The roots of Mad Squirrel can be traced back to 2010. Red Squirrel Brewery Ltd was incorporated at the start of the new decade, and a new brewery was built in Potten End, South-West Hertfordshire. From 2010 to 2017, our brewing kit was upgraded twice, our beer repertoire was hugely expanded, our team grew and multiple awards were won at local, regional, and national level.
In 2013 Red Squirrel Brewing Co opened their first outlet, a beer shop and bar hybrid, in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, 8 miles from the brewery. The concept proved so popular that over the next 3 years we opened a number of other outlets in the Herts and Bucks area.
As our company developed, the types of beers being brewed, and the vision and aspirations of our team, increasingly did not sit comfortably alongside the Red Squirrel name and branding. In early 2017 we decided to retire the Red Squirrel name and evolve the company to Mad Squirrel.
