About Briarbank Bar & Brewery

When you’re looking for a great beer experience in Suffolk, look no further than the Briarbank Brewing Company. Set just moments from the historic waterfront, in the heart of Ipswich, our award-winning, independent microbrewery and bar was established in May 2013, and we’ve been creating beers ever since. Whether you’re dropping by to sample one of our year-round classics or seasonal beers in our first floor tap room or browsing our online shop to decide which of our beers to add to your mixed case, you’re sure to find a beer to suit your tastes. Always open to experimenting with flavour and technique, we’ve cultivated a great reputation for taste, and we’ve won numerous industry accolades, including two golds and one silver for the East Region in the SIBA Independent Keg Beer Awards 2020. Plus, a further two golds in the 2020 SIBA Digital Beer Awards. Sharing our passion for experimentation with you, we host an annual Homebrew Competition. Open to all homebrewers, whether brewing from extract or from all-grain, we think the prize is pretty special – getting to brew your creation in our microbrewery with our head brewer.
