Saffron Brewery are a family owned and operated brewery on the Essex / Hertfordshire border, located in the picturesque village of Henham. Taking pride in sourcing ingredients locally (their nearest malt supplier is just 4 miles from the brewery), Saffron's philosophy is to produce delicious ales in the most environmentally friendly way possible.

Saffron have taken the art of label design to another level; one of their most popular offerings is bespoke label beers. If you want to celebrate an event or promote a business or just indulge in your own personal beer, you can choose your beer type, bottle cap colour, the beer name, the image or logo used and even get the team to design something around your ideas! They have produced some great collaborations for nearby Duxford Airshow and even worked with comedian (and Henham resident) Ed Byrne on a beer!

We particularly like the 'Essex Serpent' - a traditional English bitter with artwork mirroring that from the popular book by Sarah Perry. Beer and books? What a combination!
