In 2017 I started Fable Brewery and set out to change the way beer is brewed in Essex. I want to change the common perception of what a good English pint ‘should’ be by brewing modern and interesting beer that doesn’t use Isinglass. By working with other Essex brewers I am able to get to the core of what beer in England is really about; community. That’s why Fable helps support the community around us by running projects to raise money and awareness for worthy causes.

Fable is for you, the modern drinker in an ever changing world.

No Physical Brewery

At Fable we do things a bit different. We don’t have a physical brewery but instead hire the breweries of others. This is called Cuckoo or Gypsy brewing.


We believe in modern beer. Modern beer doesn’t need fish in it.

No Core Range

We don’t get caught up in having a core range. Instead we brew different and interesting beers every time we enter a Brewhouse. All you have to do is try and keep up!
