We've just welcomed the Wild Card Brewery into the 31DOVER.com family. They're an awesome East London brewery that's doing more than just making excellent Craft Beers...
The Wild Card Brewery was basically a hobby that got way out of hand! The trio behind the beer began trading with the use of a personal credit card - they're an unlikely success story and the Wild Card crew punches well above its weight. Eventually with the backing of peer-to-peer lending from local supporters, the brewery moved into it's own site in Walthamstow in January 2014, where it operates a six barrel operation. They're now well-known for no-nonsense, uncompromising beers.
