What will you choose this summer?

Friday Street is our session ale. There is no set definition of what makes a session ale. It should be light and refreshing. You should be able to enjoy a few without falling over due to the lower alcohol content. The trick is to achieve a low alcohol content whilst maintaining character and flavour. Our Friday Street ale just does that.

This session ale is all about Suffolk summers and enjoying our amazing coastline. Designed to evoke those feelings of heading to the beach, with memories of eternal summers. Made with Simcoe and Amarillo hops, it gives a passion fruit and citrus hit in its light, refreshing body.

This ale is named after a hamlet in Suffolk which is passed on the road to Aldeburgh, one of our favourite places on the beautiful Suffolk coast.


Our Pale Ale is reasonably light on alcohol content, making it a perfect session drink. A pale ale is exactly that – a beautiful pale amber colour ale. Can sometimes be referred to as a bitter due to the earthy flavour.

This is the most popular ale of craft brewers due to the fun we can have with creating the perfect blend of malt and hop. We have produced a hoppy, sessionable pale ale with a bitter finish and noble hop aromas. Our Humber Doucy Pale Ale has a constantly evolving recipe highlighting the most interesting British malt and hop varieties.

We think this makes a marvellous match for some of the outstanding fish and chips you can find in our local pubs and eateries.


Our Nettle and Elderflower Saison is funky and crisp, giving a refreshing drink. This is a reflection of the hedgerows of Suffolk. A collaboration beer with The Food Museum in Stowmarket, and a Bronze winner in the 2022 SIBA Regional Bottle & Can Awards for Speciality and Flavoured Beer. It is quickly becoming one of our most popular brews and is perfect at this time of year.



Wherever you choose to enjoy your Humber Doucy, pop a photo on socials with the tag #IFoundHumberDoucy. We would love to see it. If your local hasn’t yet been converted to Humber Doucy, just let us know and we will see what we can do. After all, everyone deserves to be able to enjoy our fine Suffolk brews at their local!
