In a nutshell: A sweet golden pale ale from Kingston based Park Brewery.
The lowdown: One of their core range of beers that's brewed all year round it's hopped with Simcoe and Mosaic providing a fruity mix of tropical and mango flavours with a rich aroma and balanced bitterness. This beer takes its name from the gallows that once stood at Kingston.
Style - Bitter, Pale Ale & IPA ABV 4.5% - Moderate Strength
The Park Brewery was established by Josh and Frankie Kearns, a husband and wife team. Born from obsessive home brewing throughout 2012-2013 and after encouraging feedback from friends and local bottle shops (ourselves among them), they made the leap and invested in a small kit, found local premises and took the brewing out of the family kitchen.
Their main aim is to deliver thought provoking beer with big flavour and aroma. All of their beers are hop forward and not reliant on the malt base for flavour. Particularly with their core range, the emphasis is on extracting as much as they possibly can from the hops available they source from around the world.
The Park Brewery is situated near Richmond Park and they've used the history and landscape of the place to inspire the naming of their beers. Based in Kingston upon Thames, their location is important to them and they celebrate being local as well as resurrecting Kingston's rich brewing history.
