The Triple fff Brewing Company Ltd is a small independent brewer of real ale based in Four Marks, Alton, Hampshire, England, founded in November 1997, and producing award-winning bitters, milds and stouts. They own two pubs, the Railway Arms in Alton and The White Lion in Aldershot.
Triple fff launched in 1997 by Graham Trott,and his partner Frank. Graham was a jobber, then paint sprayer by trade, and Frank had a small business changing windows. They were keen home brewers. People liked their brews and when they discovered that you did not need to be a chemist to brew beer commercially, they decided to have a go. They installed a 5 barrel plant in one of the units vacated by the now closed furniture factory on Station Approach in the village of Four Marks, in which factory Trott worked. The station still operates on the steam heritage Watercress Line which runs ten miles between Alton and Alresford.
Graham and Frank took a musical theme for their brewery name as triple fff is the strong note; louder, louder, louder. Some people found the name amusing, and referred to their beer as: Frank's Flushing Fluid. Franks' share of the business was bought out after a few years by Graham, with the help of his mother-in-law Eileen, who also helped financially with cask purchasing and various other necessities.
