Richmond Park

Drumroll!! BALLET LOOP is in the pipeline!!

Introducing Ballet Loop 3.0% 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, watermelon & stone fruits.

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.

New CASK ALES now available in mini-kegs and PUBS

We’ve got two new CASK ALES!

We have a super fresh Spring XPA 3.8% ABV session pale. It’s floral and crisp with a subtle sweetness from the honey added into the boil, and the delicate hop Ariana which provides blackberry and peachy notes.

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.

Or, perhaps you’re going back to a pub from 12th April? Be sure to check out the following beer gardens who’ll each be stocking this brand-new cask range:

How SYLVA is helping women in Kingston

In keeping with the spirit of International Women’s Day 2021, for every can of SYLVA sold, we’ll donate 10p to The Kingston Women’s Centre to help them continue their important work in the area.

In addition, anyone that places an order on the webshop throughout April will have the option to donate to this charity at checkout.

All donations will go towards renovating the derelict garages owned by The Kingston Women’s Centre, who want to create a large, bright, and safe therapeutic space for women. The team currently offer low cost, long-term, one-to-one counselling, and psychotherapy to clients.

However, their ambition is to extend their support system to include even more services and activities such as art therapies, new mum groups, plus anxiety and survivors’ groups. This will broaden their offering so they can continue to support an even greater community of wonderful women. Every donation at our checkout will help make this dream into reality!

Want to find out why SYLVA celebrates International Women’s Day?

Known internationally as “air girl” for her parachuting exploits, Sylva Boyden is the inspiration behind the naming of this small but mighty IPA. In 1919, Ms. Boyden became the first woman to jump from a balloon wearing a parachute and the event happened in Richmond Park.

To honour the achievements of SYLVA and to celebrate this year’s International Women’s Day theme #ChooseToChallenge, Frankie, Ellie and Miranda from the TPB team brewed this punchy IPA on #IWD2021.

Read the full story about SYLVA in our blog here – it’s EPIC.

Plus, stock up on 330ml cans of SYLVA while you can.

We have a new beer out.  YES!  Going on-line here tomorrow and available for the weekend, here’s how it came about…

Sometimes all the bad news streaming in can feel pretty depressing.  We wanted some positivity around us.

At the height of lockdown, we found ourselves turning to Richmond Park more so than ever, for respite from the news and a break from the glow of screen-based home schooling.

During this time of reflection and inspired by the desire for customers to be able to imagine themselves in the sanctuary of the open air, we began experimenting with the new innovative location system  what3words. Bingo!   We located a spot with a very special combination of words ///lovely.venue.earth and an idea for a new beer was formed.

Here it is, a Kveik IPA celebrating some of the best ingredients from around our lovely earth, and a new style for us. From Norway, Kveik (meaning ‘yeast’ in local Norwegian dialect) is an ancient strain of yeast, originally used in Norwegian farmhouse beers. It is super-fast and able to ferment at high temperatures. Wheat and oats create a rich, balanced smooth texture and then the beer is dry hopped with Galaxy from Australia, Nelson Sauvin from N.Z, Idaho 7 and Pekko from the US, which, when combined create a heady mix of fruity flavours including citrus, peach and passion fruit, as well as earthy and piney undertones. Yes, it’s hazy too.  We like it like that.

What3words.com have created an efficient mapping system, by dividing much of the world into 3×3 metre squares and giving each square three associated words thus pinpointing its exact location.  The words have been translated into 45 languages and are now utilised by emergency services as a means to help find and rescue those trapped in unpredictable or dangerous locations. There are over a million squares just in Richmond Park alone!  The Park Brewery is thrilled to work in tandem with what3words, to promote this new innovative system and celebrate the lifeline of the natural world, that has provided respite for so many of us, through these hard times.

///lovely.venue.earth urges you to take a moment to reflect on life’s simplest pleasures; a cold beer after a challenging cycle in the park, a picnic on a sunny day, or the chance to simply sit amongst nature wherever you may find it. Josh, once again is responsible for the image on the label, taken from the location itself. If you can’t make it to the spot in person, you can still take in the view. (Broomfield Hill – near Kingston Gate, Richmond Park).

Give it a try, sit back, relax and enjoy 🙂
