Forged from Cumbrian passion by artisan brewers.
Our beers are well known for their slightly lower ABV, making them an easy favorite with sessional drinkers out to enjoy a good few hours in the local country pub. A welcoming brew – many a Corby Blonde has been sunk by a roaring fireplace with man’s best friend snoozing beneath an iron legged, round top.
It’s no secret that the 4 main ingredients of beer are water, barley malt, yeast and hops – simple, right? On paper yes, but we have taken the time to ensure that even the basic ingredients arrive to us from the highest quality sources in the UK and from international pastures.
Taste preference and pallet experience differ for all of us. Creating variety and flavour encompasses the artistry and skill set of the brewer. Our range of core beers is eclectic enough for all to enjoy and is complemented throughout the year with our seasonal and guest ales.
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 favorite 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.
