The Belleville Brewing Co. was set up by ten dads, all with children at Belleville primary school, south-west London.
Belleville brewing was born out of a beer festival to fundraise for the primary school, Head brewer Adrian Thomas' son attended. When the idea was put to the PTA they wholeheartedly agreed on an evening for the dads.
When collecting the beer for the festival and seeing the success of it, Adrian began to realise what had happened to the brewing scene in his home country after growing up in Sussex drinking Harveys and King & Barnes. It inspired him to start brewing himself, and after a few false starts, they created Belleville Brewing Co.
