New Beer Yomp!

Fancy a yomp in the park?  Not really been the weather for it, so it’s probably better to settle for a Yomp in the pub.  Our new amber rye ale is a very quaffable tasty little number.  Dry hopped with Ekuanot and Simcoe, it has flavours of oranges and stone fruits.  Look out for it in a pub near you OR come and try it on a Friday or Saturday evening down the Tap Room.  Details on our events page 🙂


We are sorry to announce that our amazing, gold award winning, Lemon Sour IPA cans have been recalled.  More importantly if you have one in your possession, please be sure to dispose of it carefully (details below).

Due to an unexpected secondary fermentation in the can, accelerated by the recent heat wave, some of the cans we have in storage have been exploding. It is most likely due to the lemons, used in the conditioning process, prior to packaging.  We will be looking into this in more detail to avoid it happening again.

We are removing them from all shops and outlets and have disposed of all the remaining cans at the brewery.

If you still have a can, please make sure you handle with care. If it is stored in a fridge there is a good chance it will be ok and still drinkable cold. If it is not, then be careful, as the pressure has built up inside the can and it is very likely that the top will explode.  We are using rubber gloves and goggles to dispose of the cans, placing them in a bucket of cold water and then opening them under water and disposing of the contents.  In some cases, just moving the cans is enough to make them blow, so please keep at arm’s length and be extremely cautious.

We are absolutely gutted about this and sorry to anyone who has been affected. It is a real shame that such a great beer (probably one of our best) has come to such an abrupt end, however, the safety of our customers comes first.

Please handle with care and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us


Dragon Boat Race

We have finally got our act together this year and will be taking part in the Kingston Rotary Club annual DRAGON BOAT RACE on the 21st July 2019.

This is a massive event in the Kingston summer calendar with each of the 60 teams raising money for charity, while attempting to win races on the river, in teams of 16.

Our first training session was on Monday evening. A brutal introduction to the sport, in the lashing rain. We donned our waterproofs and toughed it out, even had a bit of a laugh, eventually being forced to come in due to thunder and lightning!

We have chosen to support the FRIENDS OF RICHMOND PARK dedicated to the conservation and protection of the park. There is so much work which goes on behind the scenes to keep this 2,500 acres of National Nature Reserve & Site of Special Scientific Interest, as amazing as it is. I’m sure most of us locals, take it for granted.

So please support us and the future of Richmond Park by sponsoring us, here’s the LINK



And if you happen to be free on the 21st July – come and cheer us on! We’ll need all the help we can get!
