Carlsberg UK’s Acquisition of London Fields Brewery


Freeths LLP have advised Carlsberg UK on the deal

Carlsberg UK has acquired London Fields Brewery and will operate the business in a joint venture with Brooklyn Brewery from Brooklyn, New York.

London Fields Brewery, which was founded in 2011 in the vibrant London Fields neighborhood of Hackney, London, came to prominence through its range of iconic craft beers including Craft Lager, Easy IPA and Shoreditch Triangle IPA.

The London Fields Brewery will operate as an independent business within the joint venture between Carlsberg and Brooklyn Brewery. Its craft beer range will become part of the Danish brewer’s core portfolio in the UK and will also form part of its House of Beers range – which caters for premium venues across London and other major cities, and which already includes the Brooklyn Brewery craft beer portfolio.
