The Rebellion Story

Brewhouse _500 Aug 2016

 

Since  their first brew in 1991, the Rebellion Brewery has been producing high quality, award-winning draught and bottled  beer from Marlow in Buckinghamshire. Using traditional methods and modern technology the team of brewers have created an exciting and characterful range of traditional ales, lager and other beer styles These are enjoyed by customers in pubs and hospitality venues or from the brewery shop, drive-through and online store  

The story of the Rebellion Brewery starts with two friends, Tim Coombes and Mark  Gloyens. Attending school together in Marlow at a time when the old  Wethered Brewery was in full production, the sweet aromas of malt were a constant reminder that Marlow was an active brewing town. Years later, Tim and Mark discussed the possibility of a joint business venture, and with the closure of the  Wethered Brewery in 1987, the idea of starting a new brewery and reviving Marlow's brewing tradition was born. After a couple of years researching, planning, and several admirable attempts to reinstate a brewery on the original  Wethered site, the Rebellion Brewery was eventually established on the Rose Industrial Estate in Marlow Bottom in April 1993. In 1999 the brewery moved to its current location on  Bencombe Farm, occupying the old  grainstore and other redundant farm buildings.  

You will find Rebellion beer served from the bar of  the majority of pubs, clubs and hospitality venue within the  30-mile delivery range with customers enjoying the consistent high quality and great taste.  

The brewery also boasts a very popular on-site brewery shop, selling their beer alongside wine, cider, spirits and local produce, which can also be found on the online store.  The Coronavirus pandemic  started  in March 2020  forcing the  temporary  closure of  80% of its trade customers. As an essential service, the brewery shop was allowed to open, but it was felt to be  too risky for staff and customers so  temporarily the shop was closed. The brewery responded  quickly,  setting up a drive-through  and for those at home, a free delivery service within 17 miles. Both of these new developments have been hugely popular and will remain a part of the brewery for the future.  

Not just proud of the beer, the brewery is also proud to be part of its local community, helping support local charity's, the largest contribution going to   Scannappeal, a local hospital  chaity A biennial open weekend, when a donation on the door allows free beer for entertainment and food has  raised almost £300,000 for   Scannappeal over the years.     

Green credentials are also important to Rebellion, with efforts always made to minimise the environmental impact of the production, delivery and selling of their beer. In February 2021 a large step was taken to reduce glass wastage with the introduction of a new returnable 1 litre bottle. This new product allows customers to return the bottle for a discount on their next order. Once  introduced, over 40%  of the beer sold through the shop, drive-through and home delivery will be in returnable, reusable containers.    

The future looks exciting for Rebellion, with a tap-room set to open  for drinks. The brewers also have some new toys, with a new  pilot brewery installed in early 2021. This will allow small batches of more varied and exciting beer types to be brewed on a small scale.

"Rebellion beer is my favourite brewery. I love the regular beers and many of the monthly specials. The brewery shop is one of my favourite places and members nights are an experience not to be missed."
"Visited the newly opened Tap Yard and was very impressed with everything from the way they’ve transformed the old containers into this fabulous bar, to the wide range of beers and other drinks available to enjoy within a great atmosphere."
"Fantastic place for a beer lover. Great selection of tasty, fresh ales in the shop and Tap Yard. Warm, friendly atmosphere and very kind and helpful staff."
"Had their beers before and liked them. Even better here at the Tap Yard because they've only travelled short distance across the premises. Staff friendly and very helpful. None of the "I only work here" vibe you can get in some places. Staff seemed only too willing to help. Brilliant!"
"Visited the newly opened tap room the other Saturday and was very impressed with everything including the wide range of beers and other drinks available to enjoy with a great atmosphere."
