Little Earth project - proving that it is possible to brew in an ecologically responsible manner
Our own field - not far from the brewery in Suffolk
We started brewing as Mill Green Brewery in August 2008. Becoming LEP in the summer of 2016.
The brewery is built on the site of an old stable behind the traditional White Horse Inn at Edwardstone, Suffolk.
We have our own borehole and use entirely our own water for brewing, and infact for everything.
The brewery building was built using local wood, reclaimed bricks, sheeps wool, and lime plaster.
The brewing liquor is heated using bio and solar power. We have a 3000litre storage tank that is constantly heated by our solar panels and is then topped up to brewing temperature by a high efficiency wood boiler. (All the wood coming from a local Suffolk Wildlife Trust wood).
We have a field 3 miles away in Chelsworth where we grow a large amount of our own malting barley and even our own hops.
Any electricity we do buy in comes from green energy supplier 'Good Energy'.
