North London DC for brewer
20 November 2020
Independent British brewer, Beavertown Brewery, has launched its state-of-the-art Beaverworld facility at Enfield Distribution Park (ENDP), having signed a 25-year lease on a 126,595 sq ft warehouse/production unit last year.
The brewery was delivered on a pre-let basis with a tight delivery programme enabling brewing to commence within 12 months of the start of construction.
Now up and running, Beaverworld comprises a bespoke five vessel Krones Steinecker Brewhouse, packaging space, warehouse, logistics hub and offices. It is expected to produce 90 million pints of beer every year and will eventually incorporate a 20,000 sq ft visitor centre with bars, tours and a restaurant, creating up to 150 new jobs.
The brewery, founded by Logan Plant, the son of Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant, has been funded using a £40 million minority investment in the business by Heineken in 2018.
It is the latest success at ENDP for ASI and Graftongate, where five of the six new warehouse/production units are already occupied. The joint venture partners recently announced the letting of a speculative 85,000 sq ft building to two-person home delivery specialist, ArrowXL, who join a list of occupiers including Cook’s Delights, Farmdrop and DFS.
