Draught Bass is still brewed to an original recipe using only the finest ingredients and the experience of generations. It is brewed with two strains of yeast to produce a complex nutty, malty taste with subtle hop undertones, which has widespread appeal to repertoire drinkers.

Dark, mysterious and full of flavour. This stout has been produced using an authentic Irish recipe from the heart of Southern Ireland. A roast and malt aroma, black in colour. A pleasing mix of roast and malt flavours with some caramel and hop, giving a moderately bitter finish.

Green Mountain


4.3% abv

A New England Session Ale, perfect for summer! We generously dry hop with Galaxy, Mosaic, Citra, and Amarillo hops, creating a hugely aromatic and juicy fruit bomb. It drinks beautifully, with just a light bitterness to keep it balanced.

Beavertown - Neck Oil

Neck Oil - 4.3%

Neck Oil


4.3% abv

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.
