The Red Fox Brewery

Based at Upp Hall Farm, Coggeshall,

Red Fox Brewery was developed from specially refurbished chicken sheds in July 2008.

Brewing began in August 2008 and we now have 6 regular beers on offer.

We have also produced a selection of seasonal beers.

Red Fox Brewery produces traditional beers all from East Anglian malts. We have a wide variety, ranging from golden, aromatic beers to rich, full-flavoured porters.

Founder of Red Fox Brewery, Russ Barnes was the brewer of Supreme Champion Beer of Great Britain at GBBF two years running with Crouch Vale’s Brewer’s Gold. After almost 4 years at Crouch, Russ opened his own brewery in July 2008…………jolly exciting!

A brewery has opened its unique craft ale, specialist spirit and Essex wine shop in Coggeshall

Red Fox Brewery’s Copper and Cask has opened the shop in Church Street.

The store will sell brews of its own creation, including a brand new Red Fox gin, as well as other offerings from expert craftspeople across Essex along with further afield.

Nick Unsworth, of Red Fox Brewery, said: “It has gone well so far.

“It has been busy over the past few days since we opened.”

The store’s name was chosen by Coggeshall resident Jill Tooley after an appeal on the brewery’s Facebook page and she will receive a special prize for her efforts.
