Beck Farm, Bailleul - farm & brewery

Hop harvest at Beck Farm
hop-picking  beer fest  effigy burns
Hops are ready to pick in early September - an occasion Beck Farm marks with a beer festival, at the end of which an effigy of the farmer is burnt on a bonfire.


Monsieur BECK's beer comes in champagne-style corked bottles. He grows all the ingredients on his own farm.

Monsieur Beck grows all the ingredients for his delicious hoppy beer on his own farm: not only the hops, whose fruits add the distinctive bitter flavour, but also the barley grain (which is sent away to a nearby malthouse for roasted and soaked ready for brewing) and the fresh pure water drawn from a well on the farm.
