Started brewing in July 1996, based at White House Farm, Plumpton Green using a 1½BBL plant. The brewery was run by Rev Godfrey Broster and was set up to provide a way of raising money towards the repair of three parish churches. By the end of 1996, the brewery had outgrown its location and moved to its present location during the early months of 1997. A 5BBL plant was used at the new location. Stopped brewing during the second half of 2001 due to ill health. Restarted by May 2002. Brewing was again suspended in November 2004, but restarted in early March 2005. Brewing ceased in 2020.

Since the 1974 local government reorganisation there has been much controversy over many county boundaries. The links we provide cover all areas possibilities: Ceremonial Counties which are the counties for which a Lord-Lieutenant has been appointed, Historic Counties (and their allied county boroughs) which represent the position before the 1974 re-organisation and Local Authority which represents the third tear District level.
