The Weald & Downland Open Air Museum, home to over 50 historic building exhibits, demonstrates how barley and hops are transformed into ale and beer.
The museum’s traditional buildings tell the story of the rural community that lived and worked in them over a 600-year period, all within a 50-acre site.Ale and beer produced using the museum’s own hops is grown at the 18th century Tindalls Cottage and then brewed by the cooks in the Tudor kitchen.Each autumn the produce grown here is harvested from the period gardens, orchard and hedgerows, then cooled and preserved for winter, just as our forebears would have done.The Autumn Countryside Show in October is a great excuse to see the farmers in action, with plenty of food stands and the chance to try out traditional rural crafts.
