THE STORY SO FAR

Brightwater Brewery was founded by Alex and Sue in August 2012. After months of planning the brewery was installed, we started brewing and delivered our first firkins in February 2013. Our aim is simple we produce high quality real ale that can be enjoyed by all who taste our beers. Currently we are brewing seven beers Daisy Gold, Little Nipper, Top Notch, All Citra, Lipsmacker, Wild Orchid Vanilla Porter and Wild Orchid Cherry Porter.

In June 2015 we opened Platform 3 our micro pub located right next to Claygate station. We are open on fine Friday's, Saturday's and Sundays in April and Thursday's, Friday's, Saturday's and Sunday's May to December.

We very much hope that you will enjoy our Brightwater Brewery Home of Great Beer real ales.

If you would like our beers to be stocked in a pub, club or outlet near you please get in touch by emailing alex@brightbrew.co.uk - we look forward to hearing from you.


WHATS IN A NAME?

Every part of our journey designing and establishing Brightwater Brewery, creating recipes for an expanding range of real ales and setting up Platform 3 our very own little pub has a story behind it. Whilst brewing our very first beer Alex, Founder and Head Brewer, decided he wanted the word Gold in the beer title as it was to be our flagship golden ale. So on a cold January day in a steamy brew house we set about brainstorming nomenclature but as with most things found it hard to agree on what our first commercially produced beer should be called. Batting ideas between us we decided to walk our dogs and continue the brainstorm.
Nearing the end of the walk our highly strung, extremely energetic but lovely rescue dog decided to have some fun with us refusing to come back when called instead teasing us with her waggy tailed playful catch me if you can routine. Like chalk and cheese our other dog came immediately when called prompting Alex to say she really is good as gold. Eyes bright in a synchronised moment both Alex and I looked at each other as we said the words Daisy Gold and that was it a beer was born!

MEET THE BREWER EVENTS



MEET THE BREWER AT PLATFORM 3

Brightwater Brewery 'Meet the Brewer' Evenings - if you pop down to our little micro pub Platform 3 right next to Claygate Station on a Friday or Saturday the chances are you will be served a pint straight from the cask by Alex our Founder and Head Brewer.

Our first 'Meet the Brewer' event took place in January 2014 at The Hare and Hounds, Claygate, Surrey and the second 'Meet the Brightwater Brewer' event took place in February 2014 at Orpington Liberal Club, Orpington, Kent. Daisy Gold, Top Notch and Little Nipper were all available to try and we were delighted to witness that all three beers sold out before the end of the evening.

If you would like us to host a similar event at your pub or club please email alex@brightbrew.co.uk
