Quantock Brewery was set up in December 2007 in Wellington Somerset. However, it was born out of the love of brewing by our head brewer Rob Rainey. Rob purchased his first home brew kit from Boots but when this didn’t produce the quality of beer he wanted, Rob, a former nuclear engineer, built his own kit from scratch, and the rest is history.

Rob’s philosophy was to brew the highest quality ales using the best natural ingredients. He wanted all the beers to be brewed entirely from the highest quality grain and whole hop cones, the only other ingredients being yeast and water. No chemicals or sugar are added to the beers to ensure flavour is pure. Rob strives to produce quality beers that have flavour and character, far different from the mass-produced beers traditional found in pubs across the UK.

 

We source the best quality natural ingredients from across the world to produce beers that are distributed to pubs, bars and shops not only locally but throughout the UK. We work in partnerships with some of the UK’s best-known wholesalers and national distributors to ensure our beers are always available to fans.

In June 2015, due to continuing demand, Quantock Brewery stepped up to a larger facility in Bishops Lydeard, Somerset, alongside the southern terminus of the West Somerset Railway. The new site allowed us not only to produce more beer but in August 2015 to open our brewery shop and in May 2016 we also opened our taproom to the public, this means anyone can try our beers before they buy, and it also allows us to hold events of all sizes from live music on a Saturday night to 3-day ale festivals.

 

In February 2017, Quantock Ales was invigorated with a massive investment that enabled our team and our new investors to continue brewing our much-loved traditional range of ales whilst also pushing forward to produce new and exciting beers. This coming together of new and old brought about our modern range of craft, hop lead style beers, including our high-in-demand QPA and Titanium.

Quantock Brewery is a CAMRA and SIBA accredited microbrewery. Our brew house is an 8-barrel size with 8 fermenters allowing us to produce 5 brews per week and over 2300 pints per brew. Currently we can produce over 160 casks or 11500 bottles per week. Recently the brew house has started producing kegged beer supplying over 40 key kegs a week. Our brewhouse also features our new HOPGUN. This exciting piece of kit replaces the traditional dry hop brewing process and allows our brewing team to infuse a more intense level of flavour and aroma directly into our new craft beers.

In an industry of endless possibilities, we will always continue to explore new ideas and add to our ever-growing range of beers crafted in the heart of Somerset.
