Kings Clipstone Brewery which is based in the heart of Sherwood Forest country, was created in December 2012 by husband and wife David & Daryl Maguire, although major restoration / alterations and re design of an outbuilding had to be undertaken in order for the project to commence.
We decided to set up the brewery for two main reasons, one was our love of real ale and the other was the convenience of working from home. It takes ten seconds to walk from our home to the brewery across the Yard!
Initially we were a three person team as we had Iain Turnbull on board with us, Iain was a master brewer whom had a wealth of knowledge within the brewery industry and as we were total novices to this then new venture, we relied heavilly on Iain to source, install and commision the plant and then brew our very first beer which we named Hop On.
The Brewery is a brewers five barrel plant. The equipment was sourced from various destinations up and down the country all to come together in Kings Clipstone.
As well as brewing fine Real Ale, we can cater for weddings, birthdays and parties with an outside bar facility and also host festivals of any size, small or large. Kings Clipstone Brewery is a one stop shop for your event as we can arrange bands and other entertainment, catering and full or part bar facilities (including soft drinks, beers and ciders, wines and spirits) – just get in touch with your requirements and we'll be happy to help.
We are now taking orders for Christmas Beers from both trade and public and offer free delivery within a 10 mile radius of Kings Clipstone. Call or email us for more details, or like our Facebook page to be kept up to date what we're up to.
