The Parker Brewery is a small, independent craft brewery based in Banks, Lancashire on the outskirts of Southport. The owner, Richard Parker, is from Preston and after seventeen years in wine sales working for Oddbins and House of Townend Wine Merchants, he took the plunge by opening his own microbrewery.
The brewery is a complete family orientated business, with one full time employee, Richards brother–in-law Stuart and has plans to bring on board his sister-in-law over the next 12 months. Richard has a passion for beer and intends to build a stylish brand synonymous with quality, to gather a loyal local following. The brewery opened in April 2014. It increased in size and moved to the current 5bbl plant in September 2014. The Parker Brewery supplies pubs, bars, restaurants and small independent retailers
