The Bullfinch Brewery was first set up in the kitchen of former  travelling sound engineer, beer enthusiast and home brewer Ryan Mclean.


Ryan's travels have ignited a passion  and love for great beer.  His continuing commitment to the quality of beer and his enthusiasm have created Bullfinch Brewery and its contemporary take on craft beer here in the UK.  








Ryan has been brewing professionally since 2014 and is making progressive beers that blend experimental ideas with traditional brewing methods and techniques.


Hidden away under a railway arch in South East London Ryan can be found brewing his modern ideas on a much loved and used, historic 5 Barrel kit originally built by Charles Wells.


Here is where old meets new, very much like the distinct taste and style of our beers.


Ryan heads up a small team at Bullfinch Brewery that are involved in the brewery at every level, your quite likely to be served your beer in the taproom by the same person that helped to make it.



We are proud to be creating unique and interesting flavours that are breaking away from traditional style guidelines.


Our main aim is to produce forward thinking flavourful beers without compromising on their taste and drinkability.


We hope you enjoy your beers as much as we do!

We have kicked off the series with the Australian hop Vic Secret- extraordinarily fruity it smells and tastes like all the fruits in the fruit bowl.

Hazy, smooth, juicy and silky with just enough bitterness to keep it moerishly drinkable.

Single Hop Pale Ale 

The Apollo series is our exploration into the full potential of single variety hops.

Number two in our exploration into hops is Cascade. The much underratted work horse hop of most modern breweries has brought it's A game and imparted complex citrus along with a soft pillowy mouth feel with a complex sherbet Lemon flavour
