"Each variety has it's own special flavours and characteristics, but we use a variety of hops, sourced from across the globe to achieve bitterness and aromas to complement the wide range of beers that we produce. This is achieved through a mixture of knowledge, experience, and no small amount of experimentation.
Taste testing has also been known to help!" One of Ian's sayings here at the brewery is that "Great beers, not unlike fine wines, have a range of flavours and character. All are crafted from the finest natural ingredients for you to savour and enjoy, on a relaxing evening on their own or with a complementary meal."
The brewery's range of ales are also in constant demand at beer festivals organised by CAMRA, including the annual Great British Beer Festival held at Olympia in London. In addition to producing its own regular range and seasonal ales, the brewery also provides speciality brews to customer specifications for festivals, pubs and wholesalers.
