Big Smoke Brew Co
The Park Brewery

The Park Brewery

Our main aim is to deliver thought provoking beer with big flavour and aroma. All of our beers are hop forward. We don’t rely on the malt base to provide flavour, with our core range particularly; the emphasis is on extracting as much as we possibly can from the lovely hops available to us from around the world. When we began this little venture finding beer in the UK which packed lots of hoppy punch was a challenge, so we set about trying to re-create some of the great tasting beer from the US and bring it to our part of the world. The Park Brewery was established by Josh and Frankie Kearns, a husband and wife team. Born from obsessive home brewing throughout 2012–2013 and after encouraging feedback from friends and local bottle shops, we made the leap. We invested in a small kit, found local premises and took the brewing out of the family kitchen. We’ve formulated a range of five beers covering some of our favourite styles. We also make seasonal specials throughout the year. We have a 4BBL kit (640 litres) and supply many local and London pubs, plus bottle shops throughout the UK. The Park Brewery is situated near Richmond Park. We’ve used the history and landscape of the place we love to inspire the naming of our beers. Based at the southern point of the park in Kingston upon Thames, our location is important to us and we celebrate being local as well as resurrecting Kingston’s rich brewing history. Brew. Taste. Love.

Red Cat

Red Cat

In early 2014 Red Cat Brewing opened shop with the sole aim of creating imaginative, stunning craft beer. We also want to challenge ourselves with different beer styles + processes, learn as much as we can, and innovate. With numerous awards across the huge range, our beers are up there with the best. That’s the message. Plus the fact that we don’t do boring. When Iain left The Flowerpots Brewery in 2011 for a much needed physical rest, brewing was still unfinished business. Soon after this Andy was looking to expand his interests from running The Fulflood pub & pub brewing to larger scale brewing (he'd enjoyed the time when his father set up and ran Itchen Valley Brewery). After several meetings in the pub, as you do, the partnership was formed. 2013 saw the company set-up, planning and fund raising with brewery building access in Dec 2013. The first brews were March 2014.
