DUNSDEN GREEN FARM AND BREWERY SHOP

After several months of searching, we finally found a suitable building for the brewery as we came across an old brick and flint grain store on the main site of Phillimore farms, Dunsden green.

Three months of extensive renovations then followed in order to transform the barn into the brewery you see today. It then took another two weeks to install our custom built brewery plant. We now have a 20 barrel brew plant which is capable of producing up to 100 brewers barrels (28,800 pints) of beer each week.

Our beautiful brewery shop opened in 2013 and stocks eight different bottled beers, Loddon merchandise and preserves.

You can also collect our award-winning draught beers in 3.5, 9, 18, 36 and 72-pint containers.

We also have a license to sell beer straight from the barrel, so why not pop up to the brewery for a pint of your favourite Loddon beer?

Shop opening times:

Monday – 9am to 5pm
Tuesday – 9am to 5pm
Wednesday – 9am to 5pm
Thursday – 9am to 5pm
Friday – 9am to 7pm
Saturday – 9am to 3pm
