Cabin Brewery

Bildeston’s Craft Brewery

Cabin Brewery is a small brewery in the village of Bildeston, I have been brewing craft ale since 2013. In late 2015 I decided it was time to start sharing my achievements with other real ale lovers. My ales have proven to be very popular at local beer festivals with orders from Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex. My Ales can be tasted at a number of local hostelries and we introduce new outlets in the news section. Confidence in my beer was justified when I attended my first festival, Bury St Edmunds Beer Festival 2016, there was a lot of interest and Cabin Gold Rush was one of the fastest sellers on day one.

I am happy to supply your favourite Cabin Ale for your special event or party. I can deliver and will supply all the necessary equipment like racks and taps etc. I stock a number of ales from the catalogue at any time. However, the sooner you are able order will help me to ensure your choice is available and perfect for your event.
