An Idea was Brewing...
The idea for our brewery was the result of a chat between two friends sharing a little down time and a couple of mediocre beers in 1997.
The following year, our first real brew, ‘Godfathers', won a ‘Bronze' at the Great British Beer Festival in the 'Best Ale in Britain’ category.
20 years and 30 million pints later, IVB continues to innovate and thrive. Nestled in the heart of Hampshire, we brew an unrivalled range of award-winning real ales with pure Hampshire water, yeast and barley along with the finest hops from around the country and the world.
There is plenty going on at the Brewery in 2019. With the launch of LPA - Light Pale Ale and the opening of Beers in the Brewhouse (click here for more info). Twenty years after it all began our brewery has found a new lease of life
