Dow Bridge Brewery


About the Brewery

The Dow Bridge Brewery was established in 2001 and is owned and run by Head Brewer, Russell Webb. The Brewery is situated in the Leicestershire village of Catthorpe, a short distance from the Roman road known as Watling Street (A5). The brewery takes it's name from the local bridge on the A5 that spans the Avon and is one of the three river crossings that gave the name to the nearby Roman settlement of Tripontium.

Housed in a former coach house to the rear of a  row of Victorian cottages in the small Leicestershire village of Catthorpe. The demand for our quality REAL ales is such that we are looking to re-locate to a larger site to enable us to increase production and meet demand.
We are currently a  small micro-brewery producing a wide range of excellent  REAL ales as detailed on the 'Cask Ales' and 'Bottled Beers' pages of this site.  Not all our beers have been listed on the site as we produce 'Specials' for specific events - such as 'Decimus' which celebrated our tenth anniversary and seasonal beers such as our Christmas ale 'Festivus' and 'Summer Light'. Our full range of beers appears in the Cask Beers section of this website.
