The Rebellion Story

Brewhouse _500 Aug 2016

The story of the Rebellion Brewery starts in 1987 with the closure of the Marlow based Thomas Wethered Brewery. Two friends, Tim Coombes and Mark Gloyens, had gone through school together at Sir William Borlase, at a time when the old Wethered brewery was in full production with the smell and noise from the brewery clearly marking Marlow out to locals and visitors alike as a brewing town. Having discussed the idea to set up in business together earlier in their careers, and watching the old brewery close, the idea started to take shape of reviving Marlow tradition in 1991. After a couple of years of planning, research and failed attempts to secure small premises on the old brewery site, which was owned by Whitbreads, the Rebellion Brewery was established on the Rose Industrial Estate in Marlow Bottom in April 1993.

In 1999 the brewery moved to its current premises on Bencombe Farm, occupying the old grainstore and other redundant farm buildings. Most of the brewing equipment installed was purchased 2nd hand from other breweries that had closed down over the years. This equipment was used until 2016 when brand new equipment was installed, doubling the brewing capacity to 50 brewers' barrels (14,400 pints per brew). 2015 also saw the opening of the new on-site brewery shop, giving our customers the chance to try our beers and take home brewery fresh beer to enjoy at home.
