We are a botanical brewery in Brighton producing delicious low alcohol and soft drinks to support the creation of drink forest gardens.

Our brews, made with live cultures and natural fermentation, offer more delicious and locally-made alternatives to mass-produced drinks.

Our mission is to revive and share the secrets of ancient brewing and forest culture through community gardening and fermentation.

We are building a network for regenerative agriculture by producing living drinks for living soil, where the profits from the sale of our live botanical brews are invested in community land regeneration.

Our vision is for a world where the full powers of plants and microbes are harnessed for social, ecological and economic good – a brewery that operates like an old tree.

Ordering our drinks online and coming to collect them from our central Brighton brewing HQ is the best way to support Old Tree at present. We are sorry to announce that we are no longer shipping drinks to London due to losses incurred through all of the main delivery providers over the past year. We are supplying Brighton and Sussex and can arrange electric bike or van delivery as appropriate. Please order and then contact us separately if you would like delivery south of London. It is only on shipments via London that we are have experienced this issue.

Before we can open source our project, to network botanical nano-breweries for the revival of fermentation and local harvest culture we need to make our localised drink supply more established in Brighton. The challenge is to find the scale for of production that is small enough to be socially and ecologically beneficial whilst also economically sustainable. This journey of discovery is where we are right now.

#oldtreedrinks provide a delicious way to restore your own biodiversity (your micro-biome) whilst helping the earth’s biodiversity to recover (through the spreading of forest gardens that our ingredients come from and the compost that we make to close the loop).

We are right by St. Peters Church.. Between there and the shop Easy Hours - in the basement of the buildign named “Yachtwerks”. We are Open Monday to Friday from 10 am to 6pm. Give us a call to arrange a collection outside of these times and you can always make an order HERE. Thank you!
