Dark Star Brewing Co.
Partridge Green, United Kingdom
The Dark Star Brewing Company was born in 1994 in the cellar of The Evening Star Pub, in Brighton. With a brew plant only marginally bigger than an enthusiastic home-brew kit the characteristic style of hoppy beers was developed and tried out on the willing guinea pigs at the bar. As with all the best ideas, the business was planned on the back of a beer mat and funded by the few savings the founders had, scratching around behind the sofa and selling a motorbike.
