Company Drinks is an art project in the shape of a drinks company.

It links the history of East Londoners ‘going hop picking’ in Kent to the formation of a new community enterprise, which brings people together to pick, process and produce drinks in east London today. Company Drinks is a new type of company, where the commercial supports the communal and cultural.

Each year, we run a full drinks production cycle of growing, picking, processing, branding, bottling, trading and reinvesting. We produce syrups, sodas, saps, tonics, ciders, pops and beers and we create an open, inter-generational and cross-cultural public space, where we can meet to produce something useful with and for each other.

Since 2014 we have hosted a pop-up bar at Frieze Art Fair London, and we’re thrilled to have been invited back for 2018. This year we will be serving up a new selection of sodas (bottled at Square Root London), foraged cordials and, of course, our fresh Green Hop Beer, picked in Kent and bottled (at The Kernel Brewery) just weeks before.

Company Drinks was set up by Kathrin Böhm of Myvillages in May 2014, with the help of the Create Art Award. We registered it as a Community Interest Company in 2015. Today, it’s run by Kathrin, Cam Jarvis, Pip Field, Oribi Davies and Tracky Crombie. Follow on TwitterInstagram and Facebook.
