Jon and Jane Draycott set up Draycott Brewery in July 2009.
Our small micro brewery is based at Low Farm, Mill Rd in the Cambridgeshire village of Buckden, Nr St Neots.
We pride ourselves in producing bottled real ales. To be bottled real ale, the ale has a second fermentation in the bottle, providing full flavoured beers with a natural effervescence.
Our first official brew produced a light bright ale sold locally under the Buckden Ales brand as Buckden Bronze Bitter or affectionately known as "BBB" and the same beer is bottled under the name Dunster Beach Summertime Ale.
Following the success of “BBB” we are now in addition producing Buckden “Black” porter and Buckden Pale Ale. Also known as Dunster Beach “dark” porter and Dunster Beach Pale Ale.
You may well ask why we are selling our ale in two locations on opposite sides of the country? The reason being, we have a holiday chalet at Dunster Beach, Dunster, Somerset (click here for details) and on site we have a shop which provides a good opportunity for personalising a brand of beer for the holiday makers.
We are very pleased that all three beers,have received CAMRA Real Ale in a Bottle accreditation and we proudly display the “CAMRA says this is real ale” logo on the labels.
We are planning to brew other ales as we become more established.
