Overview
More
Behind the walls of our Victorian building in the heart of Southwold sits one of the most modern breweries in the UK. Over the past few years the brewery has undergone a complete refurbishment with the replacement of the brewstream being the most recent update. This state-of-the-art installation recovers 100% of the heat and steam from each brew, 90% of which is used to reheat the next. This reduces the amount of gas needed during the brewing process by 30%.The new system can also brew larger batches in less time, making more efficient use of raw materials. It is also very efficient in water usage with a ratio of 3.2 pints of water to every pint of beer, compared to the industry average of 8. It even cleans itself and we're trying to programme it to make the tea too. But don't just take our word for it, book a tour, come and meet one of the brewery team and see it all for yourself. Please book ahead online for by calling our booking line to avoid disappointment.

Out tour guide, Sally, was very knowledgeable, informative and fun and friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. It finished off with some (large) samples of a few beers which was most welcome!

We came here a couple of weeks ago for a brewery tour. When we arrived we were told that the other 10 people that made up the tour group were not able to make it - so we pretty much got our own private tour!...More
