Founded in 2006, Stroud Brewery began as a passion project for our adventurous and environmentally conscious founder, Greg Pilley. A true beer enthusiast, Greg's mission was straightforward: to craft exceptional-tasting beers for the local community while embodying the positive change he envisioned in the business world.
Fast forward to today, and Stroud Brewery stands as a flourishing enterprise. Our tap room, now a beloved local landmark in Stroud, has evolved into a vibrant social hub. We take pride in producing not only great-tasting but also ethical and organic beers. At Stroud Brewery, we don't just brew beverages; we create inviting and enjoyable spaces for our community to come together.
