Sometimes, what brings people together is a cold glass of great beer—and in the case of Brixton Brewery, it all started when a friendship formed between two couples about their shared passion for all things beer and their home, Brixton.

The brewery began small, as all great things do—homebrewing and delivering each bottle personally to the people of Brixton—and has grown ever since. Now, Brixton is an established beer brand known not only in Brixton but in the whole of the UK and even beyond for their selection of award-winning beers that cater to everybody’s taste—so whatever type of beer you’re looking for, Brixton has got you covered.

We started in Brixton Brewery in 2013 and we’ve been brewing in this melting-pot part of south London ever since. Everything we do is supercharged with the buzz and electricity of our home, and its welcoming openness to new people and ideas.

Brixton Brewery’s taproom

Our locally crafted beers are modern classics with a Brixton twist - telling the story of Brixton in their names, vibrant designs and flavors. From our ultra-refreshing Coldharbour Lager to our hoppy, juicy Atlantic American Pale Ale to our experimental Ltd Edn series, our range of bold, modern and perfectly balanced brews offers something for everyone to enjoy.

Tell us about the design for your packaging and how you’re using them?

We've created two complementary packaging designs that encapsulate our brand essence. One of these designs prominently features our iconic bolts and chevrons pattern, while the other draws inspiration from a poem that we commissioned from local poet, Miss Yankey, celebrating all things Brixton.

What made noissue a good fit for your packaging?
