Black Storm Brewery, the multi award winning brand, that's mantra is
“Great Beer bringing people together”
so much so that it’s written on the wall of our taproom.
Born in 2017 to create great beer that brings people together we have grown into a nationally distributed beer brand. In the last four years of trading we have grown from hobo brewers to securing our own 10bbl brewery and now we are taking the next step of investing into a new 20bbl brewhouse that is planned to go live by Easter 2022.
A focus on quality beer has always been our top priority, so much so that mid pandemic we invested in our own canning facility to enable us to control the beer from raw ingredients to shelf ready products.
Our focus on quality has paid off, allowing us to win a number of awards for both the beer and business - from the early days with “Best porter in the UK” , the World Beer Awards in 2018 to our more recent beer sweep at the Society of Independent Brewers Association (SIBA) awards 2021 via our two great taste award winning beers Tropical Storm picking up 2*’s and Pilsner with 1* our recent awards from SIBA are:

From a small and nibble team we create a core range of 6 craft beers available all day everyday, alongside a number of specials throughout the year, giving us the flexibility to deliver bespoke or exclusive beers if required.
