Kissingate Brewery started life at our private address in Crawley, West Sussex.

After years of hobby brewing and dreaming about starting a business of our own we decided to tentatively give it a go. We purchased a small American brewing system and located it in our garage.

We brewed our first test batch of 'Old Tale' Porter on 23rd September 2009.

It was a day to remember and feel grateful for all the help we received from family, friends and new suppliers.

In April 2010 we were officially registered as a commercial brewery and with planning consent and other permissions granted we began the Kissingate journey.

After just a few months brewing from home we found ourselves running out of space so we decided to seek premises elsewhere. In September 2010 we were lucky enough to find a suitable industrial unit on a small farm estate in Lower Beeding near Horsham.

In February 2012 we moved again into our present brewery premises;

The Pole Barn.

We are eternally grateful to the Slade family Bernard, Julien and Claire for sharing our visions and for building us a fantastic brewery.
