Named after Parson Woodforde, the famous 18th century Norfolk diarist, the brewery was founded in 1981 in Drayton. It moved to the Spread Eagle in Erpingham in 1982.
Woodforde's is located at Woodbastwick, close to the picturesque Norfolk Broads and in its 31 years of brewing has produced a number of patriotic ales (including two Supreme Champion Beers of Britain!) which reflect the rich heritage of Norfolk and wider East Anglia.
As the name suggests, Woodforde's is proud of its Norfolk roots; the company is named after 18th century bon viveur Parson Woodforde who enjoyed nothing more than good food and fine ale which he generously shared with his parishioners.

Woodforde's remains true to its original aim of brewing fantastic beer, made only with the finest ingredients including whole flower hops and the best quality Norfolk-grown malted barley. Water comes from Woodforde's own on-site borehole and was one of the reasons the brewery moved to Woodbastwick back in 1989!
