Nethergate Brewery: A Passionate Suffolk Brewer, Distiller and Retailer

Since our journey began in 1986, Nethergate Brewery has been dedicated to crafting high-quality drinks with passion, creativity, care, and attention. We are a well-loved and committed Suffolk brewer, distiller, and retailer, proud of our history, range, and future.



Crafting Quality Drinks

At Nethergate Brewery, we never compromise on quality. We are always in pursuit of perfection when we’re creating our drinks, exploring new flavours, and tastes to satisfy our customers’ needs. We are proud of our award-winning Old Growler, the only beer to have won twice Overall Champion at the CAMRA Winter Beer Festival, and our Venture Point Five, a national winner at the UK SIBA awards in 2022. Every positive reaction to one of our drinks reaffirms our dedication and excitement in what we do. Simply put, we love making drinks that make people smile!


Innovating for the Future

Nethergate Brewery is always exploring, growing, learning, and changing to stay ahead and stay fresh. Recently, our development and innovation have quickly accelerated thanks to the completion of our new state-of-the-art site. We have trialled better quality ingredients, tested out different techniques, bought a distillery, dug a bore-hole, and gone on a wild flavour-adventure to craft a magnificent range of premium beers, lagers, non-alcoholic drinks, gins, waters, and more! We are excited about the world of possibilities ahead and committed to investing in our future through innovation.


Proudly Local

Located in the picturesque Stour Valley on the outskirts of the beautiful Long Melford village and Sudbury town centre, Nethergate Brewery is proud of where we come from. We’re inspired by the rich ingredients right on our doorstep and regularly work with the highest quality local suppliers to get our hands on the best ingredients. We’re guided by our 2500 local members who regularly give us feedback and share great ideas that help us improve.

Committed to Sustainability

At Nethergate Brewery, we are caring, considerate, and committed to reducing our carbon footprint. We are continuously seeking new ways to be more efficient, reduce our waste, and minimize our impact on the environment. We have changed our packaging to a more environmentally friendly alternative, installed solar panels to harvest our own energy, invested in electric vehicles on site and installed charging units, all in the last 6 months. We’re 100% committed to having a positive business impact and trying to help our community and fellow suppliers do the same. We are all ears for any ideas and what more we can do, so please get in touch.
