What makes us unique?
Freshly Milled Malt
Milled in our own, state-of-the-art malt mill. Most breweries use pre-milled malt, often milled weeks before brewing. We mill our malt on the same day we brew and this gives our beers unusually rich malt textures and flavours.
Whole Leaf Hops
Rather than increasingly common hop pellets or oils. This allows the full range of hop tastes to come through rather than just the concentrated bitterness of the modern alternatives.
Fermentation With Fresh, Live Yeast
We use a live yeast strain with ancestry dating back over 200 years. Our yeast differs from the dry yeast used by many micros as it smooths out some of the harshness in the hops and gives our beer a mellow edge.
Environmentally Aware Brewing
We source our electricity from the vast array of solar panels on the building roof. We also ensure all our used malt product is consumed by local, free range pigs.
Salsa Plus Beer Standard
We are extremely proud to say we have again achieved the Salsa Plus Beer Standard. Approval certification is only granted to suppliers who are able to demonstrate to a SALSA auditor that they are able to produce safe and legal beer and are committed to continually meeting the requirements of the SALSA plus Beer standard.
We are a Cask Marque accredited venue. That means we've had a unannounced visit from an assessor who assessor checks that all of our cask ales on sale for temperature, taste, appearance, and aroma. These visits happen at least twice a year.
