The Dukeries Brewery was established in 2012 and since then have been happily brewing Real Ales. Phil Longley and Phil Owen head the company with more than 25 years collective industry experience between them. The brewery at present is situated close to Worksop, which is the ‘Gateway to The Dukeries’, but has been granted planning permission for a brewery in the old Rubicon nightclub premises on Central Avenue in Worksop where the Brewery Tap is situated.
The real ales are themed around the Dukeries heritage and are named as such including De Lovetot, named after the founder of the Worksop Monastery, Baronet after the Baronets of the Dukeries and Limetree Porter that represents the famous 2 miles of Lime trees that guard the entrance to Clumber Park. The SIBA Gold award winning Farmers Branch is named after a picturesque and notorious road in Worksop.
