About us

Brewing the finest beer for over 30 years

Woodforde’s has now been brewing beer for over 30 years. We are passionate about using only the very best ingredients in our beers: ancient water from beneath the brewery; Norfolk Barley; and a diverse array of whole hops that give our beers both flavour and aroma.

Our success has been built by a loyal team of people, a significant number of which have worked with us for over 25 years.

We try and produce innovative beers that showcase the exciting breadth of hops that are being grown around the world coupled with the best malting Barley in the world, grown locally. All our beers deliver a balanced flavour in order that one pint never seems quite enough.

We are lucky enough to have won numerous awards including two Champion Beers of Britain for Wherry and Nog and in 2012 we won the ‘Pride of Norfolk’ award at the Norfolk Food and Drink Awards for Food & Drink excellence.

We strive to combine good beer with great service and we hope that this combination will ensure a long-term future for our business.


Brewery Shop

The Woodforde’s Shop opened in 2007 and is packed full of Norfolk goodies including our full range of beers in bottle and most beers in beer boxes. We also now have a range of Seasonal Ales that can be bought in beer boxes and often in bottle too. We also stock cider and wine either made locally or sourced from a Norfolk farmer!

There is an ever-increasing range of branded clothing and merchandise, which make ideal gifts for the Woodforde’s enthusiast. There are books on beer and Norfolk Pubs and Breweries.

We enjoy being a part of Norfolk life and we stock a delicious range of Norfolk food produce. These are often local foods and chutneys enhanced with our beer but there are other products from people that we admire and who share our passion for great local ingredients.

We love people visiting the brewery and have frequent, out of hours brewery tours. instead. Please contact the shop on 01603 722218 for more details click here.
