me in mind, however you will also find me tucking into a pint of Peckham Pale and Pioneer when I get a chance. As a family business, I guess it’s lucky we both like beer – our kids can pour a mean pint too.
