About Palmers Brewery

Producing Fine Ales Since 1794

Our ales win awards. Beer drinkers love them. They enjoy the distinctive taste and delicious character and the refreshing, thirst-quenching qualities of Palmers traditional ales. They love the fact that we’re among the UK’s very best small independent brewers. And that we’ve been brewing fine ales since 1794.

At the original Old Brewery in Bridport, West Dorset we continue to use traditional methods with the finest ingredients. Principles that have built our reputation over 228 years. Today, we skilfully combine this best brewing knowledge with scientific knowhow, to create a core range of five quality real ales and small batch seasonal brews for the 21st century.

The Old Brewery is a show piece of how modern and traditional methods can work hand in hand. Our ever-popular brewery tours operate from Easter to the end of October where you can experience the heritage on which we are founded, and the fine ales we are proud to call our own.
