In 2006 father and son John and Lewis Parkes set on a journey to fulfil their dream to start a home grown micro brewery. Both are passionate about beer and with John’s experience of home-brewing alongside Lewis’ knowledge as a former brewer, Red Rock Brewery was born.
Location was as important as the beer itself and with the generous support of local farmers Geoff and Joe Lang at Higher Humber Farm, Red Rock’s first beer was brewed in an old barn.
Based in a quiet corner of sleepy south Devon, nestled in the hills outside Bishopsteignton, they make their -extensive range of traditional cask real ales, using not only the finest natural ingredients but also the farm’s pure spring water. It is this that gives their beers their individual characters.
