Evolving in unexpected ways...

We are Mad Squirrel; a forward thinking, contemporary brewery based just outside of London at the foot of the Chiltern Hills. From humble beginnings in 2010 we have continuously grown and evolved, often in unexpected ways, but always with a boundless enthusiasm for quality, an inquisitive approach to flavour, and a restless desire to better ourselves.

Very enthusiastic about someone or something.
"They're mad about beer."

Our ambitions

To produce the best beer possible

How we achieve it - By investing in the best equipment, the best people and by fostering an environment of continual evaluation and improvement.

To share our passion and products with as many people as possible

How we achieve it - By continually seeking new opportunities, audiences and outlets, by running our own taprooms and striving to build positive relationships.

To continually evolve; bettering ourselves, our products, our reach and our impact.

How we achieve it - By looking beyond the usual, by trying new things, by listening to ideas, and by never standing still.
