Craft beer brewery London Fields has been bought out by Carlsberg UK and will operate it in a joint venture with New York’s Brooklyn Brewery.

The Hackney-based brewer was founded in 2011 and today’s announcement involves returning brewing to the company’s original north London railway arches home.

“We’re thrilled to add London Fields Brewery to our growing portfolio of great quality craft and specialty beers,” said Julian Momen, CEO of Carlsberg UK. “Our customers, and specifically those in London and other major cities, are looking to us to offer them the best possible range of interesting craft beers – and we think that, with nurturing, London Fields Brewery has huge potential. It’s the right move for us as we build a credible craft portfolio.”

London Fields is responsible for beers such as Craft Lager, Easy IPA and Shoreditch Triangle IPA. These will now become part of Carlsberg’s House of Beers offering alongside Brooklyn’s beers.

As Brooklyn Brewery CEO Eric Ottaway explained, “we’re excited to be able to work closely with this great London-based craft brewery. The range of beers, their eye-catching artwork and the great location of the brewery in Hackney makes for a fantastic platform. London Fields Brewery is surrounded by a thriving creative community that reminds us of home, and we’re looking forward to becoming part of it.”
