This is us
Murray Roos arrived in London from Cape Town, newly graduated as a Chemical Engineer and having spent an internship at Newland’s Brewery studying the production methods and the flavour profiles of some of the world’s leading beers.
As an avid beer fan, he loved the concept of designing something himself. So in 2015, he converted a garden shed in Wimbledon into a ‘microbrewery’ equipped with a pilot brewing kit, and a lot of ideas. He designed beers that he thought would compete on flavour, consistency and fizziness (!) and these were greeted with glee by those who sampled them.
The shed was then (un)predictably commandeered by the kids as a play den and his wife encouraged him to let them have it and to set up commercial premises instead.
Fast forward to 2018 and Signal is now based in deepest South London. We’re set snugly between Ikea, the tram stop and the back of Asda – the Golden Triangle of Croydon, where we have a pateint landlord, a hard-working and passionate team and a lively tap room!
Our emphasis is on very natural brewing practices and we use no preservatives or additives. We make unfiltered and unpasteurised beers which retain their flavour. Everything is carefully conditioned and gently carbonated, so you don’t end up feeling bloated.
We blend fine malted barleys and whole leaf hops and make a range of beers which we package on site.
So, go ahead – mail us, stock us or just come and see us!
