Brewing Liquor

Joule’s prize-winning ales have always relied upon a plentiful supply of pure spring water for their taste and clarity. It was no surprise therefore that Market Drayton was chosen as the new home of Joule’s Brewery following the closure of the original Stone site, sitting as it does above the same Triassic aquifer. The water in Market Drayton emerges from the bunter pebble beds sixty metres below the brewery and is drawn up through our borehole. The water is very hard, in fact, perfect for brewing the finest pale ales.

Locals have long been aware of the prize asset under their feet and an example of an earlier well is still to be seen in the front bar of the Red Lion Brewery Tap on the Joule’s Brewery site.
