We are a new microbrewery based in the village of Ixworth, near Bury St Edmunds. Our brewery is a small 200L system, set up in a converted shipping container on our family farm.

Run part-time by husband and wife team, James and Kat, Artefact Brewing’s ethos is to make good-quality small-batch beers, with an emphasis on experimenting with local ingredients and seasonal releases. Artefact launched in May 2020.
