Briarbank Brewery – here for your beer

The craft of beer-making is hard at work at the Briarbank microbrewery. Located in a light and open setting that was once occupied by Lloyds Bank, here you’ll witness our brew master blending traditional methods with brave new flavours and techniques. Bringing you award-winning local ales – from our barrels to your glass.

With a two-barrel (BBL) system that’s powered by electricity, rather than by gas, we have the capacity to brew over 350 litres – that’s eight casks – at any one time.

Brewing two to three times every week, and with four fermenters on our line, we can produce four different beers at any one time – certainly a unique brewery operation in Ipswich.

You will find our Briarbank beer on tap in our own Briarbank Bar and in our sister establishments – The Gardeners Arms, Venue 77 and Isaacs on the Quay.
