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.

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 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!

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.

Tom Gibbs

Brewery Assistant

Free beer is always a bonus in a job but that’s not the only reason I chose to work within the craft beer industry. I love working and being involved with an Independent company and in an ever growing industry full of likeminded people.  Having been based in Bristol delivering beer to many people, it was time to head back to London and continue this role in addition to assisting the brewing and packaging team to get more product out to more people.

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.

Trudie Kee

Tap Room Manager

My journey with beer started in university when my (now) partner bought me a pint of Guinness “because I’m Irish so I must love it”. I didn’t. But I did drink it purely out of politeness. I started working in pubs not long after and when we eventually moved to London I got my first job working at a brew pub. It wasn’t until we moved to France and I experienced the raw passion that was their fledgling craft beer scene that I decided to stay in the industry. Being able to bring people together has always been one of the main draws of my job and being as close to ‘the source’ as possible can only help facilitate that!

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!).
