Larkins Brewery is based in Chiddingstone, near Edenbridge in Kent and produces traditional Kentish-style real ales. The brewery was founded in 1986 when they purchased the equipment from the ailing Royal Tunbridge Wells Brewery in Grange Road, Rusthall. In 1988 the production facility was re-located to Larkins Farm where it has remained ever since.

Over the years the brand identity is updated and re-launched with subtle changes, a change of Logo or a new font.
Sometimes this brand update is done by the new owners after a brewery has been sold, other times just to give the brand a fresh new look on the ever growing market.
Below are some notes to help identify some of these changes and an aid to reference the year of the glass.
