The Godstone Brewers is a craft brewery born out of an old friendship.

The Surrey-based microbrewery was set up in 2015 by Steve Taylor and Anne Jackson.

Both keen brewers and lovers of great beer since their university days, the pair met up again by chance in 2012 and decided to attend a mashing refresher course.

Today, they're more passionate than ever about producing unique and flavourful beers and real ales.

Based at Flower Farm, just off the A25 between Godstone and Oxted, the brewery produces small batches of approximately 1,000 pints.

Using local ingredients where possible, The Godstone Brewers now produce an extensive and eclectic range of tasty beers, which are fast developing a thirsty and loyal local following.

The beer names are often inspired by local 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 beer range

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. In 2019, the Godstone beers will debut at CAMRA’s Cambridge beer festival.

Their beers also form the core of the Godstoneberry Beer Festival, often featuring one-off recipes alongside the regular and popular ales.

The Godstone Brewers launched Fresh Beer Fridays in February 2017 at Flower Farm. These micro pub evenings take place between 5pm and 8pm every Friday and offer 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.

Every first Friday of the month, the Fresh Beer Friday event includes freshly cooked food at the farm’s Shepherds barn and extends the range of ales on offer.

Local Food Surrey says

They don't like to do things the way they are 'supposed' to at The Godstone Brewers and that's why you'll find a Japanese-inspired beer infused with green tea in their range. Read more about the influences and inspirations that have led Steve and Anne to where they are today, here

The Godstone Brewers beers are packed full of character and their Fresh Beer Fridays are a fantastic way to close off a busy week and relax into the weekend.
