Fast Track 100

During the first national lockdown, this craft brewer pivoted to selling online and increased its production of canned beer. Its pale ales have quirky names such as Neck Oil and Nanobot, with Lazer Crush being its alcohol-free version. Founder Logan Plant, 41 — son of Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant — brewed his first beer in a rice pan in 2011. In 2018, Heineken bought a £40m minority stake to fund its new 129,000 sq ft Beaverworld brewery in north London, which opened in August. Sales reached £35.2m in the year to March.
