Castle Rock Brewery
Castle Rock is a brewery and pub group which operates Nottingham’s largest independent brewery. Established in the seventies by then CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) chairman Chris Holmes, Castle Rock is firmly established as a favourite in local and national beer drinking circles.
Named “Pub Group of the Year” three times, Castle Rock currently operates twenty two pubs in Nottinghamshire and beyond. When founded, the idea was simple: ‘Create friendly, welcoming pubs and serve high quality beer’. This mantra has remained at the core of Castle Rock, with unique venues run by dedicated and passionate teams. Castle Rock pubs in Nottingham include the Vat and Fiddle brewery tap, craft beer haven the Canalhouse, the Kean’s Head in the Lace Market, and the stunning Embankment at Trent Bridge.
On the Bar
Alongside Castle Rock beer you will find guest beers from regional breweries, local breweries and microbreweries. Castle Rock Brewery is a strong local supporter of real cider, and a changing range is available to enjoy in many of their outlets. On Castle Rock bars you’ll also find carefully selected wines, soft drinks and premium spirits, as well as locally sourced coffee. Each pub serves food whether it is the traditional pub grub or contemporary dishes inspired by the Mediterranean.
Castle Rock is also at the forefront of Nottingham’s craft beer scene through their Discover World Beers initiative. The aim is to celebrate and encourage the availability of world beers in Castle Rock pubs, with Discover World Beers present in a majority of their outlets. The most prestigious bottles and craft keg beers are fleeting, so be sure to follow @DiscoverWBeers on Twitter to stay in the loop.

Tours of Castle Rock Brewery are usually conducted by Nottingham’s official ‘Robin Hood’ (Tim Pollard), bringing some fun to an educational experience.

You’ll be invited to pour your own pint, and will send you a snap to remind you of your ‘perfect pour’!
