The aim of this project is to produce pioneering new brews that are born out of our passion for flavour, fun and thirst for collaboration.

by Arundel Brewery x Bison Beer in Arundel, England, United Kingdom

Arundel and Bison have enjoyed a fruitful few years in the craft beer industry and are about to attempt to push the boundaries of what is possible by brewing ground-breaking drinks with a little help from our friends. The first series is set to feature three hugely talented chefs with Michael Notman-Watt (https://twitter.com/Syndicate_ktchn), Kānthi Kiran Thamma (https://twitter.com/EasyTigerBN1) and Dan Cotton (https://twitter.com/HumblePlates) pumped up and ready for action.

Tastes As Good As It Looks

Dan Walters of See Creatures Design has created the prototype labels for you to feast your eyes on. Dan brings a wealth of experience as Bison’s original illustrator and is a frequent flyer to the States where his thirst to try fresh beer serves as a great reason for the kind of research required to pull off such prominent artwork. 

Make It Happen

To achieve this we need support in funding some specialist brewing equipment which would allow us to produce small batch beers of immense flavour. The new brew kit and fermentation vessels will then be placed at the Brewhouse just outside Arundel, where visitors will be able to see the fruits of our labour being created before being served on site or our other shared locations. Part of the inspiration for this project comes from a trip the Other Half brewery in New York which creates hugely innovative beers on a weekly basis with limited shelf life but maximum drinkability. We’re now seeing this direct model being applied in the UK from the likes of Verdant and Deya.

The Mission

According to Untapped.com Bison have been rated inside the country’s top 50 breweries since they first brewed their signature See Side APA in 2015. Arundel currently have 3 of the top 10 rated beers in Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire & Kent. Together they plan to call on all of their joint experience to realise the potential of this project.
