Tom Caxton – the name that all home beer makers will remember. Tom Caxton launched the “homebrew” concept and brought this fascinating hobby to the attention of the British public back in the 1970’s by a series of highly visible advertising campaigns and good distribution through High Street outlets.

You can trust a Tom Caxton beer kit to brew beers of the highest quality and character. This is because we do not compromise on the quality or selection of our raw materials. We use only the best malts and hops and provide the home beer maker with a yeast strain that has been carefully chosen for its hardy and robust character and an ability to turn our balanced grist formulations into fine beers.

Today you can choose the Tom Caxton beer kit to suit your palate. Our range is carefully designed to offer a wide variety of beer styles, true to type and simple to make. Take home a “Tom Caxton” today – make it your beer!

Tom Caxton real ale

I have made about 5 of these brews and find the results to be good. I have seen reviews saying all sorts about Tom Caxton real ale but it's my go to kit and if you give it time to mature it's a decent pint at a good price and easy to make. I tend to keep my ale for 3 or 4 months before tasting and recommend the use of the hop enhancement as I find hop flavour mellows over time.
