Palmers Brewery, Bridport

4.8
#2 of 10 in Breweries & Distilleries in Dorset
Palmers: Brewing finest ales since 1794. In 1794, Dorset rope and net makers the Gundry family built a brewery on the banks of the River Brit in Bridport. In the late 19th century, two Palmer brothers – John Cleeves and Robert Henry – bought the operation and its pubs and gave it their names: JC & RH Palmer. Today, their great grandsons John and Cleeves Palmer work in the company and Palmers Brewery remains among the best of small independent brewers.

The original Old Brewery - famous as the only thatched brewery in Britain - is where the beer is still brewed to traditional methods with the finest ingredients. Palmers' pubs include some of the best-known and best-loved in the South West and are found in pretty country villages, deep in Hardy Country and on the World Heritage Jurassic Coast.

A brewery tour of Palmers historic brewery buildings allows visitors to see each stage of the brewing process and taste the Palmers five fine draught ales:

  • Fun and interesting tour lasting nearly 2 hours. Tour guide made it into one of the best brewery tours I've been on. Good to see an family run business with a lot of history still making it today. The shop has a wide selection beer's, wines and spirits and well worth a visit even if your not going on the tour.
  • Great tour around the brewery with a friendly and knowledgeable guide. All the staff are very friendly in the brewery & made for something interesting to do while it was wet outside!
