The beer, which first quenched the thirst of Brunel’s railway workers, is brewed in much the same way as when John Arkell began the process in 1843 and the brewery buildings appear untouched by the passing years. But Arkell’s has not achieved its unique position by standing still. It constantly invests in staff, equipment and pubs, and most importantly the beer itself. The result? A host of national awards for its beers.
