    Firkins, polypins & mini-casks

PLANNING A BIG BIRTHDAY or a Spring wedding?


72 pints – For large functions (weddings, corporate parties etc…) we can supply 9-gallon firkins (barrels) which come with a stand and a tap and instructions for use. These can be collected from the brewery at a pre-arranged time or we are able to deliver to a local address for a small fee. A refundable deposit is payable for the use of the metal cask which we ask you to return to us asap. Core beers only. £120 + deposit

36 pints & 18 pints – Polypins and Minipins are ‘bag-in’box’ style take home cartons which are recyclable. They are easy to use and are perfect for parties. We can fill polypins and minipins with the core beers and, if stock levels allow, the current Limited Edition brew (check with the office). £60/£40


How to look after your take home beer so as to enjoy it at its best:

  • Keep the beer cool - we suggest around 10-13 degrees.
  • Setting up the box - place box onto a firm and steady surface where you plan to serve from, slightly tilt it forward (try propping it with a hard back book under the back edge) and open the flap around the perforations to reveal the tap.
  • Allow your beer to settle. (Our beer normally settles within about eight hours but, ideally, we'd suggest leaving 24 hours between setting up the beer and serving).
  • Once opened, the beer should pour in good condition for approx 5 – 10 days but in reality it could well be perfectly drinkable for longer.  Note - the last pint might be a bit cloudy especially if you have to tilt the box to serve as this will disturb the sediment at the bottom.


9 pints - Mini-casks are perfect to have on standby for a gathering of friends, for sporting events or for taking to a party…. We sometimes have some made up in the cool store but we advise calling ahead to pre-order yours for collection. We can fill mini-casks with core beers and, while stocks last, our current limited edition brew.. £20

500ml – We always have a wide range of Bottle Conditioned Ales which include Limited Editions. These you can purchase online or in our brewery shop.
