solar energy fuels the brewery
Socially responsible brewery based on a farm at the foot of the South Downs National Park, Sussex. We feel passionately about our environment and embrace our beautiful, rural location which inspires us to create beer we love and want to share.
Bedlam was established on Albourne Estate winery in 2011 by a group of friends at the local tennis club and we were then encouraged by our local community to start brewing commercially in 2015. We have since expanded and moved to our current location. We continue to promote a strong community ethos.
Bedlam was named after Bedlam Street running through Hurstpierpoint to our original site. We are informed that the original Bedlam road runs directly through to our new site, which, if true, would be a crazy coincidence!
Behind the bedlam it’s always a barrel of fun.
At Bedlam we take care of brewing responsibly using Solar Power, finishing the cycle of field-to-firkin-to-fork by feeding the cattle with our spent grain and using hops for compost.
Passion and excellence combine to produce award-winning core and exciting seasonal beers and we’re conscious of using quality ingredients, sourcing locally as much as possible and cutting down on food miles.
It’s the synthesis between the South Downs, the coast and our spirit for life, good times with friends, family and local community that motivate us to create our brews.
Vegan versions of all our beers are available on request.
