Located on the picturesque Holwell Farm in Cranborne, Dorset, we produce a range of quality cask ales using only the finest ingredients including traditionally floor malted Maris Otter Barley.
Motivated by a love of real ale and an interest in home brewing, Scott Wayland was in the vanguard of the new wave of craft breweries when he launched his own commercial brewery in 2007, using a pre-used 2.5 barrel plant in Addlestone, North Surrey. Local enthusiasm and CAMRA support for the new ales, such as the first flagship beer “Addled Ale”, led to capacity being doubled within a year to a 5 barrel set-up.
By 2009 Scott decided to move home, family and business to a more rural area and, after much searching, found suitable premises for the brewery in an old dairy building on a farm in Sixpenny Handley, on the beautiful Cranborne Chase. The beer range was expanded, and a small bar soon added to the building, principally for offsales, with the chance to try-before-you-buy.
