Following swiftly after Patchwork Present is another local digital startup business, EeBria.com. Technically, it's based in the further-flung parts of New Cross, but its founder is local and it's about booze, so... David explains:
EeBria.com is a new way to buy alcohol online – buying direct from the best small independent producers in the country, from craft breweries to artisan distilleries and English wines. When you order you are buying direct from the producer, and they ship direct to you, with a personal touch.
We currently only sell bottles (hence the absence of the Brockley Brewery!) but have got some fantastic producers including Kernel Brewery and Brew By Numbers in Bermondsey and the hottest new brewery at the moment Siren Craft Brew. Spirits include Sacred Spirits, the City of London Distillery and Strathleven Distillers.
The list will continue to grow, with five more expected in the next week. We also hope to be recruiting in October and would love a local resident with a love of craft drinks to join us – I’ll get in touch again at that time.
