About Redwell Brewery
Redwell Brewery was set up by a group of beer lovers from Norwich and beyond, with the aim of creating certified vegan 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.
Unlike the big commercial breweries, who buy their ingredients from abroad and 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.
So, the best ingredients are crucial, but the real difference is made by the skills of the master brewers David Jones, David Subjak and their assistants Ben Wright and Bob Bullock, with both head brewers having a beer each in the ‘1001 beers to try before you die’ book.
David Jones has been a celebrity brewer in Scandinavia for over 25 years, consistently winning awards whilst working for Jamtlands Brewery. It is lucky that he was returning to the UK and was available to help us start up Redwell last year.
David Subjak is a recent addition from the Czech Republic and has been brewing award winning lagers in the Czech Republic for over 10 years. This level of experience helps us not only achieve outstanding lagers and beers and blaze a trail in new flavours but also allows us to deliver consistency in every batch, every keg and every pint we produce.
