Welcome to Colchester Brewery

Welcome to the Colchester Brewery, located in Wakes Colne in Essex, a few miles from the historic town of Colchester.

Our policy is to brew memorable beers. By using double-drop brewing and with the development of old-style fermentation and brewing yeasts our beers are already delighting the discerning drinker and have won awards at a number of festivals around the country. These traditional brewing methods result in beers that settle very quickly, which makes us popular with landlords! We also sell direct to the public in firkins and polypins, and 500ml bottles -more info here.

Please browse around the website for details of our beers and where to get them!

Why the Viaduct Brewhouse?

If you visit or know the area, you will see why we chose the name the Viaduct Brewhouse. The brewery is within a stone's throw of the famous Colne Valley and Chappel viaduct, 32 arches long, which carries the single-track railway between Sudbury and Marks Tey - an iconic East Anglian sight.
