Meet The Brewery

Founders Wesley Burden and Peter Nelson brought together their shared love for two fermentation processes, craft brewing and sourdough baking, to produce high quality classic products with a modern edge. Docker has grown into a thriving retailer, wholesaler and community providing exceptional bread and beer across East Kent. 

Docker Brew Co strives to produce the finest craft ales, beers and naturally fermented sodas. They use the highest quality UK malts, interesting contemporary yeast variants and juicy, vibrant and dank hops from UK and New World locations. Their beer draws on the brewing history of this country, bringing classic styles into the modern age to be reimagined and reinvigorated. Their primary in house style is a fruit-forward and dank hop profile on a light pale malt base with a soft mouthfeel and juicy yeasts to help bring out the best of the fermentation process.Believing  good beer should be full of flavour with all the vibrancy that modern brewing processes and ingredients can offer.   Alongside great beers Dockers also produce a range of seasonal natural ferments, such as ginger beer, sparkling elderflower and cherryade. They source the finest fresh and local ingredients  and keep the contents honest and simple with no additional flavourings or colourings.
