SOUND THE ALARM!! New beer Ballet Loop is here!

BALLET LOOP our brand-new beer is live on the webshop!

A low ABV beer at 3.4%, it’s rich and juicy, with low bitterness and aromas of pineapple, melon and apricot.

Named after a well-known cycling route through Richmond Park, Ballet Loop is brewed with a New England yeast strain which helps to elevate the hop flavour and aroma.

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!!!

We’re HIRING!!!

We’re after a Dray-Person to come and help us out with deliveries. This is a part-time role initially (2-3 days p/w Wednesday and Thursday), but with the possibility of more work on the brewery-floor in the future.

It’s heavy work involving loading up the casks/kegs on to a van and then driving round to pubs and bars in the local area and beyond (including London) and unloading.  Also, collecting empties and returning them to HQ.  This person plays a key role in representing us, so we need someone personable, reliable and enthusiastic.

Applicants must be over 25 and have a full and clean driving license.

For more details please drop us a line with your CV: theparkbrewery@gmail.com

Joining the mission to rewild our future!

We’re excited to announce we’ve partnered with Citizen Zoo, a local social enterprise committed to rewilding & conservation in the UK.

Over the next few months, we’re on a mission to help raise money for Citizen Zoo to help fund their vital work in rewilding our future. Their projects and services aim to rebuild nature to a more functional state and bring more people out to enjoy the great outdoors.

Come and enjoy our tasty beer in our Tap Room in August 2021 and you can choose to donate to this social enterprise via our Goodbox donation portal. Simply select the amount you wish to donate and tap away with your contactless card.

Every penny donated will help support Citizen Zoo’s ongoing projects. From the likes of the Get inVOLEd water vole conversation project taking place in our local Hogsmill River, to the Hop of Hope project that is reintroducing Grasshoppers to East Anglia.

We hope you’re as excited as we are to kick-start our collaboration. It’s reinforcing the things we value the most in our local area and showcasing our ongoing commitment to creating a better and greener world for our future generations!

Keep your eyes peeled as we’ll keep you up to date with anything new on our social media @theparkbrewery and on our blog. In the meantime, learn more about the projects our Goodbox donations will be supporting here.

GALLOWS is back!

Don’t miss out on our gorgeous Gallows, American Pale Ale 4.5% ABV.

It’s a sweet golden pale with a fine fruity mix of tropical and mango flavours, with a rich aroma from the Simcoe and Mosaic hops used in the boil. Stock up whilst it’s fresh off the line, from as little as £18 for a 6 pack.

This beer takes its name from the gallows which stood near Ladderstile Gate in Richmond Park. These gallows were originally in Surbiton but were moved to a spot near Ladderstile Gate sometime before mid-17th Century.

The infamous gallows are no longer in the park. But be sure to stop by Gallows Pond which gets its name from the gallows that stood nearby. Spookily, the pond was chocked by an invasive weed so had to be re-dug in 2015, close to its original site.

Anyway, back to our beer! Gallows is now live on the webshop. Some say it’s one of our best core range beers – we’ll let you decide.

Shop Gallows now.

Don’t forget, we love to see how you’re enjoying our beer. Tag us in your photos on social media @theparkbrewery for the chance to feature on our channels.

PHANTOM KÖLSCH is back in 5L MINI-KEG

Don’t miss out on our 5L mini-kegs of Phantom Kölsch style lager 4.2% ABV this bank holiday weekend.

It’s fruity, clean and crisp. 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.

As with all of our beers, when it comes to naming 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.

Our 5L mini-kegs are the ultimate accompaniment to a bank holiday garden BBQ or a trip to Richmond Park! For only £23 for 8-9 pints, get ready to pick up a bargain!!

Shop Phantom Kölsch mini-kegs now.

Speak soon!

Drumroll!! BALLET LOOP is in the pipeline!!

Introducing Ballet Loop 3.4% ABV, our brand-new beer!!

Named after a well-known cycling route through Richmond Park, Ballet Loop is brewed with a New England yeast strain which helps to elevate the hop flavour and aroma. Although it’s a low ABV beer, it has a rich and juicy mouthfeel, low bitterness and pungent aromas of pineapple, melon and apricot.

Our cycling friends may be familiar with the Ballet Loop cycle route. The inner Ballet Loop is perfect for beginners (and those only interested in half laps). It takes in the best of Richmond Park via a quieter road away from the cars, and cuts through the middle of the park past the Royal Ballet School, also known as White Lodge.

Keep your eyes peeled as this new beer will be coming to the webshop in the next few weeks.

Plus, we’ve launched a Golden Pale Ale at 4.4% ABV. This has a tangerine and citrus finish from the US hop Cascade and the German hop Mandarina Bavaria, offering a comforting and tasty treat for those longer lighter evenings.

Can’t wait to taste them?

Try these at home with our 5L cask mini-kegs – perfect for a summer garden party or a trip to Richmond Park. Order on the webshop for delivery every Friday. We have a limited stock of these so grab them while you can.

KLAXONS please for our NEW Kingston Gate Lager

Kingston Gate Lager is now LIVE on the webshop! This is our brand-new lager, hopped exclusively with English hops and served in a smaller 330ml can. It’s crisp, pale and packed with flavour. Think of English countryside hedgerows and blackcurrants from all the English hops.

We’ve named this lager after our closest gateway to Richmond Park, just a short walk-away from the brewery.

Our cycling buddies or those that live locally might recognise the distinctive hill pictured on the can. Signalling the road home from Ham cross towards Kingston gate, it’s the final bump in the road before Kingston gate comes into view.

From as little as £12 for 6 cans, it’s a lovely light pick-me up if you’re wanting to take a few tins to the Park to treat yourselves after one hell of a different year!

Head to the webshop here.

We’d love to know how you’re enjoying our beer! Share a picture on social media and tag us @theparkbrewery, so we can repost it on our channels.

Cheers for now!

Team PB 🙂
