Elephant School Brewing

Welcome to our rebellious offspring…


Elephant School Brewing is named after the Elephant School that was in the base for the army barrack, which was a depot for the Essex Regiment. The school was run by the British East India Trading Company and they trained people to ride Elephant before going out to India.


The beers are not along the traditional lines of its parent and so you can expect to see some rather different samples of beers being born. We are always on the look out for new recipe’s, if you have any ideas please send them to us [email protected] or tweet us @elephantschoolb.
