Craft Beer Co, the specialist beer bar concept launched by award-winning licensee Martin Hayes, has secured an outlet a Brixton for its third London site. The Hive on Station Road is to re-open under the Craft Beer Co banner in mid-September. The deal was handled by Davis Coffer Lyons. Hayes said: “This is great site, one we are proud to have secured despite interest from a number of other high-profile bidders, testimony I believe to the strength of the brand and covenant it carries with it.” The company opened its first site in London’s Clerkenwell last year and subsequently opened in Pimlico and Brighton. Hayes added: “The business is growing quickly and we intend to keep the pace up, which is based on finding the right sites in the right areas, on the right terms. We’re on a fantastic journey and the level consumer buy-in for the concept is staggering.”
