London-based brewer Small Beer Brew Co has received international accreditation for its commitment to a more sustainable business model.

The firm, based in Bermondsey, is now certified as B Corporation as a result of its sustainable production methods.

The Small Beer Brewery claims to be the only UK brewery known to champion a ‘dry floor’ policy, developed by the reworking of the brewing process in order to significantly reduce the amount of water needed to brew Small Beer.

In the past 18 months, the company has saved 1.4 million litres of water.

Future proof

Co-founder James Grundy said: “As a brewery we have always done things a little differently; as well as make great-tasting beer, we’ve ensured everything we do is done in a considerate way that future-proofs our business and the environment.

“We are very proud that our philosophy has been acknowledged by B Corp. We worked for it because it’s the way we want to do business​.”

The brewery has only been running since 2017 and seeks to develop a unique enterprise, recognised for producing a range of beers with a distinctive taste at a sociable strength, through an ethos of sustainability.

Lactose free

As a result, all Small Beer Brew Co beers are vegan, lactose-free and sustainably brewed.

As revealed in September, Britain’s best-selling beer brands, Budweiser and Stella Artois, announced a multi-million pound investment to eliminate plastic rings from can packaging across their entire UK-produced range by the end of 2020​.
