Armitage worked in collaboration with the trio behind East end bars Discount Suit Company and The Sun Tavern.
The team has created a ginger beer made from fresh pressed ginger, hand squeezed lemon, cane sugar, malted barley, yeast and water. The product is brewed in small batches with pressed ginger root sediment.
Umbrella Brewing is housed in a formerly fire-damaged Victorian industrial building in Holloway, north London. The project to restore the original building, formulate the recipes and all the elements of graphic design and packaging artwork was self-funded.
Umbrella Brewing Ginger Beer is available through distributors or direct from the website.
