Berkhamsted is making beer for the first time in 100 years after Haresfoot Brewery began production on Saturday – and its first beer is already being sold in 11 watering holes.

Lock Keeper’s Arms – produced at the firm’s River Park Industrial Estate plant, is named after town’s last brewery, Locke & Smith, which closed its Water Lane doors in 1914. The tipple is 3.9 per cent alcohol.

Haresfoot Brewery will be officially opened by Berkhamsted mayor Ian Reay on Thursday, April 24, when its beer will be blessed by St Peter’s Church vicar Father Tom Plant.

The Lock Keeper’s Arms is now available at the following locations:

Anchor, Bourne End

Bell, Bovingdon

Berkhamsted Golf Club

Black Cat, Chesham

Black Horse, Tring

Bricklayers Arms, Flaunden

Kings Arms Berkhamsted

Lamb, Berkhamsted

Rising Sun, Berkhamsted

Valiant Trooper, Aldbury

White Hart, Whelpley Hill
