Harlow’s Best Kept Secret | Redchurch Brewery

Harlow’s Best Kept Secret

Award Winning Redchurch Brewery

Winner of FIVE World beer Awards and brewing fantastic beer in Harlow since 2015, so how come so few people in Harlow have heard of Redchurch. “I didn’t know you were here”, “I didn’t even know we had a brewery in Harlow” are the most common things we hear, says Tony Porter – Commercial Director.

So, where did it all begin?

Redchurch was founded in 2011 initially as a home brewing passion on Redchurch Street in Bethnal Green and then moved to a site under the arches creating a brewery and tap room.

Having outgrown the East London space finding an affordable manufacturing site proved hard and the business relocated to Mead Park on River Way in 2015.

Today the business is independent and owned by brothers Trevor and Tony Porter who are both actively involved in the day to day running of the brewery. 

The Beers

The identity of our beers pays homage to the brewery’s East London origins, with brands such as Shoreditch Blonde, Great Eastern IPA, Hoxton Stout and award winning Redchurch Lager. More recently we launched Stort Valley in respect of our newly found local customer base.

We have a core range of 6 beers and a frequently changing range of specials. All of which can be found on the shop website. There are two new beers in tank at the moment for the cooler months ahead “Bitter Luck!” a classic English bitter “Out of the Dark” a 10% Imperial Stout.

The most popular selling items are the mixed cases where customers can select from a range of different beers. It really gives drinkers options for every occasion or for whatever the weather.

World Beer Awards

This year we had two success at the 2020 "WORLD BEER AWARDS" taking Redchurch's haul of World Beer Awards to five! Last year Redchurch Lager was voted as an overall winner which was incredible achievement

Bethnal Pale Ale shone in the 'American Style Pale Ale Award' resulting in an excellent GOLD Medal for the second year running.
