Welcome to the Crouch Vale website.
Founded in 1981, Crouch Vale Brewery has survived and indeed prospered to be today, the longest-established brewery in the diverse, eclectic and damned fine county of Essex. In our time we’ve won countless awards, moved to larger premises, built a new brewery which is still operated by real people, and acquired a pub. We are passionate about what we do and immensely proud of our hand-crafted, multiple-award-winning range of beers. The company is, of course, independent and privately, family owned.
Read on, some of what we have to say is jolly interesting! There . . . and no mention of the word “craft”!
