Supporting Independence
Changing Lives


Hello everyone, we have an update regarding our location that may potentially impact the production of our beer and bread temporarily. As you may be aware we operate out of the Ipswich Road Community Hub which is part of Independence matters. A little while ago a drain on the site sunk into the ground and contractors have been assessing the site, ensuring the building was safe to use at all times. Further investigations are now required which will make it impossible to maintain safe access to the site, resulting in a decision by Norfolk County Council to close the site with immediate effect.

***September 2023 update - currently we are unable to fulfil anymore orders until we are back up and running at our new premises - watch this space! ***

As always thank you for your ongoing support,

Team Equal Brewkery

Our Mission

To help people with learning disabilities build the knowledge and skills they need to find employment.

And the best part? Our beer and bread are delicious! By supporting our mission, you're not only helping individuals with learning disabilities build their skills and find employment, but you're also enjoying some of the tastiest craft beer and artisanal bread in town. So why not make a difference today and support The Equal Brewkery.

Who We Are

Based in Norwich, UK, we are the UK's only Microbrewkery teaching people with learning disabilities and mental ill health how to brew and bake!

All our brewers and bakers have learning disabilities and are supported and trained by volunteers. Any profit made goes back into the support and development of The Equal Brewkery.


We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to live a full and fulfilling life, and we're proud to play a role in making that possible. To get involved and support our cause, consider volunteering your time, making a donation, or spreading the word about our work. Together, we can make a positive impact in our community and beyond.

How you can help


We are always looking for new volunteers, even if you can only spare a couple of hours a week, please get in touch!

Buy our beer

You can purchase our beer directly from our Brewkery in Norwich, from the UK's smallest off-licence - Beerhatch and from the East of England Co-op!

Buy a Brewkery Slice!

If you would like to support us but don't have the time to volunteer then you can buy a Brewkery slice from the comfort of your own home!
