We moved here about 5 years ago. Expressway gives me the opportunity to run my business because we have the co-working space outside, hot desks where you can just come sit down and plug in, there are also break out areas and a coffee shop with a Dock side entrance now that is absolutely beautiful.

A fiercely independent, family-owned brewery based next to the oldest Dock in London. We are proud to be in an area with such a proud industrial heritage, where the first IPAs were shipped from. Whilst using traditional brewing techniques, we like to create our beers with a modern twist, and we only use the best quality ingredients.
We believe that a good beer should be packed with flavour, but above all it should be balanced. This is what we aim to achieve in every beer we produce. All our beer is brewed and bottled in-house by hand, with the utmost care and attention.
We love how Expressway has improved our once neglected street. Turning it into a much more approachable area that embraces industry (once the life blood of the Docks) and creativity. Making it vibrant again!
