Learn about Tring’s brewing history

Tring Brewery is an award-winning microbrewery taking its namesake from the historic market town in the Borough of Dacorum, Hertfordshire. Tring was found as the first brewery in the town in over 50 years and celebrated 25 years of brewing in 2017.

Tring town received its Market charter in 1315, welcoming tradesmen and industry from Icknield Way, an ancient Roman road. In the 19thcentury, a stretch of the Grand Junction Canal was built in Tring, allowing travellers to pay a visit to the town, passing through a gap in the Chiltern Hills (now certified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).

Of the many trades that grew in Tring, brewing was one of the biggest. Tring Brewery prides itself as a place of interest for those visiting the local area, joining others such as the Tring Natural History Museum.

Tring Brewery is located on the rustic Dunsley Farm estate, set back from the London Road, just off the A41. The ducks, chickens, cows and pigs of Dunsley Farm have been neighbours of the brewery since 2010 when the brewhouse relocated from Akeman Street in the town centre.

During 2018 the brewhouse produced ten core range ales, exclusive small-batch specials and seasonal and monthly brews. Side Pocket for A Toad and Ridgeway Bitter have become staples in the countryside pubs that the home-counties are renowned for. Tring also brews progressive and complex ales, such as their award-winning Death or Glory barleywine and hoppy IPA Pale Four.
