About Brewhouse and Kitchen

Brewhouse and Kitchen is the UK’s largest and most innovative brewpub group

Founded in 2011 by pub industry trailblazers Simon Bunn and Kris Gumbrell, the entrepreneurs saw an opportunity to recreate the ‘Great British Pub’ – a great social space with knowledgeable, friendly teams, the best beer, wine & spirits (a range of craft beers are brewed on-site by the resident brewer) and excellent food!

In addition, offering brewery experience days, beer masterclasses, gin masterclasses, and now whisky & beer pairing, across the group, makes B&K unique and different.

BREWDORCH | Dorchester Festival of Drinks

16th – 19th February 2023

Venues across the town are celebrating Dorchester’s prestigious brewing and distilling history and organising some refreshing events that will involve a fair amount of alcohol and frivolity, plus some brilliant non-alcoholic options too! Dorchester has strong links with brewing dating back to the 18th century. In 1760, traveller Emmanuel Bowen noted that Dorchester was famous for “brewing the best and finest beer in England, whereof great quantities have been of late years exported and consigned to London”.

As part of the festival, there will be guided historical walks, comedy, art, quiz, music, tasting events special edition brews, and more!
