Norwich, Norfolk

Buffy's Brewery produced its first beer in 1993 and gains its name from a well-known and revered former resident of the 15th Century Mardle Hall,  home of the brewery.


The brewery was founded by Roger Abrahams & Julie Savory, firstly as a lifestyle choice, but as the beers became very popular with the local pub trade the decision was made to expand the business and offer a wider selection of fine ales to all.


Over the last few years Buffy's has established itself as one of the leading brewers in the micro sector and their beers have won numerous awards.
