A picture of Three Tuns Brewery


This famous Shropshire brewpub is believed to have first been brewed in 1642. The current classic tower brewery with a 10BBL plant was built in 1888. The beers were sold under the name Three Tuns. Brewing ceased in September 2001 due to problems with beer quality due to some equipment needing replacing with brewing being carried out by Hobsons Brewery & Co Ltd. By January 2003 the pub and brewery had been sold as separate entitles and beers were being contract brewed by Salopian Brewing Company Ltd. Brewing restarted in late Summer 2003.
