Our Beers are all ‘real ales’ and are brewed using the finest ingredients, local East Anglian malts and British hops. Our water is drawn from our own deep source within the chalk layer, way below St. Peter’s Hall and is ideal for brewing.
We brew ‘traditional’ beers, bitters, mild etc., as well as some more unusual beers such as honey porter and fruit beer.
Even these, however, are not really ‘exotic’ at all, as it was common practice up to the Nineteenth Century to add fruits and honey to beers to create special seasonal brews.
Thus blackcurrant and gooseberry beers would be brewed when soft fruits were readily available in the Summer, while at Christmas-time dried fruits, spices and orange peel would be added to create a special Christmas Ale.
At St. Peter’s we aim to carry on traditional brewing practices, but often have a twist to add to traditional brewing, to give you something new and exciting to try. For example, we have recently introduced Whisky & Suffolk Smokey beers.
