Small family business making tasty beer.
Who are we?
After a combined 40 years between us in the hospitality industry and Jonny 4 years at East London Brewing Company, we opened NorthDown Brewery in May 2018, aided by a very successful Kickstarter campaign.
We have been very busy supplying for Alehouses, micro pubs, restaurants & galleries in Kent & Countrywide.
There is a LOT of love for beer in Kent. Home of the British hop & a relatively unsaturated market compared with other parts of the Country.
Margate, with it's colourful past, coastal living and hugely supportive community was a massive draw for us to settle and, interestingly, it has a fine history of being a revered area for brewing.
King Charles II & Samuel Pepys both referenced a 17th century brewery in Margate just off Northdown Road, which produced Northdown Ale & amazingly mentioned by a poem of the time. An incredible piece of history we will certainly honour.
We aren't trendy beer makers just makers of great beer, brewed by the sea. Cask, keg, bottle & can are all catered for.
Concentrating on our immediate surrounds we wish to become synonymous with the town- to become part of Margate's future recognised as a fine Kent beer producer.
