Real ale is a beer brewed from traditional ingredients (malted barley, hops water and yeast), matured by secondary fermentation in the container from which it is dispensed, and served without the use of extraneous carbon dioxide.
Our ales can be enjoyed in various pubs across the region, bu they can also be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home by buying direct from us
Wherever possible we believe in supporting the local community and the region in which we live and work. Quality ingredients are vital to our product and if we can buy locally, then we do, working hard to maintain close relationships with local farmers who can supply us with the raw ingredients we need to make the very best ales
We have created and developed a range of ales incorporating different tastes, strengths, trends and ingredients all with a distinct flavour and aroma
This pale ale is made using the Nelson Sauvin hop from New Zealand. This hop is known for its delicious gooseberry aromas which are reminiscent of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. It is a well-balanced ale, smoothly mixing lingering flavour and bitterness. It has an ABV of 4% which you would never guess from the taste alone.
This is a medium strength ale (4.0% ABV) and is made using final addition American Cascade hops. As with most American hops these are higher in Alpha Acids than English hops so give increased bitterness and stronger flavours. There is a floral citrus flavour to this ale which gives it a tangy refreshing quality.
This is a good summer session ale at 3.9% ABV and is made using the traditional English hops - Progress, Fuggles and East Kent Goldings. It is similar to an English bitter but is lighter in colour and malt flavour and has a crisp refreshing taste which lingers on the pallet.
Yes, we have now canned two of our most popular ales, Whoopass, a strong hopped IPA and Morpheus, a complex malt bill and molasses stout.
Both come in at 7% ABV but with a smooth flavour you'll be tempted to want more.
Brewed in our Quernmore brewery in a valley that has an ancient history these ales will not disappoint.
