Chalk Hill Brewery beer pumps


Chalk Hill Brewery was formed in 1993, and is now the longest running independent brewery in Norwich.

The brewery is a custom built 15 barrel plant and brews a selection of eight real ales. We supply our beer to local pubs including The Coach And Horses which is on the same site as the brewery, and The Alexandra Tavern on Stafford Street.

We're very happy to be featured in CAMRA's Good Beer guide 2018, which includes the best real ale pubs in the UK.


From light session beer to strong, dark ales

All our beer is brewed from malt from Norfolk maltings and the finest hops, we take pride in our ale and only brew one beer from one grist, no blending, no dilution just quality.

Celebrating 25 Years At Chalk Hill Brewery

Chalk Hill Brewery and The Coach And Horses celebrate their 25th anniversary in July 2018.

To celebrate, we've launched a new beer - LOS93

LOS93 is a clear German Weiss style beer, American pale ale fusion at 5.6%.

After many suggestions, the name was chosen in reference to a private joke between the head brewer and one of the owners. Maybe Robbie will explain it next time you're at the brewery.

LOS93 will be served at The Coach And Horses from July 14th.

HEAD BREWER - Robbie Wincup

Head Brewer Robbie with a pint of Black Anna real ale

Robbie began his career brewing beer from home, and joined Chalk Hill Brewery as the head brewer in 2015.

Our previous Master Brewer Dave Winter has been around to offer guidance and knowledge earned from his many years at Chalk Hill, and also from running his own Winter's Brewery.

Since joining us at Chalk Hill, Robbie has created his own signature ales including Mustard IPA, Cattermole, Black Anna and LOS93. All have been very popular ales, it will be interesting to see what brew Robbie creates next...

Robbie is also a talented musician and performs gigs across the UK.


Chalk Hill ales are featured in local beer festivals including the Norwich Beer Festival and Norwich City Of Ale.

Our ales have won many awards at Norwich Beer Festival over the years, including "Beer Of The Festival" which was awarded to Chalk Hill Best three years in a row from 2001 to 2003.


Chalk Hill Ales are available to purchase in growlers, mini kegs, poly pins and take away containers.
