The West Barsham estate in North Norfolk, home to the Barsham Brewery, is steeped in farming heritage. Susanna Soames’s family have owned and farmed the land here for generations. In an area renowned for its top quality agricultural soil, North Norfolk’s sea air and unique micro-climate help us produce some of the best malting barley in the world. Our Maris Otter Barley is then malted just down the road at Crisp Maltings. The malt is blended with beautifully pure water from our own well to make our collection of six beers, and we are very proud to be the purveyors of a “Norfolk born and brewed”, product in the very truest sense.
Their home and heritage run through each and every part of their business. Their signature blue and brown bottles are inspired by Susanna’s Great Grandfather’s racing colours from his days as a successful racehorse owner in the 1930’s, and our beers are now named after significant places and personalities (human and animal!) that have marked life on the West Barsham estate for over 100 years
