Woodfordes Brewery

Great tasting beer, brewed with passion and pride.

Great tasting beer, brewed in Norfolk with passion and pride for almost four decades.
Founded in 1981, Woodforde’s is home to a wide range of beers & ales including two Supreme Champion Beers of Britain, and the FIFTYTWO° NORTH collection of craft beers. Named in honor of Parson James Woodforde, an 18th Century clergyman who wrote lovingly in his diaries of of a love for good food & great beer, our story starts in the 1960’s during the new-wave revolution of home brewers creating authentic flavours & crafting their own beers.

We’ve always stayed true to our values by using the best locally grown malt, carefully selected fresh whole hop flowers & water from the ancient aquifer below us. You’ll find us at the heart of the Norfolk Broads on the rural estate of Woodbastwick where we’ve been for the last 30 years, and we care about our community, our traditions and helping as many people as possible to discover & experience great tasting beer.
