The charmingly rustic St Peter’s Brewery, near Bungay in north Suffolk, brews some of the UK’s finest real ales. It uses traditional methods and pure water from a chalk layer deep beneath the 13th-century St Peter’s Hall within its premises.
"The beer we sell most of is our Organic Ale," says managing director Colin Cordy. "It’s very tasty and is sold across the US and Canada. But if you like dark beer, I’d recommend the Cream Stout, a triple gold medal-winner."
St Peter’s Brewery also runs acclaimed pub The Jerusalem Tavern, in London’s Farringdon, serving the brewery’s beers. A word of advice: “We don’t make up silly names for our beer,” Cordy says. "We don’t have Mole Strangler or anything like that. You get what it says on the label."
From £3.80 for a pint of cream stout at The Jerusalem Tavern stpetersbrewery.co.uk
