English is just that, our take on the trusty English bitter. One of our flagship brews and the first creation we ever considered good enough to share. English is a traditional amber coloured bitter with a rounded malty taste. We use a mix of English hops to balance out the sweet barleys we use in the mash, creating a sturdy and dependable bitter.

We couldn't sit back and ignore the opportunity to pioneer a sweet American Pale Ale. We throw a cart-load of Summit Hops into the boil, this single hop packing quite a punch! Hints of tangerine and grapefruit hit you, followed up with a nice rounded bitterness. Our American has become the go-to A.P.A in our neck of the woods!
