 After focusing on Traditional English real cask ales for the first 8 years of production, the brewery now also produces a range of Maltcraft ® beers using hops from around the world, which can be enjoyed in bottles and mini barrels.   

What is now used as our brewing-hall, operated for many years as a milk bottling plant for Collings Hanger Farm, which was a 365 acre dairy farm from the early 1900’s. The farm was bought by Mr Wren Davis in 1923 and has been owned by the Davis family since.  It’s now a mixed organic farm and has a herd of organic suckler cows and grows ancient varieties of wheat for milling into flour.

After over 10 years of brewing and trading, Malt the Brewery now has a number of established routes to market and the on-site brewery shop and Taproom offer a range of visitor experiences from guided tastings to Brewery Tours, social events and private bookings*.


The onsite brewery shop also showcases other local artisan producers including local artisan spirits and produce.

Malt The Brewery Ltd was wholly privately owned until Autumn 2019, when following an EIS-approved crowd funding campaign to Maltsters (members of the brewery club), 53 local members invested £225,000 in the business in return for a 13% share in the business. This enabled some exciting innovations including new serving tanks, a mini barrel filling solution, mobile events bar and locker system.
