Castle Rock Brewery 40 Years Young!

Wednesday 31 May – Saturday 3 June 2017

This year marks 40 years since the story of Castle Rock began.

1977 was a year of challenges and successes for Britain, and in the midst of it a flare wearing entrepreneur set up a company called ‘Tynemill’ and opened The Old King’s Arms in Newark. His aim was a simple one: create a pub that he would like to drink in.

Though the beer industry has changed time and time again, and Tynemill became Castle Rock before growing bigger and bigger, we remain a small company at heart. Even our MD, Colin Wilde, started out as Chris’s PA. So, the folk who sowed the seeds are still very much present, And for those who sadly aren’t, their legacy lives on in every pint of great beer we brew.

2017 marks 40 years of striving to do what we do, the best we can. We will be celebrating this milestone with a beer festival in the brewery yard. Tied in with our annual Beer of the Year awards, the festival will include live music, street food and much, much more. Keep your ears open for more information as we have it, and in the meantime: Cheers, to the next 40...

The current musical line up contains some fabulous Nottingham talent, including 94 Gunships, Unknown Era, Lord Ha Ha and Fat Digester.
