Occasional beers

Our humble 1000ltr brew house combines traditional hands on brewing methods with the quirks of modern findings and techniques. Our occasional beers are as full of flavour as is possible, and all are unfined, unfiltered and completely vegan and vegetarian friendly!

We love talking about beer, so if you see a brewer in and around the brew house please stop us for a chat. But be warned… … brewers like to chat!
