At MBCF we love what new innovative breweries have brought to the marketplace. However, we also celebrate brewers who have faced the ultimate test of quality – the test of time. The Hundred Club bar features thirteen of the country’s best breweries who have been brewing for one hundred years or more.

JW LeesSussex’s Harvey’s have been brewing since 1790 – a whopping 228 years, while our own Joseph Holt & JW Lees – have over 350 years of brewing.

The Hundred Club features some of the classic beers which made their brewers famous alongside brand new brews from these historic names.
