First things first though, the beer. Tanker’s flagship beer is Sauna Session. We first tried this beer when they came to London in 2018 for a collaboration and tasting night with us in Bermondsey. We were quite taken aback by this truly unique beer. The beer uses a “tea” made from steeping Estonian birch leaves in water over night and using that for around half of the brewing liquor. All the flavour comes from this inventive method and absolutely no hops are used. The beer really stuck with us, so we thought it would be a fantastic idea to use this method to brew a kettle sour…
In line with our expansion plans, we are looking for a highly motivated, hard working, enthusiastic Production Brewer to join our team. Please see details here. Please send applications to firstname.lastname@example.org

On Friday 16th our Crowdfunding Campaign went publicly live! With the support of our closest community, we came to the table over 40% funded and we now ask the greater beer and business loving the community, in the UK and across the world, to invest in Anspach & Hobday.
It’s been a big year for A&H abroad. We’ve opened up new markets - France and Ireland - whilst vastly increasing our volumes to existing customers including Italy, Belgium, Spain & Australia. What this really means though, is that we get to go and be great ambassadors for our London beer (and drink) in these countries.
The Cream Ale has long been a favourite of the brewery. When we first brewed it back in 2014 it quickly became a go to for all of us. We discovered the style when Wetherspoons began bringing over Six Points beers into the UK, including their Cream Ale, Sweet Action, and were taken with smooth, crisp profile of the beer.
Over the past four years we have spent more than our fair share of time in Brussels, exploring the brewing and drinking culture of arguably the worlds most famous beer city. Although much of the beer offerings are steeped in tradition, there is a new wave of young, progressive brewers beginning to emerge, respectfully nudging the city’s beer scene into the modern day.
Last week were we privileged to pick up two awards at the last ever London Drinker festival, one for The Smoked Brown and one for The Table Porter. Set up by John and Christine Cryne over 30 years ago, it’s fair to say the London Drinker is one of the more progressive CAMRA festivals, with a well stocked Keg bar and a good showing of Saisons, sours and mixed-ferm beers.
