About Printworks Brewery

Windsor Castle logo

Inspired by our family heritage and tradition as well as a love for craft beer we have launched a brand new craft brewery located behind our historical pub The Windsor Castle Inn, Lye.

Emily’s father & Grandfather Jack & John Sadler started the family printing & publishing business at number 7 Stourbridge road, now The Windsor Castle Inn & Brewery, when the printing industry was booming in the early 80’s.

Printworks to Brewery to Printworks Brewery!

In 2004 the Sadler family packed in the printing & transformed the printworks into a brewing haven and tap house following in the footsteps of Emily’s great, great, grandfather Thomas back in Oldbury in the late 18th Century.

Inspired by the passion for brewing beer we have continued the family tradition by starting our new Printworks Brewery producing small batches of craft beer to serve in our pub The Windsor Castle Inn and supplying public houses, restaurants, farm shops & deli’s throughout the Black Country & the Midlands.

Gareth enjoys brewing a selection of cask ales packed full of flavour from some of the best English hops & malt available with some extra special limited-edition experimental brews from time to time too. We have also since expanded our range by bottling two of a traditional ales; Bumblebees & Geneva.
