Adnams plc

Sole Bay Brewery, East Green, Southwold, Suffolk, IP18 6JW

T 01502 727200



The earliest record of beer being brewed at the Sole Bay Brewery dates back to 1345. In 1872, the Adnams family arrived in Southwold, they bought the Sole Bay Brewery and a new phase of history began. The brewery demonstrates a perfect marriage of old and new - the Victorian façade hides what is possibly the UK’s most environmentally efficient, state-of-the art brewing facility. It is where Fergus Fitzgerald, our Master Brewer, and his team create a growing range of award-winning Adnams beers.
