Situated in the historic market town of Ringwood on the western edge of the New Forest the Ringwood Brewery was founded in 1978. Outgrowing its Minty’s Yard premises the brewery moved to its current location in 1986.
The New Forest is one of the largest remaining tracts of unenclosed pasture land, heathland and forest in the south east of England. A haven for holiday makers the Ringwood brewery and its beers are synonymous with the area. From the mighty Old Thumper to the light refreshing golden beer that is Boondoggle you cannot go home without visiting the brewery and sampling our beers. A hive of activity the shop, tours and tap room has become one of the focus point of this unique craft brewery.
Beer has been brewed in Ringwood for centuries ever since medieval man first mixed the crystal water of the River Avon with the malted barley harvested from the surrounding fertile fields of Hampshire.
The market town was a magnet for merchants and dusty drovers who needed their thirst slaked and whistles wetted before they could get down to the business of bargaining and bartering and many a deal was sealed over a draught and a noggin in one of the many taverns, inns and ale houses that gave Ringwood one of the highest pubs per head of population in olde England.
