OUR SMALL BATCH PRODUCT LINE

 

Beer enthusiasts will try these beers for interest, taste and possibly education but may not necessarily like or want another of, that’s ok! perfect alternatives to supplement our core range. We brew these on our little kit. Custom made to our own design, this baby has the flexibility to brew 1-5 barrels.

 

These beers may be traditionally brewed British beers like Olde English Ales, Blondes, Pales Ales, English Milds, Scottish lights, 70 80 90 shillings, and Irish Stouts with an aim to giving the drinker a beer reproduced and tasting like it did following the industrial revolution and the birth of commercial brewing.

 

Then there’s Oktoberfests, Alts, Saisons, Kolsch, Pilsner, Bocks, Helles, American Browns, Reds, Belgian and German Wheats again all brewed traditionally according to flavour profiles with specialist yeasts and malts but not regularly brewed by UK breweries.

 

There will also be one-dimensional brews, predominantly flavoured with single variety hops and malts that help identify flavours. And the experimental Bandwagons come with whatever twist our band of brewers wish to brew. Juniper, Chili, Smoked, Sweet, Sour, Fruit, Spice, Coffee, Caramel, Chocolate......​
