Cabin Brewery

Bildeston's Craft Brewery

Cabin Brewery is a small brewery in the village of Bildeston that has been making craft ales for about 5 years. In late 2015 I decided it was time to start sharing my achievements with other real ale lovers. I am now registered as craft brewer and already sharing craft ales with the local community, its going down very well. I was invited to and attended Bury St Edmunds Beer Festival 2016. I was very pleased with the interest in Cabin Gold Rush, which as a first time out beer was one of the fastest sellers on day one.

Were now supplying beer to local clubs and organisations. We are happy to supply your favourite Cabin Ale for your special event or party. We can deliver and supply all the necessary equipment like racks and taps etc. As a craft brewer, your beer will be specially for you so it’s good to give us a months’ notice where you can.
