sceptre is something normally reserved for the likes of royalty, but we all carry a sceptre - something that makes us special. For this India Pale Lager we combine Pilsner, Vienna and Caramalts with a huge whack of hops to make what we call a Special Lager beer.

Ridgeside - Nothing But The Snow

Nothing But The Snow - 0.5%

Nothing But The Snow


0.5% abv

A low alcohol cold IPA with Citra, Loral and Cashmere. Cold IPAs take the best elements of a lager and a NEIPA and are mashed together for a cleaner, crisper IPA. Fermented with lager yeast at higher than usual temperatures we have then dosed this with a big old dollop of Citra Spectrum hops, a little magic, and a lot of resting time and voila. A crispy, juicy sensation is born. Collaboration with Mash Gang.

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 - Gamma Ray

Gamma Ray

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!

Our good friend Mick Scrace bought an abandoned orchard of 3000 neglected trees by accident. Through battle with the undergrowth and thinning of dense tangled branches, this fabulous little corner of Sussex is fast coming back into production. His windfall cookers provide the acid tones to all our Eastern Counties style ciders. Blended here with Cox apples from Orchard Farm for a pleasingly smooth green appleyness, softened with mellow spice tones.
