Our Story

The Three Acres

Brewery co-founders Jamie, Chester and Peter have been close friends since primary school. An inseparable trio, their days were mostly spent outside, riding bikes and playing cricket – all in the ‘Three Acres’. They still do, with a few evenings at the pub thrown in for good measure.

Growing up in the Sussex countryside, surrounded by farmland, the boys gained a great respect for the outdoors, good beer and the British country pub. 

Having developed a keen interest in brewing both traditional and modern styles of real ale, the three of them decided to establish Three Acre Brewery in late 2018 and are proud to provide a range of quality beers showcasing the very best of Sussex brewing. 

The Beer Festival

The Blackboys is a 14th Century Sussex Inn - and the nearest pub to the Three Acres. We had been to the annual Blackboys Beer Festival every year of our lives, so no pressure launching there! We spent most of the day pacing circles in the Brewery and making their way through the odd anti-stress pint.

The next day, we met some old friends and family and tried Three Acre from a bar for the first time. To cut a long story short - the Three Acre Best and Session Pale were the first barrels at the festival to go empty. All gone by the end of Day Two...

Cask Beer

We specialise in cask beer - and believe that there's nothing better than a pint of Three Acre pulled from a pub tap! 

Our cask beers can be found on reputable pub taps across the South East of England, with our available range of cask beers changing regularly depending on season. 

Both traditional real ale styles and more modern craft beer styles can be found from us on the taps. We place emphasis on using a range of high quality malts and hops in every one of our beers. Each one of our casks is conditioned at the brewery for just the right amount of time depending on the style, to bring you a reliably satisfying pint every time.

Small Batch, High Quality

Every one of our beers is produced on a small scale, receiving the time and attention needed to make sure it's at its very best. 

All of our bottles are cask conditioned and filled by hand, meaning the process is a true labour of love. This way, we retain as much of the unique qualities found in our cask beers as possible.

But don't just take our word for it!
