Woodforde’s Norfolk Ales

Woodforde’s has now been brewing beer for over 30 years. We are passionate about using only the very best ingredients in our beers: ancient water from beneath the brewery; Norfolk Barley; and a diverse array of whole hops that give our beers both flavour and aroma.

Our success has been built by a loyal team of people, a significant number of which have worked with us for over 25 years

We try and produce innovative beers that showcase the exciting breadth of hops that are being grown around the world coupled with the best malting Barley in the world, grown locally. All our beers deliver a balanced flavour in order that one pint never seems quite enough.

We are lucky enough to have won numerous awards including two Champion Beers of Britain for Wherry and Nog and in 2012 we won the ‘Pride of Norfolk’ award at the Norfolk Food and Drink Awards for Food & Drink excellence.

We strive to combine good beer with great service and we hope that this combination will ensure a long-term future for our business.
