How long have you been brewing?
Since we took over The Jolly Sailors in 2009. We inherited Brancaster Brewery and wanted to continue the local brewing tradition.
Does it make a difference using Norfolk ingredients/water?
The barley used in our brews is north Norfolk unique due to its coastal climate. Every location has its nuances and so we are making the most of ours.
How many different beers do you brew?
Four regular beers – Brancaster Best, Oystercatcher, Malthouse and The Wreck. We do seasonal beers too such as The Smuggler and Sharpie K12.
What is your best-seller in the summer?
Oystercatcher is our top summer beer. It sells really well and is the perfect pint to be drinking in the warm summer sun.
Where can people find your beers?
On tap at The Jolly Sailors www. jollysailorsbrancster.co.uk and The White Horse, both in Brancaster Staithe and also bottle conditioned ales are stocked in lots of local delis and farmshops including The Real Ale Shop at Branthill (who also grows some of the malting barley for us as well!)
