Our ethos

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 tempo 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.

Who are Duration?

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.

Where is Duration?

Abbey Farm in West Acre is in the wilds of West Norfolk. Our rural idyll in the Nar Valley is just 20 miles from North Norfolk’s stunning beaches. Barley fields, ancient woods and grazing cattle surround our 16th century barn at West Acre Priory our chalk steam is an SSSI. Gentle cycle routes and pilgrim paths wind to country pubs, past old watermills and wild flower meadows. Our region yields much of the nations agricultural crops and a re- wilding program is giving some arable land back over to wildlife.

Everyday, agricultural, slow and spontaneous – all brewed with a sense of tempo and place. Both our signature and seasonal releases are brewed in small rotational batches.

Future taproom?

Producing quality balanced beer is our main focus. Sharing a beer in good company is our favourite pastime. Our location is too good to not share and from spring 2020 we’ll open for tours with a modest tap room to swing by and collect beers for your Norfolk day out. Occasional beer and craft focused events at home and in beyond will be advertised on our events page. Planning permission to turn the south end gable into a future on site tap room has been granted as a phase 2 build – once we are in full swing.

Brewery tours?

100% we will do tours. An online tour bookings calendar will open soon. A guided tour around the brewery will show you our efficient 3 vessel brewery and state of the art canning line. Learn about our zero effluent water treatment plant and our hybrid coolship. See our wonderful wooden foeders in the wood division before finish off your tour enjoying a mixed tasting board of our beers. Join our mailing list or check in on our events page to be the first to know when our tour booking system goes live (expected Spring 2020).

Got merch?

Yup lots of caps and notebooks, here

We’re busy making beer most of the time. But every now and then we run some apparel and other doodads. It’s mostly available at the brewery and at our events.

We don’t like throwaway merch, so we tend to make quality products that last.
