James Yeomans founded Hop Stuff Brewery in 2013 having grown tired of banking life. Inspired by the US craft beer scene but disappointed by the industry in the UK James wanted to create a brewery focused on making craft beer accessible. The business has successfully crowdfunded twice, raising over £800,000 in alternative funding. James has grown the business to around £2,000,000 revenue, and aims to expand Hop Stuff Brewery to become one of London’s largest independent brewers.
