We are Middle Child.

And we are focused on making the best batches of beer possible. We pride ourselves on getting the little details right, like using freshest ingredients and the best water profile for each style.

We’re a nano brewery based in Molesey, Surrey, just the other side of the river to Hampton Court Palace, which was started in 2021 by ex-world champion home-brewer Fraser Withers. He has taken his passion and talent and created a range of beers that have been amazing critics and judges ever since.


Land of Long White Clouds

5.4% New Zealand Pilsner

With flavours of  soft malt with lime, gooseberry and Chardonnay. Expect a smooth mouthfeel and body with incredible drink-ability. 

What is a New Zealand Pilsner?
Compared to a German Pils a New Zealand Pilsner is not as crisp and dry in the finish, with a softer, maltier presentation and a fuller body. Compared to a Czech Premium Pale Lager, it is less malt complexity, with a cleaner fermentation. It is similar in balance to a Kolsch or British Golden Ale, but with a hoppier aroma, showcasing New Zealand hop varieties with tropical, citrusy, fruity, grassy characteristics, often with a white wine-like character. They should not be as hoppy or bitter in balance as an IPA
