Welcometo our website!

Brewing began in Hurstpierpoint in 1862, when the original Hurst Brewery opened in Cuckfield Road. A century and a half later, the Hurstpierpoint brewing tradition was revived when the Hurstpierpoint Brewing Company Ltd. opened a new brewery in Western Road, Hurstpierpoint and, as a tribute to the Hurst brewers who had gone before them, named it Hurst Brewery.


A 1902 photograph of the original Hurst Brewery's horse-drawn dray provided the inspiration for the new brewery build. You can see this photograph for yourself, proudly displayed in our brewery tap, the sixteenth-century White Horse Inn, on Albourne Road, Hurstpierpoint, or featured on our Founder's Best Bitter pump clip.


In reviving the fine Hurstpierpoint brewing tradition, we remain mindful of both our rich history and our beautiful downland location and we use these concepts to inspire the beers that we brew and the values by which we work. Thus, we endeavour to produce fine real ales which beer enthusiasts from Sussex and beyond can both identify with and enjoy. In this way, we believe that we are ... Continuing the Tradition!
