The brewery at St. Peter’s is housed in listed former agricultural buildings which were last used in the late Sixties. They then became derelict but offered a superb site both for a working brewery and a visitors’ attraction.
Today, the brewery produces ‘real ale’, over 80% of this is bottled, the remainder being for cask and keg beer. Half of our bottle volume is exported. Our capacity is now 17,500 barrels per annum (83,000 pints per week).
Our distinctive oval Bottle is a 500ml copy of one from Gibbstown, near Philadelphia which dates from c. 1770. It was produced for Thomas Gerrard, an innkeeper with a tidewater inn on the Delaware River.
Some of our beers are now sold in a round version of this bottle, mostly in export markets, but you may also see some round St. Peter’s bottles in the UK. Below is a video of our Brewery:
