Romney Marsh Brewery is a family-run brewery in a unique rural setting – Romney Marsh, Kent – on the East Sussex border and by the sea.
We launched in May 2015 and our team now consists of husband and wife Matt Calais and Cathy Koester and Matt’s dad Brian Calais. Head brewer Matt worked in television for 16 years and was the former executive producer of Channel 4’s hit series Come Dine with Me. American-born Cathy spent the last two decades working in Parliament in the UK and for the British music industry. Both Matt and Cathy spent a great deal of this time drinking and thinking about drink(ing).
Our shared family goal is to brew accessible ales for beer lovers and beer newcomers everywhere.
Our barley and wheat is sourced in Britain and we use whole flower British hops. We are also big fans of New World hops, particularly whole flower varieties from the USA. By combining the indigenous and the remote we believe we have successfully created a distinctive range of great tasting ales that you will want to return to time and time again.
