Kees Bubberman (now of Brouwerij Kees) and John de Vries (now of Brouwerij de Molen) joined us originally to brew this smooth and citrusy India Pale Ale, which is fermented with timed additions of Earl Grey tea during fermentation, heavy infused hopping and traditional cask maturing. The result is a citrus fruit aroma, smooth sleek texture, hop notes are brilliantly complimented by bergamot and a light tannic finish.

Beavertown - Gamma Ray

Gamma Ray - 5.4%

Gamma Ray


5.4% abv

The concept was to create a juicy tropical beer. A brew you can sit on and drink all day, rammed with juicy malts and huge tropical aromas of mango and grapefruit. Massive additions of American hops are added to the whirlpool giving huge hop flavour. The beer is then dry hopped for days, driving the punchy aromas so you can smell it from miles away!

Beavertown - Neck Oil

Neck Oil - 4.3%

Neck Oil

We wanted to create a light, crisp, punchy, go to beer! A beer that you know you can pick up and appreciate or simply get it down ya neck. Extra pale base malts are used to keep it crisp and give the hops a great platform to dance on. Masses of hop additions during the whirlpool and a huge dose of dry hops make this a brilliantly 'easy' IPA.

Beavertown - Bones Lager
