FRESH DROP ALERT!! Killcat is back

The EPIC Killcat Pale Ale 3.7% is BACK on the webshop.

The ultimate treat for bank holiday revelries, this fresh drop is tasting better than ever. It’s crisp, hoppy, and refreshing. A pale ale packed with a punch that belies its strength.

It’s been dry hopped with a number of our favourite New Zealand varieties for bright citrus and floral notes, with aromas of lemon and lime.

Did you know? Killcat takes it’s name from the sinister sounding Killcat Corner, on the east side of Richmond Park – near Robin Hood Gate. Its origin remains a mystery.

Shop Killcat now the webshop!

Have a hoppy bank holiday!

Phantom Kölsch is COMING SOON

BIG NEWS!! We’re brewing a fresh batch of Phantom Kölsch style lager 4.2% ABV!!! Fruity, clean and crisp, it’ll be back in cans very soon! Watch this space.

It’s a firm favourite with our customers. If you haven’t tried it yet, get ready to experience what all the fuss is about!

Brewed with lager malts and fermented with ale yeast at a low temperature it is then lagered for a minimum of 4 weeks, and lightly hopped with Hallertau Blanc.

For those who are new to our beers, when it comes to naming them, we try and link up with some great stories about our local park – Richmond Park. The codename ‘Phantom’ was given to the special recon unit based in the Park during WW2 which maintained vital lines of communication during the war. Learn more about this here.

We first brewed this beer 3 years ago because there were plenty of pilsners and hells lagers around; we wanted to be more adventurous.

Join our mailing list to be the first to know when Kölsch is LIVE on the webshop!

Speak soon!

The Park X The Park Brewery: Glastonbury Beer

Once again we’re delighted to announce a collab with our friends at The Park and have a heap of exciting things to come this summer! A brand-new Farmhouse Pale Ale brewed with wildflowers picked from Glastonbury fields, limited edition artwork labels and a competition. All to celebrate what would have been the 2021 Glastonbury Festival weekend, in late June!!

The Park is an award-winning experiential agency, founded in London in 2018 by three friends who came up with the idea whilst at The Park stage at the UK’s legendary Glastonbury festival.

You may remember we collaborated with The Park in 2020 during the first UK lockdown.  We all share a love of Glastonbury Festival and to mark the weekend we agreed to produce some limited edition beers.  The Park sourced four up and coming illustrators who created these amazing limited edition Glastonbury beer labels and of course, we filled them with delicious beer.

This year, we’re doing it all again!! The designs and the beer will be different, but hopefully even better! So, get ready to round up your mates for your own Glasto Fest in your garden. Or, take a couple of our limited-edition tinnies to the park.

Whatever you decide, watch this space!! More details to follow soon.

Hope to see you at our tap room soon (we’re reopening tonight – eek)!!

UPDATE on 5L Mini-Kegs

Once again, we’ve got lots of Mini-Kegs flying out and we want to make sure you get the most out of them. Here are some basic instructions and information on the ultimate weekend must-have.

Firstly a small change! We’re now delivering Mini-Kegs Tuesday – Friday: HURRAY!

You must pre-order Mini-Kegs if you want to collect them from the brewery shop. Simply buy them on our webshop and leave us a note to say you want to collect. This is so we can prep them in advance and avoid long queues at the shop.

As always, our Mini-Kegs are only available for delivery within 5 miles of our brewery. We’re really sorry if you fall outside this area. Drop us a line and we’ll see what we can do for you.

Please keep them chilled where possible and ideally open within 7 days. Once opened best consumed within 3 days.

Mini-Keg Instructions:

  • Leave upright
  • If possible store cool
  • To dispense beer pull out the red plastic tap on the side
  • Open vent on the top of the mini-keg
  • Pour beer

IMPORTANT!!! Close vent between pourings to ensure gas is not lost and to stop beer going flat.

For extra information please see the QR code on the lid of the keg, which links to a demonstration video by the manufacturer and shows very clearly how to use them.

There’s also another QR code which tells you all about how our Mini-Kegs off-set their carbon footprint – don’t get the two confused 😉

If you fancy ordering a Mini-Keg, we’ve got Amelia Pale Ale 4.2%, Killcat Pale Ale 4.5%, or Rituals at Dawn Coffee Porter 4.5%.

Hope you enjoy!  Any questions drop us a line: hello@theparkbrewery.com

Beer Day Britain is COMING!!!

This year we’re excited to be taking part in Beer Day Britain 2021 to celebrate #NationalBeerDay.

We’ll be opening our tap room for a one-of-a-kind TAP ROOM QUIZ!! Kicking off at 7pm on Tuesday 15th June 2021. Entry is FREE, and you’ll get to enjoy plenty of our fresh and tasty beers. Advanced bookings only. Don’t miss out – book ahead!! Limited space available!

Winner will get a 24 mixed case of our awesome beer – you can even choose the beer yourselves.

Beer Day Britain is an annual celebration on June 15th for all beer lovers and it celebrates all beer including traditional ales, mainstream lagers, and limited edition craft beer and everything in between!!

June 15th is significant because that is also the date the Magna Carta was sealed in 1215. The great charter mentions ale in Article 35, quoting: “Let there be throughout our kingdom a single measure for wine and a single measure for ale and a single measure for corn…..”

Ale was so important in England in 1215 that it was cited in one of the most significant legal documents in history! Today beer and pubs are still central to British life and seven out of 10 drinks sold in a pub are beer.

So go on!! Get ready for our tap room quiz to celebrate Beer Day Britain!!!

Book your table now by emailing: hello@theparkbrewery.com
