Real Beer

We are delighted to be continuing the tradition of producing real craft beers from local, Sussex hops here at Furnace Brook.

The hops are either produced on site or sourced from local family hop farm and hop farmers extraordinaire A Bushel of Hops, one of only 60 remaining hop farms throughout the UK.

With those we make small-batch, hand crafted beer with no finings or sulphites,
just delicious tasting beer!

Real Stories

We all have stories to tell, they tell us of our past, inform us on the present and allow us to imagine a future. A future that can only be achieved together; by sharing our stories, by working together and by supporting each other. That’s why Furnace Brook Brewery is operated by a community interest company where all surplus revenues go towards community arts & educational initiatives.
