St Peter’s Brewery, near Bungay

St Peter’s Brewery was built in the first half of 1996 next to the historic 13th century St Peter’s Hall at South Elmham, Nr. Bungay. It produces a wide range of beers and has a capacity of around 300 barrels/wk (80,000 pints) but it usually produces less.

The bottling hall has been specially adapted to hand St Peter’s unique oval shaped bottle and the brewery produces around 35,000 bottles a week.

St Peter's Brewery

The oval shaped bottles are believed to be a copy of one from Gibbstown, near Phildelphia which dates from c.1770. It was produced for Thomas Gerrard, an innkeeper with a tidewater inn on the Delaware River.

Unfortunately the brewery wasn’t offering tours so I had to make do with emptying my pockets in the brewery shop. They offer the full selection of beers although they’re not that cheap. However, if you don’t care how your bottles look, they sell boxes of 8 mislabelled bottles for £11.
