Humber Doucy Brewing Co. is a family-run brewery based in
Bacton in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. Surrounded by the fields that provide the barley used for
brewing, the location captures John and Alan’s love of Suffolk perfectly.
John and Alan, a father and son team, believe there is
nothing better than the combination of Suffolk and beer. Humber Doucy Brewing
Company combines the two beautifully.
You are welcome to visit the brewery, nestled among the
wheat and barley fields of Bacton. The perfect location to create traditional
Suffolk bitter, session ales and seasonal brews.
Tradition, Passion and Innovation
We pride ourselves on combining tradition with innovation,
mixed up with our passion – passion for beer, Suffolk and our brewery.

to have been named by French prisoners of war in the 1800s. We are based in the “Old Jeffries
Garage” in Bacton where we have
repurposed an MOT garage from the 1950s to create our brewery.
Alan worked at Muntons Maltings for over 40 years – and as
you can hear on our video, still can’t shake the Yorkshire accent! John, born
and bred in Suffolk, is an experienced brewer, who loves experimenting and
mixing up the botanicals and develop new brews.
