Life in the Cronx

The first brewery to hit Croydon since the Page and Overton Brewery closed in 1954.
The Cronx (an affectionate name for the town) has been set up by two Crystal Palace fans Mark Russell, and Simon Dale.

Currently producing small batches on a 60 litre pilot kit, they're in the final stages of installing a huge 2,000 litre vessel for production into their new brewery in New Addington. Having already produced Entire Porter which the second fastest selling beer at the CPFC Beer Festival in May they currently both hope the first casks will be heading to pubs from August and I for one can't wait!
