DALSTON'S NEIGHBOURHOOD BREWERY
40FT is an independent brewery in Dalston, Hackney, producing fresh modern, beer.
Starting in the kitchen of a Hackney Houseshare where three homebrewers made beer for their house parties, the venture quickly moved into two 20ft shipping containers located in a disused Dalston car park in 2015, after convincing the head brewer of their local brewery to join them.
Over the last 6 years, 40FT brewery has grown organically by adding more shipping containers like lego and a building a talented team of 15 people.
40FT is now brewing to capacity on a 10HL brew kit, with an output of 7,000 pints a week pouring in pubs and restaurants in East London as well as 40FT's award winning taproom.
Our taproom is the heart of the 40FT Brewery. We aim is to make this space Dalston's living room, an inclusive space where everyone is welcome. In 2021 we were honoured to be awarded UK's Best Independent Craft Beer Taproom by our trade body SIBA.
We have ten taps pouring fresh beer brewed on site. You can always find our core range as well as special releases from our brewers, limited editions and collaboration brews. We also offer takeaway from our fridge with core range beers and limited editions in cans and sharing bottles. Pre-order is available here.
We also have natural wines, a guest cider, RTD cocktails and whisky. We offer a limited food menu of flatbreads and small plates from our sister venue, Acme Fire Cult
We have capacity for just over 100 guests at our taproom with a heated, covered decking and cosy indoor space.

In addition to our Taproom we have expanded our space to open a restaurant, Acme Fire Cult, with renowned chefs Andrew Clarke and Daniel Watkins.
Acme Fire Cult offers a new approach to live fire cooking, where vegetables take centre stage, and where food and drink are intrinsically linked; from using by-products from our beer production such as yeast and spent grain to make ferments and hot sauces, to using Acme’s favourite ingredients as adjuncts in our collaboration beers.
Acme also has an extended drinks menu with cocktails and wines and of course, more 40FT beers.
The restaurant offers both indoor andh outdoor seating with table service in both areas. To avoid disappointment please book in advance.
