3P'S is a small micro brewery, set in the South Derbyshire village of Woodville Swadlincote. 

It was established by an enthusiastic home brewer, who has a passion for traditional cask ales.

Woodville was once renowned for its, "Pits Pots & Pipes" hence the name 3P'S was born.


Incorporating the freshest natural ingredients possible,and never far from an experiment or two, our aim is to create something just that little bit different, yet still retaining that cask ale tradition. 


Occasionally we do produce one off keg beers throughout the year, and small batch bottles & cans. 

Why cask ale? Well, when i moved to South Derbyshire over 35 years ago,my first drink was a pint of Bass,straight from the cask served in a jug!!! from The Saracen’s Head on the outskirts of Calke Abbey, (i thought this is going to be awful) how very wrong i was,it was something very special, this became our local watering hole for some years, until it sadly closed in 2000.Bass is sadly not the same now, as it was then. http://www.closedpubs.co.uk/derbyshire/heathend_saracenshead.html


I brew something different throughout the year, and below is a small selection of ales produced,using only the freshest high quality Simpsons & Crisp malts,crushed on the day we brew, & hops from around the world supplied by Charles Faram. 


All our cask ales are suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians just to make these more available to a wider customer base.

Some of our Sucka punch range of keg & can ales may contain lactose, so are not suitable for Vegans unless specified. 

We hope you enjoy our beers, tell us if you do, and tell us if you don't.
