Wild ales and fresh beers brewed from nature with purpose. Inspired by the creative solitude of our rural location Duration showcases how beautifully brewing and agriculture can exist in tandem. Beers that belong full of balanced nuanced flavour and tempo. Everyday fresh pale ales and crisp pilsners using local grains and crops. Wild ales developed at a slower pace inoculated with native cultures, aged in wood and blended to taste. Our efficient brewhouse delivers deliciously balanced small batches focused on quality and consistency. We strive to be a clean business. Read more on our Bedrock here.

We are an independent founder led farmhouse brewery in Norfolk. Bates, our South Carolinian Brewer, along with co-founder and Londoner Miranda, got busy converting a 16th century barn as the stunning destination to pour time and place into our beer. After two years of collaborative and nomadic releases, Duration, one of the UK’s most anticipated modern breweries released our first Norfolk brewed beers in December 2019. Read more on our Bedrock here.
