The quality of our base ingredients is not a compromise – we use only the very best. Our blonde has a heavy UK influence, with Marris Otter Malt and English-raised hops. The rest of our range incorporates key ingredients from Europe, the USA and New Zealand – creating diversity in both taste and aroma.
Refinement of any brew is a trial and error process. A high degree of sampling & measuring is needed throughout the process to ensure balance and maturity is optimal. That’s why, when we do get it right, the recipe stays firmly in the hands of our head brewer – following his lead, consistency of your favourite beer is guaranteed.
We’ve always been environmentally conscious – recycling and reusing resources safely and hygienically is a concept that we’re ever refining throughout our production process. One initiative that has become tradition is that all of our spent grain is put to great use feeding the many farm animals in the local community.
Everything starts with the hunt for quality ingredients – over the years our journey has taken us around the world. From all corners of the UK and to far-reaching, international pastures.
Once we’ve treated our water to suit the particular style of the beer – the mashing begins, both by hand and stand allowing the malt enzymes the opportunity to convert starch to sugar.
After some integral rinsing and boiling we add delicious hops to gradually increase, bitterness, flavor and aroma – then it’s off to the fermentation vessels!
It’s now the yeast’s time to shine – with her help the sugar is turned into the all-important alcohol content.
Once we’ve hit the right balance, the beer is left to condition for 7 days in our casks.
And that’s it.
It’s now off to the pub, tap the cask, pour the perfect chilled pint and enjoy with friends, family and maybe the odd stranger from time to time!
Someone once said that ‘variety is the spice of life’, we’ve no clue who it was but they were right! And we fully endorse the concept. What is life without diversity, uniqueness, eclectic choice? For us, creating variety is one of the most exciting parts of our job and in 2022 we’ve had some fun! Here are the limited releases that we’ve created in the past year – we have plans for many more in the future!
