Stroud Brewery began in 2006, renting a small unit in Thrupp, on the edge of Stroud, a vibrant Cotswold town. Greg Pilley set out with a vision to brew delicious beer with integrity - a thriving enterprise that would support the community, the environment and other local businesses.
We now produce a broad range of organic beers in cask, keg, bottles and cans, sold across the UK and with growing interest from overseas. We have brewed some amazing beers, and won some great awards to prove it.
We have an informal bar at the brewery. We enjoy creating an atmosphere where everyone can relax and enjoy our organic beer, other local or organic drinks and wood fired pizzas.
With the continued growth of our enterprise and organic beer sales, we relocated to larger premises in 2019. The purpose-built building has additional brewing capacity, storage facilities, a canal-side taproom with event facilities and far reaching views of the beautiful valley where we are based. We look forward to showing you around.
FOR PEOPLE AND PLANET
Our beers are brewed to organic standards and are certified by the Soil Association. These standards support our ambition to produce the highest quality beers with care for people and planet. Sustainability is at the core of the organic approach. The standards we have to adhere to include not only the ingredients, but also how organic beer is made, packaged and traded.
Organic farming restricts the use of artificial chemical fertilisers and pesticides. Instead, organic farmers rely on developing a healthy, fertile soil and growing a mixture of crops. No system of farming has higher wildlife benefits.

Our keg beers, bottles and cans are also vegan friendly.
