The Brewing Process
Brewing is a process steeped in tradition. Harvested East Anglian barley grains are first kiln dried to produce that characteristic flavour of malt. Malt is then milled and 'mashed' in hot liquor to produce a sweet 'wort' that is boiled together with whole hops. Next the hopped wort is cooled then fermented by adding yeast. Hops were not introduced into the brewing process until the 16th Century when Flemish immigrants began growing hops in Kent. The flowers from the hop vines are dried in oast houses before being added to the beer. They improved the keeping qualities, added a rich aroma and bitter flavour to the beer.   





Light, hoppy and bitter. Brewed using a standard pale malt and crystal malt mix with Goldings and Fuggles hops.
Location: Debenham, Suffolk for further details on their website click here>


Silver Adder is a light coloured bitter with fine hop and malt combinations giving a refreshing crisp finish. Brewed to celebrate 25 years of brewing.

Location: Sudbury,  Suffolk


National Guest Ale 


An amber ale with a fascinating aroma. Palate of biscuity malt, spicy hops and light fruitiness. It was named Pedigree in a staff competition back in George Peards day. He is significant because he was the head brewer at the time and he features on the pump clip. 

Location: Burton
