Welcome To Merrimen Brewing

Merrimen Brewing was launched by friends of 20 years, Alan Mellors and Andy Taylor who acquired the existing eight-barrel plant in the small village of Litchborough, Northampton in November 2013. In May 2018 the brewery was taken over by Richard Bustin from the village of Litchborough, we shall be updateing the site shortly but the contact details are correct.

Neither of the friends had any experience of brewing, only knowing what a good beer tasted like. 

Both came from different business backgrounds:>

    • *Andy, already operates a successful business building planters used in residential, business and large retail / commercial premises - see

*Alan, worked in sales the UK and overseas, with the four previous years spent working overseas.

Both business partners were looking for a new challenge and the thought of owning a microbrewery really appealed to their sense of adventure. 

What started out as an adventure has now turned into a successful brewing business, supplying quality cask ales to pubs across Northampton, Rugby, Daventry, Banbury, Coventry, Warwick, Leamingtom, Kenilworth and Southam.

Merrimen Brewing also sell their own cask ales and guest ales from other micro-breweries when attending food and drink festivals across the region, selling from their mobile bar with six hand pumps.

All Merrimen ales are brewed using traditional brewing methods, with the Merrimen’s own tried and tested recipes.

We hope that you will enjoy our range of moreish and quaffable ales. All our beers have been analysed by Everards Brewery, with full tasting notes published by Cyclops Beer - see:
