Small Beer's mission is to make your life easier and taste better. That's why we specialise in brewing beer that's full of flavour, but doesn't slow you down.

With a record 8m taking part in Dry January this year, the Small Beer Brewery is here to help you find the answer to 'enjoyment without the consequences' all year round. With Small Beer, striking the perfect balance doesn't need to be a matter of 'drinking' or 'not drinking'.

Our range of five very different beer styles below 2.8% is designed to give you choice rather than an ultimatum.

Since our raise in 2020, we’ve continued to champion sustainable business, becoming a 1% For the Planet member and winning Best Organic Initiative at The Drinks Business Green Awards. Sales growth has seen us become the house beer of London’s iconic Beaumont Hotel, as well as gaining listings across Planet Organic stores following on from our very first billboard campaign. New export markets include Norway, Finland and South Korea.

Having delivered 137% YOY revenue growth in FY 2020/21 to £1,032,919 (net loss for the same period, £422,626) we’re ready for our next phase of expansion, by boosting our brewing capacity and streamlining our operations in order to meet the increasing demand for lower ABV.

Now is your chance to join the movement.


Founders, James Grundy and Felix James have a wealth of experience working at the forefront of the drinks industry. James started out in the wine trade, while Felix originally cut his teeth in quality control and production at AB InBev and Fuller's, before they both met heading up teams at Sipsmith Gin, the brand behind the gin boom that is still widely spread today.

From their SE London brewery, Felix says "We have re-worked the brewing process to focus on flavour maximisation over the historic alcohol creation. We can't produce 'big' beer on our kit, but we think we can produce the very best lower ABV beer that the world has ever tasted!"

Head of Operations, Alex has a Masters in manufacturing engineering - graduating into the Nestle Manufacturing Graduate Scheme. He then managed the UKs first underground farm, 33m below the streets of Clapham. A keen homebrewer he brings to Small Beer his passion for beer and experience over a range of operations.

Alex says "People talk about session beer, but these are true session beers, mid-strength with beautifully balanced flavour profiles, that don't leave you suffering the following day."

James "At Small Beer we're not only building a brand, we're at the forefront of an entirely new category!"
