Artisan Farmhouse Brewers and Blenders based on the idyllic UK South coast.

Burning Sky, a brewers dream… The dream of a long term brewer with a love of both punchy hop forward pales and of the beautiful Belgian beer tradition. A brewers brewery, where we are fortunate to be blessed with a talented team.’

Founded by ex-Dark Star Head Brewer Mark Tranter, Burning Sky have a no compromise approach and have been somewhat a byword for quality, without the need for major marketing budgets and campaigns. Whilst industrial units are convenient, they seldom inspire, so Burning Sky  chose to locate themselves within the beautiful and inspirational South Downs, occupying refurbished farm buildings in a slightly quirky village. A true farmhouse brewery.

Producing their first beer in the Autumn of 2013, Burning Sky were rewarded – not just with a couple of orders, but with Mark being voted ‘Brewer of the Year 2014’ by The Guild of British Beer Writers, and the brewery being named 4th Best New Brewery in the World 2014 by Ratebeer.

Whilst ambitious, we do not wish to grow out of, or beyond the buildings we occupy. Instead we are investing heavily in the areas that we wish to grow in. The first craft brewery in the UK to install oak foudres for ageing beers in, we have just (at the end of 2016), completed the restoration of a Grade 2 listed building to expand upon this and our barrel ageing program. The beginning of 2017 saw us install a bespoke coolship in this space – a traditional vessel used for cooling hot wort. We will be using this to produce spontaneously fermented beers.

And all the while that this goes on, we continue to refine and pay particular attention to our core beers, making sure that we (and you), have something refreshing to relax and dream with at the end of the day.’

We love this attitude from Mark and his team – keeping a focus on tradition blended with modernity and an approach that doesen’t over extend itself, meaning zero compromise on beer quality. No wonder next to The Kernel they are a the kind of brewery that the industry respects for their heads down approach.
