In the South of England lies a small brewery, that produces crazy sour beer.
Little Earth Project is a forward thinking craft brewery with its roots firmly in the beautiful countryside of Suffolk.
They produce mixed fermentation beers, that harvest the power of wild yeast and bacteria to produce a unique flavour.
By using a combination of wild yeast they source from the lees of their own cider, ‘Castlings Heath Cottage‘, as well as organic hops and barley that they grow themselves on a field only 3 miles from the brewery. Plus ingredients foraged from abundant local hedgerows, they can produce beers that are true representations of Suffolk in a glass.
Little Earth’s beers are produced in small batches, between 200-800L at a time, which are then moved to wooden oak barrels to rest for anywhere from 3 months to 2+ years, depending on how it develops. This natural, organic approach is applied to all parts of the business and ethos of Little Earth Project, as well as their pub, The White Horse Inn.
‘Brewing sustainably is something that is more important than ever. Influenced by Tom’s Dad’s involvement with organic grain trading as well as his work with local wildlife trusts, the brewery was built with the environment in mind. We are lucky to have our own borehole on site for water supply and both the brewery and pub next door are equipped with thermal solar panels to assist in heating the water/HLT.’
Once they have brewed their beers, the malt and hop waste is taken to the field where they grow their organic hops and is used as compost and mulch in the winter months.
As Little Earth Project continue to grow, they hope to explore new ways they can brew and operate in an environmentally minded way and continue to protect and celebrate their little piece of the Earth!
