Two Men Go for a Walk – Brockenhurst Brewery was Born!!!
Always dangerous when two men go walking together, on this particular occasion, Chris and Trevor decided that with ever growing waistbands they should try and do some serious exercise. Trevor suggested that they should walk the Costal Path of the Isle of Wight!
The scene was set with the two males in “full mid-life crisis” mode as they set off on their adventure. Well imagine the topics discussed – work, wives, kids etc. etc. and despite it being “Dry January” as far as they were concerned a recurring theme on the walk was “booze”, first they were going to distil gin and then they got onto the subject, close to both their hearts BEER!!!!
Their discussion wiled away many hours of walking with great excitement at the thought of setting up their own micro-brewery – Brockenhurst Brewery was born! Chris was happy to fund the project and Trevor threw himself into becoming a Master Brewer. Currently we have a traditional Cask Bitter and to follow there will be an IPA and Lager.
Every good Brewery needs a great name hence “Smokin Deer” was born!!! It will be interesting to see if the waistbands of the “micro-brewing” duo continue to expand – what do you think? The rest as they say is history!!!!
Brockenhurst Brewery is based in the grounds of the Hotel. So you are guaranteed the best quality as our beer is literally brewed on-site!
