Our Beer

We make great tasting modern British beer by hand using the best ingredients.

About Our Beer

Our recipes are based in tradition, and we draw on international influence and use contemporary brewing methods to produce modern interpretations of a broad range of styles.

We’re serious about the craft of brewing and strive to make each batch the best it can be. Our beer is unfiltered and unpasturised to keep as much flavour in the beer as possible. It is designed to be served cold and slightly carbonated – and the majority are naturally carbonated by yeast in keg and bottle.

We brew a core range of beers complimented by regular favourites, plus seasonal specials and collaborations. We have been fortunate to work with some of our favourite brewers, chefs, local food producers, and of course other beer fans, to create some genuinely unique beers.
