Our Pub

Text separator
The Green Dragon was established as a pub and microbrewery in 1991 by brothers Robert and William Pickard.
For several years, Rob had been brewing at his home on Bridge Street ― once a pub called the Green Dragon ― when the brothers decided to go into business together.
Our beer is now brewed by our fantastic head brewer, Luke Pawsey, using the same recipe Rob devised in the 1980s.

Our Brewery

Text separator
We brew using whole cone hops and locally sourced malt, milled faithfully on site. Every brew, we crop and reuse our yeast for the next brew ― we have been doing this for more than 30 years.
Our brewery produces seven barrels (around 1,150 litres) each brew. We typically brew three times each month. The process takes around seven days from soaking the grain to putting into cask. Once in cask the beer undergoes secondary fermentation for a minimum of seven days, after which time it can be prepared for serving.
