From barley and hops to barrels of ale: production of Copper Ale at Palmers in Bridport by Head Brewer Darren Batten and his team Chris Coram, Neal Wheeler and Ed Culloty.

The brewery, dating back to 1794, is unusual for its open topped copper. The only automation in the brewing process is temperature control of the fermentation vessels.
