Brewery Stays and Nano-Breewery Courses

Welcome to the Stowey Brewery @ The Old Cider House.

Many people come to visit as we are the only guesthouse with its own nano-brewery.

If you wish to have a look in the brewery cupboard, please mention this when you book. Tastings can be arranged for small groups at £10.00 per person.

We also run beer making courses. These are on a request basis and usually when we need to make beer for the local pubs. Please call Ian to discuss when he will be making the next batches. Courses are £75 per person and are residential (i.e. you will need to pay for accommodation the night before). Unfortunately, due to licensing restrictions you will have to stay with us to partake.

August 2018 – Our Spanish hopped beer …

Stowey Brewery

We are Somerset’s smallest microbrewery (technically a ‘nano’ or perhaps ‘pico’ brewery), producing a couple of pub casks  of real ale a quarter.

We produce a whole range of beers from classic English bitters to a Japanese real lager!

We sell the beer in-house at The Old Cider House (residents only) and to a couple of local pubs (currently The George Hotel and The Ancient Mariner (Nether Stowey) and Pebbles Tavern (Watchet)).

Beers available in the pubs:
