Bedford’s brewing family is welcoming guests inside it's newest venture - Brewpoint

There's a brewery, shop, eating and gathering hub built on five generations of craft beer.

Construction on the new site in Fairhill began in the summer of 2019 and progressed well despite the Covid-19 restrictions the following year.


In autumn last year, Brewpoint’s external garden area was transformed into a Covid-safe pop-up bar to give people a taste of what was to come.

Peter Wells, group manager director for Wells & Co, said: “Necessity is the mother of invention. I’m truly proud of the way that our fifth-generation family business has rolled with the punches over the past 12 months, finding innovative ways to bring Brewpoint’s spirit to life ahead of its grand opening this week.

"We’ve created an entirely new range of Brewpoint beers, shared the excitement with beer fans via online tasting sessions and got our new brews into their hands by fast-tracking the development of our online shop.

"Our ‘A Taste of Brewpoint’ bar saw Bedford locals enjoy a safe return to the great pub experience they’d missed so sorely for the bulk of 2020.”

Tables are available to book now - more will follow this summer, incldung brewery tours.
