Greene King Brewery

For more than 200 years, we’ve been brewing quality cask ales at the Westgate Brewery in Bury St Edmunds.

WESTGATE BREWERY – THE HOME OF GREENE KING BEERS
It’s exciting to think that we’ve had a brewery on our site since 1799. But even more impressive is that brewing in the town can be traced back as far as the Domesday book in 1086.
