Greenwich brewery shut by new owners

A brewery at Morden Wharf in Greenwich is reported to have been closed with equipment moved off site.

Brew By Numbers announced last November a “temporary” closure of the site including the taproom. The site only opened in Greenwich in 2021. They then entered administration in early 2023.

Now The Drinks Business reports that private equity group Breal which purchased the company will move brewing equipment off-site.

With brewing gone, if the bar does reopen it will be without an associated brewery.

Site history

The onsite brewery and pub in Greenwich was part of place-making by U+I while they drew up plans for 1,500 homes which was approved.

U+I merged with LandSec and the new company recently sold the site to Galliard.

Then in January this year it was announced the site will be redesigned. However it’s not expected that the area where the pub resided should have been affected.

Given Brew By Numbers’ new owner is also reported to have moved brewing equipment off site at Brick Brewery – which they also recently took over – it appears part of a wider decision to locate brewing in Yorkshire and not site specific to Greenwich.

In addition, the bus garage at Morden Wharf recently saw plans for an extension in usage and does not seem impacted by Galliard taking on the wider site.
