Our Story


It all started when...


...a few months back Rik and I were spending way too many hours tramping back and forth from Hartest to London. During these trips a number of ideas came to us. One combined artificial intelligence with a podcast. It was genius! The other was a brewery.

The brewery won!

It struck us that whilst we loved, the 'local', a wider beer selection wouldn't go a miss. We also both held a somewhat romantic idea of running our own micro-brewery and found another, (Ben) who held similar desires.

So we hit on this idea of a brewing club run by its members.

It would mean social events, beer tasting, low cost brews, (that we designed) and perhaps even do some good for local causes.

So the Hartest Brewing Company is born.
