In 1978, Butcombe Brewing Co. began. It was a time of cultural, social and political change, a time of unrest, a time of hope.
We shut out the world and made beer.
At that time, no one was risking it all to make simple, premium, easy-drinking ale. To do so was an act of defiance. Or madness. But, 39 years later, it looks like owning a resolutely traditional brewing company isn’t such a crazy idea after all. By going against the grain, to work intimately with it, we made our own statement with every pint. And what was true then is just as important today.
We’re a badge of great taste and a friendship for life. And, like any enduring friendship, you’ll always be happy you chose to spend time with Butcombe. A pint you can believe in.
Reading about beer is like hearing about food. Only a tiny part of the experience. Luckily it’s really easy to find our brews and complete your education.
