About McMullen and Son’s (River Town Brewing)

Hertford’s Brewery has been run by the McMullen family since it was established in 1827. From their award-winning Country bitter, locally famous AK or more contemporary kegged beers under their Rivertown sister brewery, which takes inspiration from bold American flavours, European favourites and local craft breweries, they're passionate about pouring the best. Keep an eye out for their limited-edition seasonal brews and enjoy a range of Mac’s and Rivertown beers at their London pubs, including the Old Bank of England in the City of London.
