Plans approved for Wimbledon Brewery
The Wimbledon Brewery Company Ltd today announces that it has received planning approval
from Merton Council to open a 30-barrel brewery at College Fields, Prince Georges Road,
Wimbledon, SW19 2PT.
Wimbledon Brewery will produce exceptionally crafted cask and keg beers, to be launched in the
spring of 2015.
The first Wimbledon Brewery Company was established in 1832 in Wimbledon Village, opposite
what is now the Dog and Fox pub. A five-story tower brewery, it was the tallest building in
Wimbledon, until it was consumed by fire in January 1889.
Mark Gordon, 46 year-old entrepreneur and Wimbledon resident, has founded the brewery. He
has partnered with Master Brewer, Derek Prentice, who will be Head Brewer.
Mark Gordon adds: “The combination of Derek’s expertise and experience together with
ingredients of the highest quality will ensure an exceptional product. We aim to be the preferred
choice for discerning beer drinkers.”
Derek Prentice, Head Brewer says: “I am very much looking forward to working with Mark to
bring brewing back to Wimbledon. It is an exciting opportunity for me to be in at the very early
stages of concept and design so that we can incorporate some of the best features of traditional
brewing with modern materials and ideas.”
