The George is home to Fonthill Brewing Co based in the Old Stables next door to the pub. Our small but perfectly formed 2.5 barrel plant makes real ale 10 firkins at a time for sale at the pub and our sister pubs ,The Sussex Arms and The Ragged Trousers.

We also produce our own kegged beer. So, expect many of our taps selling ultra local, low carbon beer brewed just a few meters away.

Inside the brewery

10 Firkins at a time

Having spent the previous five years experimenting with recipes on a tiny nano plant in the cellar of the pub, in 2021 we installed a two-and-a-half barrel plant into the Stables. Capable of brewing ten firkins (or 720 pints) at a time.
