Beer that belongs
“Our vision is to build a destination farmhouse brewery that is educational, pioneering and brings jobs and skills to the area” – Bates
Duration will place a regional craft brewery in West Norfolk to deliver fresh, wild and blended farm-style beers with a sense of belonging.
Rooted in our majestic West Acre home, we wish to pour nature into our beer, celebrating the Nar Valley and all it’s rich produce – cultivating time, terroir and purpose into an estate approach to beer making.
Duration is nestled midway along the Nar Valley Pilgrim Trail in the ruins of an old priory by the banks of a chalk river with seasonal camping nearby.
Inspired by our immediate surroundings and a respect for all that has gone before us, we will make heritage and innovative beer that always seeks to give more back than we remove from our moment in time.
Brewer and savant Bates believes life’s most simple pleasure is taste – best enjoyed around the table together. His brewing pedigree and culinary knowledge have been honed in the US and the UK. He invites the inquisitive and the discerning to pull up a chair, raise a glass and come taste life at the farm.
