Peckham micropub with Deptford brewery enters administration

A company with a micropub in Peckham and brewing facilities in Deptford has entered administration.

Brick Brewery has seen administrators appointed as rising costs hit businesses ranging from energy costs to the price of raw materials.

Their taproom is located near Peckham Rye station just off Peckham High Street.

Housing nearby

In recent months some have heavily campaigned against new homes being built in Peckham not too far from the taproom, with The Guardian getting on board with opponents whilst at the same time failing to mention potential social housing (around 300 in total) as part of development and benefits to local business.

That’s despite the proposed development site comprising a large car park and predominantly a low density supermarket near two railway stations and many bus routes. The Morrisons would be replaced on site.

It’s been stated Brick Brewery may gain a reprieve, and if they do then new housing and residents in the near vicinity could help the company enjoy a long term future in Peckham and protect employment in their larger brewery.

But you probably won’t see that in your NIMBY supporting local and national press forever airing the grievances of some while ignoring widespread benefit to others that new housing – including hundreds of social homes – can provide.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

  • There are 2 sides to every housing discussion John, and both are represented, we all know your feelings, but people who have lived in an area for a long time have rights too to maintain a decent environment without mass overcrowding. as is happening in RBG with little thought for locals.

  • I’m not getting this housing shortage. There seems to be never enough. What about the space for nature? Do we have to build on every possible space? Is it really healthy for a city to become home to so many?
