About the Beacon Hotel
Our Public House History

The Beacon Hotel and Brewery was built about 1850. The first licence was granted in 1852.

The Beacon Hotel and brewery has sat virtually unchanged for decades. It is an English Heritage listed building with national important historic pub interior where time has stood still.

The public house and brewery stand in the shadow of Sedgley Beacon Hills which is 777 feet above sea-level. An ideal walkers paradise being only 10 minutes walk up Beacon Lane with good all-round views from the top.

About the Sarah Hughes Brewery
Our Brewery History


The Traditional Black Country Victorian tower brewery and public house was bought at auction in 1921 by Sarah Hughes.

Brewing home-brewed ales until 1957 when the brewery closed. After 30 years lapse the grandson John Hughes lovingly restored the brewery in 1987, keeping the traditional art of brewing alive.

Beers have been brewed on the premises for over 150 years.

Sarah Hughes Brewery Beers

Dark Ruby

Og 1058 aBV 6%

Dark Ruby Mild combines a balance of intense colour and flavour, making it an award winning festival favourite.


Og 1048 aBV 5%

A golden premium ale brewed with Maris Otter and hopped with goldings to give the beer a hoppy bitter taste with a malty body and sweet finish. A ‘True Bitter’.

Pale Amber

Og 1038 aBV 4%

A well balanced straw coloured bitter which is initially sweet but with a hoppy aftertaste close behind. Makes this a good session beer.
