The Nethergate Brewery was born in 1986, in the small town of Clare, in Suffolk. Like many great ideas it was conceived in a pub between two friends, one a businessman and the other a microbiologist…the perfect team to set up a brewery.


We sell a selection of the finest craft beers, ales and lager both online and through our brewery shop and tap room. From our core beers such as Venture, Suffolk County, Stour Valley Gold and Old Growler, to our coriander infused Umbel and Umbel Magna, there’s sure to be something to suit every taste.

Country & ‘Weston’s’

July 23rd, 2019|

On Saturday 27th July from 2pm - 7pm there will be live Country Music in our garden. There will be a selection of Weston's Ciders available plus eight Nethergate Beers.


We have a fantastic range of permanent beers complemented by an interesting and innovative seasonal range. We use ingredients such as coriander, lemon and ginger in our beers to create what we think are some of the tastiest beers around.

What a great brewery. We walked here from sudbury and weren’t disappointed. There is a large selection of ales to taste but also wines and gins. You can either sit out the front, inside or in the back garden. The shop had great stock of all different drinks. Definitely worth a visit.


Lovely time here, had half a pint of the famous “Old Growler” took home two more pints in cartons. Lots of other ales to try. £40 membership is worth it.


Great brewery shop, the staff are friendly and helpful. Got to sit down and try four beers before choosing to buy, so very chuffed. Took home a 9 pint box and 4 pint container of stunning beer.

Can’t wait to book up my birthday gift brewery tour.
