The 1648 Brewery occupies a portion of The Kingís Head pub in the East Sussex village of East Hoathly.
The co-owners, David Seabrook (Brewer) and Robert Wallace (Landlord of The Kingís Head) took a monumentality correct decision and decided to set up the brewery after a chance conversation one March day in 2002.
A year later the research had been completed, the equipment sourced, and the plan was ready to come together. Six months of building preparation, plumbing, electrics and equipment installation later the first brew flowed from the fermenting vessel into the casks - 18 months from conception to product. Not the quickest, but then you canít hurry perfection!! A week later it was sampled, and three weeks later 90 gallons had been consumed - since named 1648 Original (3.9% ABV). More brewing was undertaken, and with the word spreading the beer has travelled to some of the surrounding local pubs - their support being very much appreciated and welcomed - and as far as the Hanover Beer Festival (Brighton) and the Nottingham Beer Festival.
