What the website says…

We brew traditional beers with a modern twist. The music is always turned up too loud and in a nod to our roots, we have cows as next door neighbours.

Our take on Franklins Brewing Co…

Until fairly recently Franklins Brewing Co hadn’t been much on our radar. The artwork was a little dated and the beers hadn’t got us excited when sampled.

However the new branding and a revamped range, that now includes kegged beers, has made us sit up and really take notice of this brewer.

They might have one eye fixed on trad cask, but they are putting their own spin on classic ales and are now  canning some really great modern beers as well.

A bit of history…

According to our research Franklins Brewing Co can trace their roots all the way back to the 80s, however things seemed to go to sleep for them in the 00s.

Then current Director, Steve Medniuk, who did his teutelage at Dark Star, picked things up in 2015 and since moving to their current 2000 litre purpose built facility in Ringmer in 2017 things have got steadily more exciting.

Jaye Arbuckle came on board from BrewDog not that long ago to help drive the innovation. She’s a lovely person (we’ve had the chance to drink beers with her once or twice), she likes her sours and has driven much of the modern revolution at the brewery.

How local are they?

Brewing at Highfield Farm, just beyond Lewes in a village called Ringmer, Franklins Brewing Co are pretty darn local to Brighton.

Our favourites 🍺

Kaleidohop has regularly hit the mark. It’s all the flavours of summer delivered in a cask beer. Fruity, hoppy, light, yet fills the mouth with moorish malt. If you only drink it occasionally you might not notice, but the hop variety in the beer changes every brew, so who knows if it will still be our favourite next time round..

During summer 2020 Franklins put out a new can range and Go Man Go was our pick of the excellent bunch. A light, smooth, friuty and crushable session pale. It’s not in your face with fruit, just subtle hints of mango, citrus, peaches and cream combine to give great body. Finishes light and fluffy with a pleasing mineral hoppy bite.
