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 8 years of brewing and trading, Malt the Brewery now has a number of established routes to market and the on-site brewery shop and Tasting Bar offer arrange of visitor experiences from guided tastings to Brewery Tours, social events and private bookings*.
The onsite brewery shop also showcases other local artisan producers like local artisan spirits, snacks, crafts & soft drinks.
