We’ve set out to prove that an easy drinking, everyday beer can still be special. Layers of US hops are set against a backbone of British malts, so what this beer lacks in strength, it makes up for in character. Look out for fresh flavours and aromas of pine, peach, lychee and citrus fruits, tempered by a smoothly rounded bitterness to leave you wanting more.

As pale as a 100W light bulb but as juicy as an IPA. Sessionable, quenching and totally addictive. Biscuity malt base with a hint of sweetness all drenched in fruity/dank hops.

Simple Things Fermentations

5.5% abv

A robust and unctious stout brewed with blackstrap molasses. Rich, roasty, dark chocolate aromas with a hint of Cascade hops lead into a lip-coating, smooth body underpinned by treacle sweetness and rounded off with a satisfying bitter finish. Big and bold, yet light and supremely drinkable.

JIMBO - 4%

A Best Bitter brewed with Pilgrim for that initial bitterness and then the classics Fuggles and Goldings as well as Emperor – a brand new hop as part of the Charles Faram hop breeding program. These classic and new wave hops give JIMBO aromas of mixed berries, crisp apple, yet all balanced with a well-rounded nutty bitter finish.

Soft, fruity, full of huge amounts of heavenly Mosaic aroma, including ripe peaches, mango and apricot, our signature session pale ale. We developed a super soft water profile, used an oat and wheat heavy malt bill, and finished with English ale yeast and huge amounts of Mosaic in the dry hop once fermentation ended.
