About me

I’m Alex and I am Dogs Grandad Brewery.

I have been brewing for just over 3 years now – on my home set up, volunteering at breweries over London and doing a few courses to fine tune. Dogs Grandad was born when I decided to turn my passion into a profession – and I cant wait to get started.

This is me and Solo, my chief adviser and brewery mascot. You might recognise him from the logo

At Dogs Grandad Brewery I am going to be making hop forward beers that are easy to drink using my favourite hops and a neutral yeast. The beers will be hazy but the ABV wont be over the top. All beers are Vegan friendly and I only use quality, natural ingredients in every beer that I brew.


The beer

My vision is to bring you hop forward beers in my favourite styles which include; a Pale Ale, IPA, Session IPA, and a Table Beer.

All the beers are generously dry hopped with a different combo of my favourite hops. I use a reverse osmosis system to strip back the hard London water and go for a soft and smooth mouthfeel.

We sell cans of beer online, on draft in the Taproom, or as takeaway at the same microbrewey, in Brixton. We are a 5 minute walk from Brixton Underground Station.


The Brixton Taproom

The taproom in Brixton is now open and we are serving a wide variety of IPA’s, guest ales, ciders and even lagers.

A full selection includes:

  • Pale Ale
  • IPA
  • Black IPA
  • Extra Pale Ale
  • Cider
  • Lager
