Our brewery in Staffordshire is the home of Freedom and we think it’s pretty special. Nestled on the side of a small valley with a spectacular view of the countryside it’s the perfect place to focus on our beers. We make all our beer here and nowhere else and that’s just how we like it. Our brewery is setup with some of the latest technology and sustainable brewing practises to show this is how good a beer should be.
Heart of rural Staffordshire
Our brewery is located in the village of Abbots Bromley in the heart of Staffordshire. The local area known mainly for its farming but also its water, which has been used in brewing since brewing beer was a thing! We get our water from a natural spring beneath the brewery, It gives our beers unique characteristics to won't find elsewhere.
Surrounded by wildlife
Here at the brewery we're surrounded by farmland and nature and we often have a few visitors, whether it's loose sheep or curious deer. If you're paying a visit to the brewery be sure to look out for the resident peacock or the rare white deer.
Our brewing process
At Freedom we take great pride in our beers every step of the way, from sourcing ingredients to delivery to our customers. Find out what we do and why it makes our beers taste so good.
We add fresh spring water to the malt and add heat to make sweet 'wort'.
We separate the spent grain from the wort. The grain is dried and used as cattle feed.
Bittering hops are added and the wort is boiled, stabilising it.
Aroma hops are added to the wort before the whirlpool separates the wort from remaining solid ingredients.
The wort is cooled via a heat exchanger (cold water cools the hot liquid and in turn heats the cold, ready to go into the mash conversion vessel).
Fermentation Under Pressure
Yeast is added to the wort which metabolises the sugar into alcohol. Naturally occurring CO2 is creating natural carbonation, delivering a champagne-like bubble.
Transfer to Maturation
The fermented liquid is cooled and left to mature for a minimum of 28 days to deliver layers of soft, rounded flavour.
The beer is filtered to deliver a bright beer. No isinglass (fish bladders) is used making all our beers certified vegan.
Sterile Filtration. Unpasteurised
We filter rather than heat pasteurise to protect the delicate flavours of our beers.
Bright Beer Tank
By the time our beer gets here we can almost taste it!
We pack our beer on site into bottles and kegs.
Ready to be delivered to our lovely customers!
Lager isn’t just the name of a beer, it’s also a process. Lagering requires ageing the beer at cold temperatures for extended period of time, in our case at least 4 weeks. This brings out the real flavours of the beer making it crisp, smooth and cleaner.
Traditionally beer is filtered with isinglass finings (fish bladders) to make the beers bright and crisp. However. due to our extended maturation we use Kieselguhr Filtration making all our beers completely vegan certified.
Fluid Heat Exchange
We use the latest brewing technology to maximise our efficiency and reduce our carbon footprint. We use cold water to cool the hot and vice versa to reduce our energy consumption by 30%.
