First look at Camden Town Brewery's plans to revamp London home

Camden Town Brewery has unveiled plans for a total revamp of its north London home, 10 years after it started brewing its famous Hells lager there.

The renovation will see the brewery arches transformed into a food and drink 'destination', with a 50-seat restaurant, extended tap room and outdoor drinking and dining area as well as a merchandise shop and brewery tour experience.

The project will also see the installation of Camden Town's first full on-site kitchen, which will offer a seasonal menu and be run by a local chef partner to be revealed shortly.

To facilitate the project, the existing brewery bar on Wilkins Street Mews has closed. A temporary pop-up bar will be open on the Mews from 1 March, and brewery tours will also be avaialble from this date.

Jasper Cuppaidge, founder of Camden Town Brewery, said: "I couldn’t be more excited about the continued transformation of our first home at Wilkin Street Mews in Camden.

"As the home of Hells, we will continue to bring the freshest beer experience and now with the extensive changes, we’ll have the capacity and resource to be able to not only offer but also host one of the very best beer drinking experiences. 

"It promises to be an oasis for beer drinkers, and the development will see the space become a community hub for beer, food, entertainment and education.”

The announcement comes as Camden Town Brewery announced a new partnership - and a new brew - with Sri Lankan restaurant Hoppers to celebrate the launch of its King's Cross site.

The Camden x Hoppers Tropical lager, designed to pair with spicy Sri Lankan cuisine, has been made using citra hops, lemon peel and amchur, a type of dried mango.
