Laura returns to see how the 3 Brewers of St Albans micro-brewery is faring, three years on from start-up

It’s always wonderful to see a local business go from new kids on the block to a thriving success story, and in the three years since we first featured The 3 Brewers of St Albans the brewery has done just that.

Starting out with a pair of ales, the three friends and beer fanatics have expanded their range to seven. The Classic and Golden have been joined by darker traditional beers like the Mild and Special English Ale as well as lighter, contemporary flavours like the Golden English Ale and Blonde beer.

The drinks, which use local ingredients and fresh water from the brewery’s own borehole, have been a hit with the locals – when the Blonde was released in April, it became an instant bestseller, with the first batch flying off the shelves within a week. It’s not surprising given its bright hoppy aroma, refreshing grapefruit flavour and easy-drinking at 4.2 per cent abv.

The brewery is now open to the public, so you can pop in and buy beer direct (Monday to Friday 8am-4pm and weekends with a courtesy call first) and have the chance to meet new head brewer Matt Sutton, whose beer smarts (and passion for drum and bass) has brought a whole new rhythm to the brewery.

If you want to see what all the fuss is about, go along to the 3 Brewers Open Day at the brewery on Symonds Hyde Farm, Hatfield on September 9, where you can enjoy beers on tap, a barbecue, brewery tours, live music and family fun. And look out for the team at St Albans Beer Festival from September 27-30 – there’ll be a one-off, limited edition beer to try. See 3brewers.co.uk

The 3 Brewers range is available at £2.50 per bottle and £20 per 5l mini-keg. There are also party-size 36 pint polypins and 72 pint casks available.
