West Australian craft beer brewery Little Creatures has launched a 557sqm microbrewery, taproom and restaurant in the UK.
The Lion-owned Little Creatures now has venues in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Singapore, Taipei and Auckland.
Located in the heart of London’s King’s Cross creative district, the brewery will showcase a selection of Little Creatures’ highly acclaimed craft beers, as well as running special collaborations with London-based breweries such as Fourpure Brewing Co.
Toby Knowles, Lion Regional Director for UK & Europe, said: “We’re proud that a UK home for Little Creatures has been founded in one of the world’s most popular cities, where the brand’s values of individuality, adventure and inclusiveness will be right at home. London has been home to a real renaissance in world-class craft breweries in recent years and it’s exciting to bring Little Creatures to such a vibrant market.”
The UK craft beer market is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing, representing around five per cent of global volume.
The venue provides a bricks-and-mortar home away from home for Little Creatures, with beer on tap, matching food, “plus the famous West Aussie hospitality”.
Knowles added: “Our aim for this venue is to further enrich the UK craft community, meeting the rising demand for diverse, premium craft experiences. Following the success of recent site launches in Asia, we can’t wait to introduce Little Creatures to UK consumers and to establish a spiritual home for the brand in London.”
The Little Creatures taproom can be found near Granary Square and the new Coal Drops Yard development in King’s Cross – 1 Lewis Cubitt Walk, N1C 4DL.
