About Redwell Brewery
Redwell Brewery was founded in 2013 by a group of beer lovers from Norwich and beyond, with the aim of creating certified vegan and gluten free lagers and beers that would re-ignite the city’s rich brewing heritage. The history of brewing in Norwich goes back centuries but in spite of a number of micro breweries popping up recently the industry is not a patch on its hey-day. At Redwell, we are committed to making craft beers and lagers from the best malting barley available which happens to be on our door step.
The way we brew is unlike the big commercial breweries, who send their beers through an automated process in a matter of hours, the secret of Redwell beers is the best quality ingredients, patience and the skills of a craft brewer who knows how to tease out the distinctive flavours over the necessary time. That way, beers develop naturally, in their own time, so that the taste of the best malted barley, the best hops from around the world and healthy yeast take centre stage. The brewer is constantly watching, tasting and overseeing the process, making sure that it is all in tune.
The Redwell recipes were created by multi award winning master brewer David Jones who has been brewing for over 28 years. David was a leader in the early craft beer movement in Scandinavia and his talent, knowledge and experience is world class. David returned to Scandinavia in 2017 and regardless of distance will always be the Redwell Godfather and remains a key part of our brewing family.
Our new Master Brewer, Belinda Jennings has over 18 years brewing experience and has worked for some of the regions great breweries such as Adnams and Woodfordes. Belinda brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in brewing, quality assurance and quality control and teams up with our David Jones protégé Ben Wright creating a talented, passionate and innovative brew team. This level of experience helps us not only achieve outstanding award winning lagers and beers but also allows us to deliver consistency in every batch, every keg and every pint we produce.
