The Orbit Brewery Story
Orbit was born out of travel, beer thirst and music.
After founder Robert had beer traveling around Scotland, whilst taking a particularly keen interest in visiting as many breweries as he could find, he decided to follow his heart and set up a brewery.
After months of planning and talking to as many people as he could about his project, Robert set up a brewery in a double railway arch in Walworth, SE17.
Brewed in London
The head brewer Mario concocts delicious beers to a soundtrack backing of classic and contemporary tunes from vinyl records. This same natural, authentic and unfiltered sound translates beautifully into the Orbit beer, giving you, dear drinker, a "hi-fidelity experience" - their words not ours, but by Jove do we agree.
The Southwark railway arch, where the brewery is based, today houses a team of 5 who curate the whole process from sourcing ingredients to the actual delivery of the more than palatable beer.
Orbit Brewery produce small batch craft beer in a classic European style.
To be specific, it is a Koln style lager. Koln style lager, originated from Düsseldorf, Germany, is a smokey, darker beer over a classic lager. This means it is top-fermented instead of bottom-fermented beer, with a copper colour and big head when drawn from draught.
Having said that, Orbit compliment these with a couple of pale ales too.
Everything brewed is unpasteurised, unfiltered and un-fined, giving the beers that rich colour, flavour, and dry finish.
Each beer is named after a musical reference, and in Nico, Ivo, Neu and Peel we are delivering to you their core range.
