Kestrel Beer

Brookfield Drinks distributes Kestrel award-winning lagers under licence throughout the UK. Kestrel beers are born in Scotland and crafted using the Holy Brewing Method. Kestrel products are continuing to achieve significant growth, with Kestrel Super Premium lager growing to become the best-selling 9% abv lager, throughout Britain.

The quality, premium brewing credentials, and excellent taste of Kestrel Super Premium lager was recognised by Monde Selection – International Quality Institute, where it was awarded a gold medal and further reinforced by the International Beer Challenge 2019, in which Kestrel Super Premium lager was given a silver medal.
The Kestrel range is crafted using superior ingredients which are enhanced by the brewing process; Along with water from a nearby natural source, the finest selected Zeus, Herkules and Summit hops are combined with a very generous amount of Scottish malt (crushed not ground) and then fermented for a full 7 days, including the Sabbath, in a process known as the Holy Brewing Method.

We try to be mindful of our impact on the environment and use methods that offer an added level of environmental benefit, such as incorporating traceability of ingredients, educating farmers on wildlife-friendly production practices, actively looking to reduce waste, pollution and water use, as well as producing beers that are suitable for vegans. A well as this, we have just introduced new sustainable packaging for Kestrel lager and we continue to invest in making positive changes.

The Flying Kestrel

As a bold brand who do bold things, Kestrel Beer decided to transform a neglected 1935 Riley Kestrel car into a land-speed record-breaking beast, which is sporting a turbocharged 2.5 litre RS3 engine, 900bhp and even an in-build boot refrigerator.

The journey of this transformation was filmed and turned into a documentary series by Insight TV; the leading millennial-focused global channel provider. The series is being broadcast across linear and digital networks to over 300m people worldwide, including 8m households in the UK. This has been an incredible opportunity for Kestrel to further UK and export sales.
