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.

Tom Dixon

Head Brewer

Tom moved from Edinburgh to join us and brought with him a love of heavily hopped beers and barrel aged farmhouse ales. Now taking on the role of Head Brewer, Tom is leading the team with some exciting and new beers already planned for 2020, watch this space!

Tania Poblete

Brewer

Working in the wine industry years ago, moving into beer was a much-needed antidote to the red trousers, red teeth and swilling! After some home brewing, and many beer-fuelled, bolshy conversations in the corner of my local, I decided to take the leap to get into brewing professionally and 4 years later here I am! As a Londoner, I am lucky to have such a thriving scene on my doorstep and I am especially looking forward to delving further into the tangy world of sours with Brick.

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!

Stu Chittenden

Sales Director

Relocating from Sydney to London gave me a fresh chance to follow my passion into craft beer and all its positives- the people, products and rate of change. No two days are the same and a million miles away from working in advertising in Sydney. Hand me a big imperial stout in the winter and a well-brewed lager in the summer and I’m a happy man. When I’m not crunching spreadsheet numbers, I’m into trail and ultra-running; I ran a 100mk/60 mile race last year in the UK and am hoping to complete the Tenerife Bluetrail, a 100km trail run over Mount Tiede, in the summer.

Fred 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.

Michael Sheppard

Sales Manager

After discovering beer whilst living in Melbourne, Australia through breweries such as Fat Yak, White Rabbit, Moondog and Little Creatures I started working at a craft beer bar in Shoreditch upon my return to London, then eventually beer sales for Brick. I love pubs, the culture and history that surrounds them, and nothing beats a long weekend walk followed by a pint. (Shout out to the Anchor & Hope on the River Lea for exactly this). As it stands my favourite beer is Steady Rolling Man by Deya, and I am also a sucker for a Berliner Weiss, or Salted Gose. I play several instruments and currently play guitar for an Art-rock band called PACE.

George Blurton

Sales Manager

After years of necking pints of Guinness at the rugby club, I thought it was high time to start learning more about one of my favourite hobbies, beer. I’m a fiend for any sour beer so absolutely love the monthly release of Brick’s Sour Series. I also enjoy escaping the city for long walks on the beach at the weekend and know how to peel a cucumber with just my 2 front teeth! (which he gracefully discovered during his Take Me Out date on the Isle of Fernandoooooo!)

Janine Powell

Sales Support

I first got into beer after trying a West Coast IPA and never looked back after that. I think for that reason it’s still my fave style! I moved down to London from Birmingham to work in beer and love how fast paced and ever-changing the industry is, it definitely keeps you on your toes! I love to travel and enjoy seeking out breweries old and new while doing so. Maybe a bit of hiking here and there too to balance it all out.

Tom Cram

Warehouse & Logistics Manager

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

Project & Comms Manager

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!).

Luke Munro

Taproom Manager

After spending several years working for a large pub chain moving to an independent taproom is a dream come true. My time spent working in Peckham has allowed me to witness Brick’s growth first hand and I’d long been an admirer of theirs before joining the team. In fact, you could’ve caught me drinking a can or two of Peckham Pils on the long bus home from work back in 2015!

Callum Clayton

Assistant Manager - Taproom

Another Northerner to the team (yay!), I started my journey into craft beer when I moved to London a few years ago. Up until joining Brick in 2019 I worked in craft beer bars and now find it’s a great privilege to be working more directly with a brewery, especially one that’s constantly testing itself by brewing some of the most interesting beers I’ve seen in a London brewery.
