St. Peter’s Brewery is one of England’s original craft breweries, founded in 1996 in former traditional agricultural buildings alongside the moated St. Peter’s Hall, deep in the picturesque Suffolk countryside.
The location, in the village of St. Peter South Elmham, near Bungay, is ideal for the excellent water quality used in the brewing process – all beers brewed at St. Peter’s Brewery use water filtered through chalk deep beneath the brewery, obtained from our own deep bore-hole.
Alongside the brewery, St. Peter’s Hall is a historic venue with a bar and restaurant, and is available for functions, weddings, events, meetings and conferences.
The brewery also owns a London pub called The Jerusalem Tavern – a compact beer-lovers hostelry with a historic style, housed in a building dating from the eighteenth century.
The unique balance of East Anglian malt, carefully selected hops and the time honoured skill of our master brewer create a range of truly distinct classic English cask-conditioned ales, also available in our iconic 500ml oval bottle and 30 litre kegs.
Alongside our range of ‘traditional’ ales, such as Best Bitter and Gatekeeper Golden Ale, we also produce some more unusual beers, such as Honey Porter, Plum Porter and Citrus Beer that replicate traditional pre-nineteenth century practice of adding honey and fruit to create special seasonal brews. Our most recent developments are contemporary session ales such as Stateside Pale Ale, Revival Pilsner and White Raven. With our Without® brand we have created a range of true 0.0% alcohol free beers. Malty, full-bodied and bursting with flavour, St Peter’s Without® is brewed to the exact same standards as our traditional craft ale, just without the alcohol.
