The Old Cannon Brewery is a brewpub in Bury St. Edmunds,Suffolk, UK. They have a roster of regular cask ales which are produced year round, as well as several popular seasonal beers which are produced at certain times of the year. The Old Cannon Brewery is one of two breweries in Bury St. Edmunds. The other is the large brewing corporation, Greene King Brewery.


This Victorian property was originally home to the Cannon Brewery which closed during World War I. It was later home to a Greene King pub called The St Edmunds Head which closed in the early 1990's. The St Edmundsbury Record Office shows pat and liz Spillane purchased the property from Greene King in 1994, renovated the buildings and reopening as The Old Cannon Brewery in December 1999.


The seven barrel brewplant is situated in a room above the bar, by the bar and in the pub cellars. The bar-dining area features a unique mirror-polished stainless-steel mash tun and boiler. The 2 huge brewing vessels, which were made for an exhibition in Japan in 1997, can be seen in the front room.


The names of many of the beers maintain a British nautical theme. For example The Gunners' Daughter is reference to the practice of disciplining sailors with a lashing received while leaning over the ship's cannons, known as 'kissing the Gunner's Daughter'. Powder Monkey is a term for the young boys who carried the gunpowder on the ships and Black Pig was a derogatory term for Spanish Galleons.

The only regular outlet for the beers is the Old Cannon Brewery itself although they are available in 4, 18, and 36 pint take away containers.
