Langham Brewery was founded in 2005 by two good friends, James Berrow and Steve Mansley. They had home brewed real ale in James’ garage to great acclaim for over 25 years and in 2003 decided it was time to progress to commercial brewing.  They were joined in the venture by Lesley Foulkes, James’ partner whose business background completed the skill set.

A 10 barrel plant was lovingly refurbished and with the support of the Cowdray Estate, who converted a superb 18th century granary barn for the purpose and by spring 2006, Langham Brewery was ready to brew.

Sundowner and Halfway to Heaven were born and next came Hip Hop, an instant success and winner of Western Sussex CAMRA beer of the festival 2007 and 2008; followed by 7 more award winning beers over the next 5 years . Steve Mansley retired in 2013, and the brewery continues from strength to strength, winning a further 9 awards in the last 3 years! The brewery now produces 15 different ales, including Black Swallow, (Gold medal, 2015 SIBA SE Regional competition) and winning brewery 2015 Sussex Food and Drink Awards. Also in 2015, Langham was one of the first 4 breweries in England to gain a Cask Marque and the SALSA plus Beer accreditation for its quality brewing processes and performance.  Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for latest news of brews, events and developments…
