ARISE Amber Ale (3.9%)

Rise and shine, lets get this year into gear.  And with what better beer than this sturdy brute, packed full of home grown hops.  Firstly Bramling Cross delivers a spice blackcurrant jab backed by Challenger to bring full-bodied refreshment.  Goldings polishes things off, administering a smooth, subtly sweet finale.

Bishop Nick will see you through.

Arise (3.9%) Amber Ale is our latest Limited Edition offering.  Hugely popular last winter, we have brought it back in cask and 500ml now available online, in our brewery shop on site at East Street and in selected outlets across the county.

Visit our brewery shop on site in Braintree to purchase your beers at source and meet the team.  If you come by on a Tuesday or a Friday, chances are we’ll be brewing.  We stock presentation packs which make perfect gifts (think Valentines…Fathers Day…) and to order, we can supply beer in polypins etc… for entertaining or for holing up in front of War & Peace on the BBC!
