After falling in love with IPA's in 2013, Lee Hammerton, who back then was a business analyst, decided to give up his job and founded Hammerton Brewery in 2014. While building Hammerton Brewery, he found out he had a rich brewing heritage as there used to be a Hammerton Brewery that ceased to operate back in 1935 - Lee was a distant relation to the original founders.ย 

ย Karina, his then girlfriend and now wife, joined the adventure and together they began to trade in April 2014 with the first beer called N7 Pale Ale. Many years on we have brewed over 4 million pints in more than 12 different styles, with beer sold across the UK, Europe & as far afield as Hong Kong!ย
