  • After 5 years of anticipation, London-based Forest Road Brewing Co. was about to open their brewery. Their purchase of a 4-vessel, 50-barrel brewhouse had just made it all the way across the ocean from Northern California, via the Panama Canal, only to be halted by Covid-19. With the majority of sales from kegs and business halted, this company is facing the challenges of the pandemic and moving forward.

    Immediately after the lockdown, Forest Road Brewing Co. converted their pub into a sales space, dishing out take-out beer, they have supported the NHS with their sales and are currently delivering door-to-door in London’s only beer tap delivery service.
