St. Peter's Brewery is based at St. Peter South Elmham, near Bungay in Suffolk. Brewery Tours take place from Easter until the end of December, on Saturdays & Sundays at 11am, 12:30pm and 2pm, £10.00 per adult including a bottle of beer to take home. Tours include the story of St. Peter’s Brewery, the process of brewing and a tutored beer tasting following the trip around the brewery. The brewery is housed in an attractive range of traditional former agricultural buildings adjacent to St. Peter’s Hall. Locally malted barley is used, together with Kentish hops, to produce a range of classical English cask-conditioned ales. In addition the company produces a range of superb bottled beers. St Peter's brew ‘traditional’ beers (bitters, mild etc.) as well as some more unusual beers such as honey porter and fruit beer, replicating what was common practice up to the Nineteenth Century to add fruits and honey to beers to create special seasonal brews. Thus blackcurrant and gooseberry beers would be brewed when soft fruits were readily available while at Christmas-time dried fruits, spices and orange peel would be added to create a special Christmas Ale. .
