Palmers Brewery


Opening hours

Visitors are welcome to tour the Brewery from Easter to the end of September. The fascinating guided tour starts at 11.00 am on every weekday (excluding bank holidays) and lasts for about two hours.
These specialist tours are very popular and it is advisable to pre-book. You’ll go behind the scenes in the historic brewery buildings, to watch every stage of the centuries-old brewing process. The tour ends with a beer tasting (or a soft drink) in the Conference Room, where you will receive an inscribed certificate and commemorative glass tankard, commemorating your visit. You can book online or at Palmers Wine Store, next to the Old Brewery in Bridport; or call 01308 427 500

At the original Old Brewery at Bridport in West Dorset is where they still work to traditional methods with the finest ingredients. Methods and ingredients that have built their reputation over 200 years. Today, they skilfully blend these best brewing rules with scientific systems, to create five quality ales for the 21st century.

Their draught ales win awards. Beer drinkers love them. They love the distinctive taste and delicious character. The refreshing, thirst-quenching qualities of Palmers’ traditional ales. They love the fact that Palmers Brewery is among the UK’s very best small independent brewers – and that they’ve been brewing non-stop since 1794. Then there’s the pubs. Some of the best-known and best-loved in the South West. Giving you a warm welcome in many of the prettiest locations. In country villages and on the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. Deep in Hardy Country. They’re the place to taste delicious food, relax with family and friends in great accommodation – and enjoy Palmers real ales!
