The Hix restaurant group works with Palmers Brewery in Dorset to supply its beer. Chef, restaurateur and food writer Mark Hix opened his first eponymous restaurant in 2008 in Farringdon. He now has sites in Mayfair and Soho as well as Tramshed in Shoreditch and Hixter Bankside. In 2016, Hix and friend Damien Hirst opened Pharmacy 2 in Vauxhall. Outside of London, Hix has two sites in Dorset: Hix Oyster & Fish House and Hix Townhouse, a boutique hotel, both in Lyme Regis.

The Hix range of beers is created for the restaurant group by 200-year-old Palmers Brewery in Bridport. Palmers produces Hix Blonde (4.5%), Hix IPA (4.5%) and Hix Oyster Ale (5.5%) served in 500ml bottles in Hix restaurants.

Founded in 1794, Palmers produces five beers of its own: Copper Ale, Dorset Gold, Tally Ho, Palmers IPA and Palmers 200. It also operates a number of pubs in the south west of England.
