Vibrant Forest

We are Vibrant Forest, a small microbrewery nestled on the edge of the New Forest National Park. Our passion is to brew beers full of exceptional flavour.

Every style and every beer we create is designed to bring forth a grand adventure in flavour. Whether it be from cask, keg or bottle, we want our beers to excite the palate and stimulate the taste buds. We’re Vibrant Forest, welcome to our journey.

Every beer we brew is unfined and vegan friendly.

Kevin Robinson, head brewer and founder of Vibrant Forest, started in his Garage in 2011 brewing on a 1BBL kit, supplying local pubs with an odd cask here and there, while still working as a software engineer for IBM here in Hampshire.

Kevin then moved to the brewery here today in the heart of the New Forest National park in 2014, after giving up his career and going full time, we have built up over time to a 12BBL brewery, distributing across the UK and Europe, and now employ 5 people full time.

We have won many awards for many of our beers but Kick-Start is the most decorated beer locally winning no less than 8 awards, and Black Oktober has been decorated nationally winning 2 awards.

Vibrant Forest


Style:West Coast IPA
Format:330ml bottle, 330ml can, 30L key keg
Tasting Note:Our flagship beer, this IPA has a warm malty backbone and a beautiful amber colour. We dry hop it to oblivion with American hops resulting in a giant tropical explosion and a gentle bitterness on the finish
Awards:Beer of the Festival Woolston 2015

Vibrant Forest

Black Oktober

Style:Imperial Russian Stout
Format:330ml bottle, 20L key keg
Tasting Note:This dark beer is a complex and thick wash of deep flavours. Roasted espresso, dark chocolate, thick molasses, treacle, wood . An unholy bitterness remains long after drinking. This beer is to be taken very seriously
