Brewed entirely with Azacca hops, this beer will smack you in the face with tropical, ripe citrus aroma. Mango, ripe orange, and pineapple flavours are backed up by a good, rounded grapefruit bitterness and slightly silky mouthfeel. There is a hint of biscuity, sweetness in the background from the use of Munich malt.

Cask served English Porters are a thing of beauty and something we've always wanted to produce. Our take is robust in its roastiness with emphasis on deep chocolate and coffee. A hefty dose of medium crystal and DRC rounds out the flavour with caramel, prunes and raisin. We've fermented it with our very own yeast strain for a malty match made in heaven!

Our first collab with Brew York, the purveyors of delicious dark beers. We crafted a milk stout recipe and loaded it up with cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice, ginger and a bit of pumpkin to make it true to its name. Then used Costa Rican cold brew from our favourite roasters Pink Lane to make a stout so autumnal you won't be able to drink without a pair of Ugg Boots and a flannel shirt.
