American Amber with Willamette and Chinook hops. Collaboration with Imperial Brewery.
Our flagship beer; a classic best bitter to suit the Bristol palate. Based on a Sixties recipe using all-British malt and hops. It is temptingly copper in colour with a malty aroma and is notably well balanced with malt and biscuity tones, polished off by a satisfyingly bitter finish.
Dark ruby beer with rich malt, roasty and nutty flavours, smooth with subtle, deep red fruits and an easy-drinking style.
Since we’re based in the post-industrial heartlands of Lancashire, we needed a true northern lad of a beer that tells it like it is. So open thy chops and get thee some of this golden ale down t’piehole.
The session version of our Raw - Grey Ghost IPA with powerful citrus hop aroma.
Hazy, golden, hoppy, citrus IPA. Collaboration brew with Steel Coulson, Edinburgh.
A ludicrously rich, imperial version of Mochaccino Stout. Double the malt, cocoa, coffee, vanilla and lactose, with black treacle and dark brown sugar.
We've taken a gargantuan amount of Bavarian Beech Smoked Barley, renowned for its rich smoky bacon flavour and filled our mash tun to its maximum not once, but twice to create an intense high strength barley wine. The beer was given a lengthy boil to add a depth of caramel sweetness, and once fermented, was aged in brand new American Virgin Oak barrels adding a further layer of fresh oak smokiness.
Citrus aroma full of fresh lemons and spicy zest. The mouth is filled with vanilla malt and left with a long and satisfying bitter finish. An easy-drinking “session beer” with a character, refreshing at any time of year.
Introducing Ilkley’s first lager. Brewed properly, with patience, lagering for a full 7 weeks before dry-hopping. The very definition of a satisfying, refreshing pint.
Anglo-American IPA with mango aroma and flavour with grapefruit and multi-layered tropical fruits, amber gold colour in colour, naturally hazy. A powerhouse of a beer with masses of flavour. Using rich American Cascade, Chinook hops and dry-hopped with Centennial.
A well balanced, smooth session lager with a robust and hoppy taste. Brewed exclusively for the UK market. Pilsner has a smooth aromatic hop taste. It is a cool refreshing session beer with an intense yellow, golden appearance. A truly authentic Bavarian imported session lager and an antidote to the current trends around the UKs mainstream lager brands.
A new British hop developed by hop merchants Charles Faram of Malvern that brings New World-style tropical intensity of flavours. Fruit flavours and aromas, including mango, grapefruit and passionfruit. Complex bitterness with citrus and tropical fruit. The ninth in our occasional series of varietal beers designed to showcase the hop characteristics. Collaboration with our Scottish sister business Steel Coulson Tap.
A vintage cider, Jaggy Thistly is smooth to drink and packed full of flavour. A Dry cider that retains the warming, full bodied mouthfeel you'd expect from a vintage cider.
A smooth drinking medium still cider, low in acidity but with a dry mouthfeel imparted from the pressing of specially chosen British bittersweet cider apples.
A mellow easy going cider from a blend of cider and dessert apples. As the name suggests, our 4.5% blend is based on the Harry Master’s Jersey apples sourced straight from the farm in Somerset. Towards the sweeter end of the scale, with enough character to be different but not too challenging.
