HammerSmith Ales started in 2005 , the idea for the name Hammersmith was originally inspired after the town outside of London, England. HammerSmith is rich in history and has a few landmarks significant to music, a famous bridge and an important stop along the river Thames.
My interest in British culture started many years ago, I have always been a fan of British beer , authors of literature, and British personalities. Early on in my exploration of beer, I quickly discovered breweries like Fuller's, Shepard Naeme, Young's, Samuel Smith and Greene King.
When I started brewing, I quickly decided that I was going to focus on British style beers like English Bitters, Extra Special Bitter , India Pale Ale, Old Ale and Barleywine.
