Palmers Brewery Fund

Palmers Brewery Fund


Funding the community


Palmers is committed to giving back to the community that surrounds us. In 2011, the Palmers Brewery Fund was set-up to assist local charities and initiatives that seek to benefit the area. As one of the most historic independent family brewers in the UK, Palmers are very proud to be part of the local community in Dorset. The Fund is the latest in a long line of initiatives to support our area.

Each year, up to £10,000 is distributed within West Dorset, and applications for this year’s funds are now open. Funds are allocated on a twice-yearly basis, with deadlines on May 1st and November 1st respectively.

Applications are welcomed from non-political organisations including sports clubs, youth groups, arts projects, schools, heritage initiatives and wildlife and conservation organisations that are based in the area and benefit life in West Dorset.

A story of family, heritage, quality… and beer.


Palmers ales are brewed in one of Britain’s oldest and prettiest breweries and have been since 1794. The only thatched brewery in the UK, Palmers sits adjacent to the river Brit just a mile from Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. All our fine ales are brewed using water from our own naturally rising spring.

Our Head Brewer uses only the finest Maris Otter malt and carefully selected whole leaf hops to produce ales in a way they have been made for generations. Palmers historic brewhouse has a traditional Mash Tun, an open top Copper, along with top fermentation, this is the way ale should be brewed.
