Brand new for 2020 – VISION. A Limited Edition Amber Ale at an easy drinking 3.8%. Try January! Now available in cask.

This is a floral amber ale with grapefruit and pine aromas, and a recipe of sweet crystal, Vienna and Maris Otter malt plus some Simcoe and Cascade for a long hoppy finish.

We had a brilliant Christmas to finish off a bumper year of sales. The shelves are looking a little bare as all of our Limited Edition beers were snapped up in the lead up to the festivities. But we are expecting VISION back in bottle next week soon to be followed by a deliciously smooth stout which we’re brewing at the end of this week.

We took all of our online sales in-house at the beginning of the winter and I’m pleased to say that’s all going well and online sales were definitely up on last year. We like having closer contact with our customers and more control over transportation.

You will probably have noticed that we’ve got a new design for our Limited Editions too. Thought it was time to shake things up a bit. We hope you like them.

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone. Thank you for your continued support.

Witch Hunt (4.2%) is back in bottle for the Autumn. Always really popular for Halloween and Bonfire Night, this bewitching brew is devilishly dark and smooth.

Roasted chocolate malt defines this classic British porter and thrown in to the cauldron with it are Fuggles, Goldings, Celeia and Aurora hops.

Nearly sold out in cask but bottles will be around for the rest of the year. Make sure you have some in the store when it comes time to make your Christmas cake or figgy pudding.  Also makes a wonderful chutney.

Our new Limited Edition brew, Gospel, is a strong, rich golden ale at 4.8%. It sold out in cask extremely quickly. Now available in 500ml bottle online, at our brewery shop and from selected stockists throughout the county.

This one is a glorious golden yellow and tastes like summer’s fruit salad and the countryside’s most fragrant hops; Olicano and Jester. With hints of grapefruit and blackcurrant you could say thanks be to God. Or us!

Dark Mild for May. CAMRA promotes Mild Ales in the month of May every year and this classic beauty has proved really popular with our customers so we’ve brought it back again.  Intense, dark and devilishly moreish, this magnificent mild is dominated by Chocolate malt. It’s not an overly hoppy beer but nice and dry and refreshing.

Dark Mild is flying out in cask as it always does. We expect it to be ready in bottle in a week or so so keep an eye out.

So that’s 3 dark beers we currently have in bottle – Dark Times – a 4.5% milk stout, Witch Hunt – a 4.2% porter and Dark Mild – 3.7%

Remember that you can select from our full range of core and limited edition beers at our Brewery Shop on site.  Open weekdays.
