About Us

Brick Brewery started life in the shed of founder, Ian Stewart’s garden in Peckham, South East London.  Eventually growing to a production brewery under Peckham Rye station in 2013 where our Taproom continues our legacy. We are a family owned, award winning, independent brewery based in SE London and are passionate about producing consistent and great quality beer to challenge the perception of the beer enthusiast and everyday beer drinker. Brick’s beers are inspired by the many travels of the ever-growing team and the creative and cultural surroundings of South East London.

Our Team

Ian Stewart, Brick Brewery's Owner and Managing Director

Ian Stewart

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.

Jake Boyd

Sales Manager

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”.

Freddie Rouse

Sales Manager

My love of craft beer began in my 2nd year of Uni, when I was looking for something different to quench my weekly thirst. Being bored of each of the corner shop beers, I found myself introduced to a Craft beer bar and my interest grew, befriending the staff and learning about the processes used in each of the beers. I’m thrilled to be part of the Brick team as I’ve always wanted to work for an independent, fast paced company, that shares the same ideals as me and here I feel that I’ve found it.

Pete Vick

Head Brewer

I got into brewing for the short and flexible working hours! I am back at Brick after working in breweries in Croatia, Greenland and Catalonia and have got stuck into creating some amazing new beers and improving our Foundation range recipes. This career has allowed me to travel as beer is a global “language” and as with Brick’s ethos, I really enjoy producing beers inspired by my travels. South East London is home, who wouldn’t love being able to buy 8 avocados for £1!

Tom Dixon

Lead Brewer

Tom’s moved from Edinburgh to join us and brought with him a love of heavily hopped beers and barrel aged farmhouse ales.  He’s just come back from travelling around India and Sri Lanka and he’s hoping to implement some of the amazing flavours and ingredients from that area of the world into some future tasty brews.

Rob Appleton

Assistant Brewer

After working in offices which I found truly boring, I started brewing 2 years ago.  I’ve always enjoyed doing stuff with my hands so kept busy fixing other people’s guitars at university and I enjoy the practical and scientific side of brewing, particularly working in the lab.

Sam Blain

Assistant Brewer

Coming from a really traditional brewery back in York gave me a good base for brewing.  But I wanted a different aspect on craft brewing and with the expansion at Brick this was the ideal place to come.  I also couldn’t let Ian be the lone Northerner and so had to increase our numbers!

Jackson Greaves

Brewer/Packaging

Having worked at 2 other brewery’s I am relishing leading our packaging side of things and getting to grips with our new canning line. I was a big home brewer and am now enjoying packaging beer rather than making a massive mess in my kitchen!

Tom Cram

Warehouse and Delivery

Brick is my third London brewery and I love being back in South East London with the opportunity to work with previous colleagues. I am a logistical master..any opportunity to use the forklift..love that machine.

Sally Stewart, Brick Brewery's Brand Director

Sally Stewart

Brand Director

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 Peckham IPA 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.

Nadia Jackson

Marketing & Events Officer

Another northerner to the team and a self-confessed foodie obsessive, working in a brewery allows me to talk about food and drink all day with other like-minded people! Being introduced to craft beer 3 years ago working in a brewery tap was a real turning point for me and jumped straight back in after finishing university. I love the energy and no-boundaries attitude in this industry and seeing how far we can push flavours and ideas.

Oscar Floris

Office Admin/Credit Control

Obsessed with all things beer for years, I’ve recently joined Brick after a career in consumer credit. I felt the need to work in an industry I genuinely care about – plus, being a homebrewer, it’s very interesting to see what I do at home but on a much bigger scale. I also love the fact that I’m working for a local, independent brewery that I’ve followed since it’s first day and contributing to it’s success as well as the future of craft beer…When I’m not drinking beer or making it, I can be found playing my Portuguese Ukulele (the Father of the Ukuleles!).
