Our heritage

Our story goes back to 1799 when 19-year-old Benjamin Greene moved to Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk to set up the Westgate Brewery. He was carrying on a proud tradition of brewing in the town that stretches all the way back to 1086.

Ever since we first opened our doors, we’ve been looking for ways to refine the traditional craft of brewing. The result? Arguably the finest range of cask ales in the UK.

Our business may have changed in the past 200 or so years, but some things haven’t. The passion for quality and service that inspired our brewing ancestors still inspires us today. It’s our heritage. One that’s been passed down through the generations and that will carry on for generations more.
