Draycott Brewery – Beers Made in Buckden

Today I got to meet Jon Draycott. Half of the husband and wife team behind the Draycott Brewery based in Buckden, Cambridgeshire.

Not just a top bloke, from a spare room in his house he creates some top real ale in a micro-micro brewery he built himself.


As well as recording the chat you can hear embedded on this page, I got to taste his fine ale.

He makes three beers at the moment with a fourth to be launched shortly. Buckden Bronze Bitter, Buckden Black Porter and Buckden Pale Ale.

All great beers, all “quaffable..” If you find yourself in and around Cambridgeshire go grab yourself a case. He has a great ‘authentic’ little business and is obviously really passionate about what he does.


I endevour to support local suppliers of great produce whereever I find them and am so pleased to have found such a gem.

    What a superb profile of a great local producer! Love it. It’s got us thinking about Tp content curation tools within the app that would make telling complete and long form stories about producers easy. Thank you for this! Hope you don’t mind, I’ve been enjoying your checkins so much, I had to blog about it; http://lovefresh.posterous.com/lovefresh-audiobites-allow-compelling-story-tBy the way, we’ve only served the app up to a very small group of members so far. We’ll be getting the preview out to the rest of the beta group very shortly.
