The Teme Valley Brewery opened in 1997 at The Talbot. Until September 2000, the brewery was the only privately owned UK brewery growing and using its own hops for brewing..


Where It All Began

In September 2000, after hop picking, the Lulsley Court Estate was sold. The Clift family had been growing hops at Lulsley Court since the late 19th Century and had been much involved in the history of hop growing in the area, and were among the first to change to mechanical hop picking in 1947.

The Teme Valley Brewery will continue to feature Worcestershire Hops in all its beers, with 90% still grown at Lulsley Court.

Our Beers

THIS (3.7%)
All the easy drinking virtues of a light ale. Brewed with Worcestershire Challenger and Goldings hops to give a vivid hop aroma and a subtle bitterness. Perfect with a light lunch – a ploughman’s or a sandwich.

THAT (4.1%)
A chestnut coloured best bitter brewed with crystal malt to give a robust malt flavour. Challenger and Sovereign hops give a potent bitterness to balance any sweetness. A perfect partner to stews or meals with a rich gravy.

A strong, dark and bitter beer. The distinctive dry finish derives from chocolate malt, Pilgrim and Cascade hops. A long fermentation leaves little sweetness behind. A good counter balance to a sticky dessert.

Bottled for the first time in 2017, Talbot Blonde is a golden and hoppy best bitter. Using Pilgrim and Minstrel hops to balance the light biscuit malt flavours, this is a very drinkable beer.

Brewed using green un-kilned hops from local farms. Green hops are harvested and then pitched to the beer within an hour of picking to give more aroma and flavour. Try it as an aperitif and savour the unique flavour. This is a seasonal beer and is available while stocks last.

A rich winter beer fermented over 7 days to give a pleasant dry finish. Brewed in October to give time for the beer to condition and allow the flavours of crystal and chocolate malts, Pilgrim, Sovereign and Cascade hops to mingle. Not your run of the mill sweet sticky winter warmer.
