Using local ingredients where possible, The Godstone Brewers produce an extensive and eclectic range of tasty beers, which have developed a thirsty and loyal local following.
The beer names are often inspired by local Surrey legends and landmarks, such as Trenchman's Hop - which is named after John Trenchman, a pirate turned smuggler who bled to death in 1687 at the Fox and Hounds, Godstone, having been shot by officers of the law.
Then there's Polly Paine's Porter, a strong dark beer named after a legendary medieval witch who apparently inhabited the area known as The Enterdent, which still exists in Godstone today.
The Godstone Brewers’ beers have featured at many local beer festivals, including Oxted, Caterham, Tatsfield, Spa Valley Railway, Guildford and more widely at the CAMRA National Winter Ale Festivals in Derby and Norwich. Their beers also form the core of the Godstoneberry Beer Festival, often featuring one-off recipes alongside the regular and popular ales at the summer event.
Steve and Anne launched Fresh Beer Fridays in February 2017 at Flower Farm. These micro pub evenings take place between 5pm and 8pm every Friday and offering beer lovers the chance to sample freshly brewed beer around the cosy wood-burning stove or outside in the beer garden when the weather is kind. Take away is also available.
While 2020 has been a challenging year for all breweries in Britain, The Godstone Brewers are now looking forward to 2021 with the Strawberry Fields pub garden at Flower Farm, their new and improved taproom and the opportunity to bring their expanded brewing kit on stream.
