Detailed Information

General Manager and brewer, Claire Monk, established our microbrewery in 2011. It’s housed in a beautiful listed barn at the heart of this community, and has steadily grown in size to meet the demand for good local beer. We also have some fabulous neighbours in adjacent barns, including a coffee roaster, chocolatier and bakery. All our products can be found at the Welbeck Farm shop in the Welbeck Courtyard.

The two guiding principles which underpin our brewery are to produce the best quality beer in the market, and provide our customers with exemplary service every time. Our head brewer, James, brews 17,000 pints a week which we supply into pubs, restaurants and specialist bottle beer shops within a 35 mile radius.

You won’t see our bottles in supermarkets as we believe that our top-quality, hand crafted ales should only be available in outlets which pride themselves on sourcing the best quality, locally produced beers.

We are based at the centre of a historic estate which is rich with stories and characters from centuries past. Originally a monastic residence established in 1153, it has evolved to become a stately home which was the seat of the Duke and Duchess of Portland. After a spell as an Army training college, it’s now reverted back to a private residence for decedents of the Cavendish-Bentick family who held the title of ‘Portland’ for centuries. Although much of the estate is private, we are able to bring Welbeck’s tales, heroes, and heroines to light using our beer names and illustrations.
