Located in a picturesque old dairy building belonging to the National Trust, Westerham brewery is presided over by owner and head brewer Robert Wicks, who established the operation in 2004.

Wicks is big on eco-credentials, and you’ll learn about all of them on a tour around the brewery. Westerham Brewery supports the organic hop garden at nearby Scotney Castle (also a lovely place to visit if you’re in the area) and can lay claim to launching one of the first Fairtrade beers on draught – William Wilberforce Freedom Ale.

The town of Westerham has rich brewing history, which the tour will also explore – Westerham Brewery has even managed to revive a freeze-dried yeast used by a long-closed brewery from the area, and start using it successfully!

Robert has also opened Beer Discoveries inside Westerham's own Wine Discoveries shop. Expect a fantastic array of beers from near and far, plus a couple of the Westerham Brews on tap for taste or off-sales.
