About Us

Truman's has been a part of London life for over 350 years. Closed in 1989 during (very) dark days for the British brewing industry, we have been working hard since 2010 to bring Truman's back to its former glory and we’re well on our way. We are now one of the largest independent brewers in London. 

Our fantastic team have a huge love for beer and it’s really important to us that everyone has a great time in the process of making and selling it! We brew an eclectic range of award-winning beers in keg, cask and cans at our brewery in Hackney Wick including our flagship Roller IPA. 

In 2021 we will be moving our entire brewery operation to a new site in Blackhorse Lane, Walthamstow which will feature a brand-new state of the art custom brewkit, an awesome tap room, visitor centre and plenty more! It’s going to be an epic new adventure.

We also own and operate the Newman Arms in Fitzrovia and Brick Lane Brews in London City Airport, a taproom and brewery tours.

Role Overview – Production Brewer

We’re a small brewer with big ideas and you’ll be joining a team of people who love to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in with a ‘can do’ attitude – we’ll need you to be the same. We can certainly guarantee that no two days here are the same and that you will have fun and enjoy being a part of a great business and team.

Due to our exciting expansion plans we require a full time Production Brewer.

If you love beer, are an enthusiastic and fun individual who isn’t afraid to get stuck in, and you’re keen to learn and adapt quickly as we continue to grow, then we’d love to hear from you.
