I’ve written before about how I came to work with Hammerton and the work initially undertaken. http://tomoboyledesigns.co.uk/2014/06/11/hammerton-brewery-resurrected/
This has then developed into helping them apply their bottle label graphics over some wonderful illustrations – which they commission for their specialty beers. For example ‘Baron H’ – an Earl Grey Black IPA, ‘Geist Weiss’ a delicious (and a first for me) White IPA and ‘Life of Mars’ a splendid red ale.
They won a host of awards this year at the SIBA beer awards with N7 doing well and N1 winning the overall category – taking Gold as The Champion Beer in London & The South East. Quite an achievement. What’s also nice is that I recently read that labels have a significant influence on taste. Does this therefore mean I can take some credit for their success?! Ha ha, I wish – but I think not. It was a collaborative effort with owner Lee Hammerton who had a wonderfully clear vision of what he did and didn’t like and what would suit his audience.
Not only that – their machinery, brewers and ingredients are first rate – it is this and a lot of hard work that has allowed them to get the recognition they deserve. Their success will continue as they are now considered to be one of the best new emerging breweries of recent years.
I look forward to sharing the next Hammerton project with you very soon.
