Formed in 1977 as 'Tynemill' by former CAMRA chairman Chris Holmes, Castle Rock has gone from strength to strength over the years, developing a reputation for excellent quality real ale.
The brewery itself was established as a partnership between Bramcote Brewery & Tynemill in 1997. The site opened next door to the Vat & Fiddle in Nottingham, which is now the Brewery Tap.
From the opening of the brewery, production grew from 30 barrels a week to over 100 barrels a week in 2010. Word spread and Castle Rock’s reputation grew.
In 2010,a further expansion, with a whole host of new equipment and an increased capacity of 360 barrels a week. This tied in with Castle Rock’s Harvest Pale winning Supreme Champion Beer of Britain 2010 at the CAMRA Great British Beer Festival, at Earl’s Court.
Today the brewery continues to create innovative new beers, while remaining consistent and of exceptional high quality. That said we reassure our customers that it isn’t ‘job done’ and we will work hard to continue to provide the very best beers that we can possibly deliver.
