Welcome to The Cerne Abbas Brewery!
Head Brewer- Vic Irvine and The Gaffer- Jodie Moore joined forces at the beginning summer of 2014 as the pair share the belief that beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.
Jodie has lived in Cerne Abbas since he was born and Vic emigrated from Berkshire in 2009.
Striking up a lifelong friendship they dreamed a dream of making beer in the valley. First
they needed to learn how to make beer. Vic set upon this path with the guidance and faith of Rob Martin of Piddle Brewery and then on to larger brewery formerly known as Hidden Brewery in Salisbury.
In these following years Vic learned all aspects of brewing and combining consistency and occasional renegade brews allowing his creative side to blossom as Rob gave him the opportunity to push
boundaries with the blank canvas of one off seasonal brews.
Firmly believing in the goodness of local The Cerne Abbas

mix of science and art.
We love our beer, we love our village and we love our
