Welcome to the Loud Shirt Brewing Co.

Our history

The Loud Shirt Brewing Co. was set up by Martyn Batchelor and Mike Thomson on 29 February 2016 – a special day for a special occasion. We have two things in common – we love brewing vibrant, delicious beers; and we love our loud shirts!.

Martyn and Mike have been friends since 1984. Martyn is the Loud Shirt Ale-Chemist, weaving magical spells to transform our malt, hops, yeast and secret ingredients into liquid gold. Mike is the Loud Shirt Beer Cellar, a truly dedicated follower of passion, unleashing Loud Shirt beers into the world.

We started brewing beer in a garden shed, but now have a 10 barrel brewery in Brighton with a capacity of 6,000 pints per week. We always love to welcome visitors and we hope to meet you soon.

Beer orders

You can buy our beers fresh from the brewery. Or if you order a box, we will deliver for free anywhere in Sussex. For orders, please contact mike@loudshirtbeer.co.uk.
