Founded in 1996, St. Peter’s Brewery is housed in former agricultural buildings and is overlooked by the medieval, moated St. Peter’s Hall which dates back to 1280. Surrounded by rolling fields and rural Suffolk charm, the location is ideal for the excellent water quality used in the unique brewing process. All beers brewed at St. Peter’s use water filtered through chalk deep beneath the brewery, obtained from our very own deep bore-hole. The unique balance of East Anglian malt, carefully selected hops and the timehonoured skill of our master brewer create a collection of truly distinct classic English ales all filled in our distinctive oval 500ml bottle.
