HSB - 4.8%



4.8% abv

A silky-smooth premium ale, Horndean Special Bitter was originally the flagship beer of Gales Brewery in Hampshire. First launched in 1959, it’s still brewed with the same passion and pride today – and the age-old recipe continues to go down a storm. Brewed with the finest malt and hops, HSB imparts the rich, soft-fruit flavours of traditional Dundee cake. It’s a tawny, russet coloured beer, with malt and raisin on the nose – and a gentle sweetness that lingers long into the silky smooth finish.

Prophecy - 3.8%



3.8% abv

Prophecy (3.8% vol) is a dry, bitter yet complex pale ale that will challenge the taste buds. It’s brewed using Columbus and Chinook hops to provide contrasting fruit and pine flavours and aromas. Prophecy contains wheat and barley malt.

Stiff Lip

A West Coast style IPA brewed with five different American and new-world hop varieties for a multisensory hop experience. Late dry hopping with Simcoe and US Cascade brings a wave of delicious tropical fruit flavours which crash onto the palette with a pleasingly bitter finish that has been known to stiffen the lip pucker up!

Silver Spur - 4.6%

Silver Spur


4.6% abv

Though ultra pale, what Silver Spur may lack in colour it makes up for in flavour. The pale yet complex malt bill gives a sweet malt base and a grainy freshness. The punchy American hops add citrus notes to the flavour and aroma, with a faint floral edge that speaks of Springtime and the promise of Summer.
