When it came to beer, Rob Gilmour and Kevin O’Donnell were like kids in an Arcade. Despite clocking up over thirteen years in the industry together, Kevin as the editor of a beer magazine, Rob as a product buyer for a beer retailer, they always classified craft beer as ‘play’ rather than ‘work’.
To say beer was always on their brains would be an understatement. Lunch breaks in the office, evenings in the pub, text messages at the weekend were all dedicated to the stuff. Whenever they got together, conversations inevitably circled back to beer; what they liked, what they didn’t, who had the best cans and, most importantly, who was making the best-tasting beers. After years of talking about it, reading about it, writing about it, and (naturally) drinking it, they finally got to thinking: we know everything there is to know about good beer, so why don’t we make it?
And so, Arcade Beerworks was born.
Like good beer has been from day one for Rob and Kevin, Arcade Beerworks is strictly For Amusement Only. Brewed by partnering with their favourite, long-trusted, award-winning breweries, each Arcade Beerworks is developed by beer lovers for beer lovers: easy-drinking, great-tasting and executed to Rob and Kevin’s exacting standards. With an ever-growing range of different styles, Arcade Beerworks is a celebration of the endless fun beer has to offer.
